Nevada County People: NU grad settles in Illinois with her groom

Kristina Rose and Kristopher Dehart were married on June 13 in Rockford, Ill.

The bride is the daughter of Jim and Marilyn Rose, who lived in Nevada County from 1984 to 2007 before moving to Lincoln.

She graduated in 2004 from Nevada Union High School and served two years in the U.S. Army, with an honorable discharge in 2007.

The wedding ceremony took place at the Blackhawk Forest Reserve in Cherry Valley, Ill., with family and close friends in attendance. An informal reception followed the ceremony at the reserve picnic ground.

The bride’s sister, Michelle Rose – who graduated in 1988 from Nevada Union High School and is married to Sam Ward – was the bride’s matron of honor. Peter Daugherty served as best man to the groom.

The bride was given away by both her adoptive father, Jim Rose, and her biological father, Bill Motion of Sacramento.

The groom is the son of Kevin and Karen Sue Dehart of Rockford, Ill.

He graduated in 2000 from Jefferson High School. He was a member of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division for four years. As a Specialist 1, he served one year in Kandahar, Afghanistan, before his honorable discharge in May 2008.

A West Coast reception is planned for June 28 in Santa Cruz, to be attended by family and friends, including Kristina’s great-grandmother, Julia Rose, 106, of Santa Cruz, and her grandmothers Iris Kenney, 92, of Soquel, and Alice Rose, 82, of Roseville.

The couple will reside in Rockford, Ill., where the groom plans to attend college in preparation for a career in teaching. The bride is a manager for a worldwide corporation.
