In tradition, the bride wore something old, which was a pearl earring and necklace set that belonged to her great-grandmother, Pearl Payne; something new, which was her wedding gown with a “pick-up” skirt that extended into the train. Her white, two-layered veil was borrowed from Mary Ferguson, friend of the bride. Blue was throughout the wedding theme, as she carried a bouquet of flowers that included blue roses, lilacs and daisies.

The maid of honor was Shelby Haas, sister of the bride. Bridesmaids were Kristina Hrabal, Anna Plasterer, Hannah Willis and Gretchen James, all friends of the bride. The best man was Luke Taylor, brother of the groom. Groomsmen were Jay Maynard, Jason McGlone, Josh Simpson and Joey Stallo, all friends of the groom.

Hannah McGlone and Rachael Payne registered guests. The post-ceremony bubble attendants were Keilie Adams, Eryn Patrick, Alivia Haas and Kebra Mootz. Musicians were Katie Patterson, Kelly Brock and Brian Baker, friends of the couple. Marilyn Rudolph and Rhoda Dickess provided the reception dinner and cake.
