The couple were maried on April 12, 2011, in Eureka, Kan., at the Christian Hills Church Camp. The date was chosen by the bride to mark the birthday of her late grandfather, George Ford.
The bride wore a long white strapless satin gown adorned with pearls and sequins at the bodice and trailing down the front of the gown. She wore western boots and a white western hat with a long flowing veil attached. She accented the gown with her grandmother's pearl earrings and carried a bouquet of lavender and yellow roses designed by her grandmother, Dee Norris.
The groom wore a white satin vest with a white shirt and blue jeans. He also wore a black western hat and western boots.
Maid of honor was Becky Bowerman, lifelong friend of the bride. There were three bridesmaids, Keisha Deeann Phillips, Kelcie Lynnann Phillips and Karlie Sueann Phillips, all sisters of the bride. The girls all wore lavender and yellow tea-length satin gowns with western boots. They each carried a bouquet of lavender and yellow roses designed by the bride's sister, Kelcie Phillips and grandmother, Dee Norris.
The best man was Mason McClure. There were three groomsmen, Colton Harmon, Nathan Kinglery and Leo Brown. They were dressed in white shirts with lavender and yellow vests, blue jeans and western boots. They also served as ushers.
The flower girl was Maleigha Danielle Toole, cousin of the bride. She wore a white satin gown trimmed in lavender and yellow with western boots. She dropped lavender and yellow rose petals and rode a lavender stick horse.
The ring bearer was Conner Jacob Sutter, nephew of the groom. He wore attire to match the groom and also rode a lavender stick horse.
The outdoor rock chapel was decorated in a western theme, which was made up of hay bales, wagon wheels, horse reins, saddles and a unity candle designed by Dee Norris.
The reception was also held at Christian Hills Church Camp. There was dancing and karaoke. The three-tiered wedding cake was made and decorated by Brandi Toole, cousin of the bride. The cake was covered with lavender and yellow roses with a western theme cake topper.
The guest book was attended by Andrea Barrager, cousin of the bride.
Rice bags were handed out by Shawn Barrager, cousin of the bride.
