The bride was given in marriage by her parents. She wore an elegant sleeveless full-length gown of white satin and chiffon with a chapel-length train. The gown was enhanced with an overlay beginning at a beaded empire waistline flowing down the length of the gown. The rounded neckline was also beaded with beaded straps extending down the back of the gown into a V-shape, which connected at the waistline. Her chiffon veil fell from a tiara made of crystals and pearls. The bride carried a bouquet of burgundy red roses tied with a white satin ribbon.

On the eve of the wedding, the bridegroom's mother hosted a rehearsal dinner at the Sand Trap Restaurant on the grounds of Disney's Bonnet Creek Golf Club.
The bride graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in accounting. The bridegroom attended the University of Missouri and graduated with a degree in finance.
