The bride is the daughter of Cliff and Denisa McCauley, granddaughter of Eugene and Loretta Carroll and George and Doris McCauley.
The groom is the son of Dale and Kaylyn Geistweidt, grandson of Mary K. Draper and Norma Geistweidt.
A beautifully decorated arch of grapevine, hydrangeas, and greenery formed the background for the ceremony. The bride chose a dress by Mori Lee, intricately embroidered with silver thread. Sheer netting overlaid the strapless bodice with a semi-sweetheart neckline. An asymmetrical satin and pleated draping hugged the hips, with the fabric gathered to a beaded broach on one side. The A-Line skirt of ivory satin featured embroidery on the overlay of flowing organza and peaked asymmetrically below the broach. A satin band edged the organza hemline around the chapel length train. Her waist length veil of soft netting was trimmed in beading and she wore a strand of pearls, a gift of the groom. Her California style bouquet of cream colored gerbera daisies was accented with greenery, freesia, clear crystals, and ivory ribbon.
Maid of Honor was Lindsay Kramme. Bridesmaids were Leslie Clay, Katie Preis, Meredith Carroll, Kasidy Blankenship, Erin Brown, Patricia Mays, Jennifer Minter and Dawhn Rhoden.
