Andra Christine Fleming of Midland and Zachary Neil Cryer of Willcox, Arizona, were married at 6 p.m. February 2 at the First United Methodist Church in Hico. The Rev. Jonnie Miller of Andrews officiated.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Fleming of Andrews. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dee Fleming, the late Beulah Fleming of Goldthwaite, and the late Bill and Florene Huckabee of Pecos.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Rusty Cryer of Hico. He is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. James Cryer of Hico and Mr. and Mrs. Allen Gill of Granbury and the late Lois Gill of Hico.

The maid of honor was Marissa Dee Fleming, of Dallas, sister of the bride. The bride also was attended by Katy Cryer, sister of the groom. The flower girl was Alicen Cryer niece of the groom. The candle lighters were Lauren and Hannah Gill, cousins of the groom.

The best man was Wayne Partain, of Irving. The groom also was attended by Russell Cryer, brother of the groom. The ring bearers were Keaton and Christian Cryer, twin nephews of the groom. Ushers were Abel Garza and Jon Ramsey.

A reception followed at the Old Duffau Gym, constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1932

The bride wore a custom mermaid shaped gown made of antique white silk with random sized pearls encrusting the top and fading down the dress. She also wore a cathedral length veil edged in satin imported from Russia. She carried a bouquet of 24 black magic roses made by Miralee Bingham of Andrews. Tying the roses together was an antique white ribbon. Just before the ceremony, the bride's aunt, Louise Fleming, presented her with an antique cameo brooch worn by the bride's fraternal grandmother, the late Beulah Fleming. The bride pinned it on her bouquet. She wore a pearl necklace with a matching bracelet and earrings, given by her father.

The bride's honor attendants wore platinum colored gowns made of crepe over lame and carried black magic rose bouquets. The flower girl, Alicen Cryer wore an antique dress, which had been worn by the bride's maternal grandmother, the late Florene Huckabee, when she was a flower girl at four years old. The candle lighters wore matching crimson velvet dresses.

The groom wore a black Liz Claiborne tuxedo with a black necktie. On his shirt he wore matching button covers and cufflinks embellished with the Texas state seal given to him by the bride.

The groom's attendants also wore black Liz Claiborne tuxedoes with platinum neckties. The ring bearers wore matching black tuxedoes with black bowties.

The candle lighters lit 36 candles to the bluegrass love song "I Will" by Alison Krauss. The grandparents and mothers were seated to the operatic song "From My First Moment" by Charlotte Church. The bridal party walked down the aisle to the classical song, "The Wedding March" by Richard Wagner.

During the ceremony, the couple chose several other songs; "The Wedding Song" by Noel Paul Stookey, "I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman and "God Bless Our Love" written by John Lennon and performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter. The bride and groom left the church to the song "At Last" by Etta James.

The church was adorned with a large centerpiece of red roses surrounded by large standing candelabras. Pews were also marked with red roses tied with streamers of antique silk ribbon.

Guests at the reception were greeted by white luminaries lining the entry and a large Texas star covered with lights, made by Jamey Sawyer, uncle of the bride, which hung on the building. The interior was also decorated with soft lights draped from the ceiling. A large Texas star covered with lights and greenery, made by Dee Fleming, grandfather of the bride, was suspended from the center. The guest tables were covered in platinum clothes with large topiaries of red roses in the center surrounded by silver star candles. Red roses also adorned the serving tables. The bride's table was adorned with a four layer white star shaped cake with raspberry filling covered in fresh red rose petals. The white satin cloth, which covered the table, had been made by the bride's maternal grandmother. The Texas shaped grooms cake, made by Alice Cryer and Betty Cryer, mother and sister-in-law of the groom, was the centerpiece of the groom's table. Large candelabras also illuminated both tables. Rusty Cryer, father of the groom and Sharon Mitchell, friend of the bride, catered the event. Sloppy Joe, a swing band from Waco, entertained guests, which included many from out of town.

After a honeymoon in San Antonio, the couple has made their home in Willcox, Ariz.
