The jewel neckline was complimented by short sleeves and cuffed in candlelight Italian satin. The bodice and sleeves were made completely of Venice lace and were accented with pearls in a floral pattern. The Basque waistline allowed the full ball gown skirt to fall gracefully to the floor and sweep into a semi-cathedral train. The skirt was finished with a row of Venice lace around the hem. The back was accented with pearl buttons and three Italian silk rosettes. To complete her ensemble she wore a satin headband edged in pearls and finished with two tiers of candlelight illusion. She carried a hand held bouquet of white tineke roses, white stock florets and stephanotis.

Attending the bride as matron of honor was Ellen Love of Lubbock, long time friend of the bride. Bridesmaids were Amy Green of Waco and Tera King of Fort Stockton, also long time friends of the bride. The bride's attendants wore matching gowns of Wisteria Dulcine satin. The floor length dresses featured empire waistlines, soft scoop necklines, and short sleeves. They were accented in the back with a pleat and sweep train. They carried hand held bouquets of osiana peach roses with larkspur florets and satin covered stems.

J.J. Exum, Trey Armstrong, and Foster Green of Pecos served as ushers.
