Vows were exchanged at a 4 p.m. double ring ceremony at Evangel United Methodist Church in Rochester, Minn., with the Rev. Jeff Utecht officiating.
The bride wore a soft white, strapless and sweetheart neckline gown of tulle over organza, with seed pearl and sequin beaded floral 3D appliques that adorned the form fitting trumpet design with a sweep train.

The peonies in the wedding bouquets were harvested by the bride from her home gardens. The peony bushes were gifts of love and birthday wishes — given by the groom to the bride throughout their 10-year courtship. It was meant to be — to share them on their wedding day.
