Meridith Lynn Miller, of Belpre and Nathan Eugene Greene, of Nitro, W.Va., were united in marriage on June 19, 2010, at the Belpre Church of Christ. The double-ring ceremony was officiated by Ron Laughery, and the bride was escorted by her father and given in marriage by her parents.
The bride is the daughter of Scott and Mary Miller of Belpre. She is the granddaughter of Alleen Miller of Cambridge, the late Glen Miller of Cambridge and the late Ike and Wanda Wiggins of Ravenna, Ohio.
The groom is the son of Marvin and Kathy Greene of Valdosta, Ga. He is the grandson of Norman and Eleanor Kreaps of Williamstown and Margorie Culp of Lake Park, Ga.
The bride wore a white, strapless, satin gown with an organza overlay and asymmetrical rouching. The gown was complete with buttons down the back and chapel train. The bride's look was completed with a white blusher and veil. She carried a mussie-tussie bouquet of lily of the valley, white orchids, white roses, miniature yellow calla lilies, purple lisianthus, purple larkspur and purple freesias. The bouquet was complete with white-satin ribbon laced, tied and finished with pearl buttons. The lily of the valley, white orchids and white roses held special significance to the bride because her grandmothers and mother carried these flowers in their wedding bouquets. Stephanie Miller of Little Hocking, aunt of the bride, served as wedding coordinator.
The matron of honor was Katrina Nobles, best friend of the bride, of Parkersburg. She wore a spaghetti-strap aubergene organza dress. The bridesmaids were Rebecca Hedden of Belpre, cousin of the bride; Amanda Doak of Vienna, sister of the groom; Rachel Canada of New York City, friend of the bride; and Alexis Miller of Little Hocking, cousin of the bride. Bridesmaids wore strapless aubergene organza dresses. All attendants carried a miniature version of the bride's bouquet in yellow and purple. The flower girl was Kylie Greene of Lake Park, Ga., niece of the groom. She wore a long white satin spaghetti-strap dress with bodice beading and carried purple rose petals.
The best man was Joel Zyla of Boaz, best friend of the groom. The groomsmen were Andrew Miller of Belpre, brother of the bride; Chad Greene of Lake Park, Ga., brother of the groom; Josh Culbertson of Nitro, friend of the groom; and Jon Culbertson of Nitro, friend of the groom. Boutonnieres were miniature yellow calla lilies. The groom's boutonniere was complete with lily of the valley.
The guest register was Katrina Miller of Cambridge, cousin of the bride.
The ceremony included congregational singing led by Scott McFarland of Columbus, friend of the couple and a duet by Kaci Milleson and Courtney Clark, friends of the couple. The bride, accompanied by the Miller Brothers, sang a traditional love song.
The ceremony was immediately followed by a reception in the multipurpose room at the church. The wedding cake was a three-tier white cake iced with cream icing accentuated with swiss dots covered in live cascading flowers. The groom's cake was a chocolate peanut butter cup cake decorated with a monogrammed G.
