Joshua Robert Dunn and Amanda "Michayla" Goosman were united in marriage Oct. 21 at the Marietta Shrine Club with the Rev. Paul Morton officiating with traditional vows accompanied by personal vows the couple had written and the Unity Cross in lieu of unity candle.
The bride is the daughter of Michael and Jean Goosman of Marietta.
She wore a 1950s-inspired white tea-length gown featuring a sweetheart neckline and halter straps with Valencia organza bodice and pearl and rhinestone dimensional flowers embellishing the side accent and scalloped lace hem.
She wore a pearl choker, a side headpiece of white flowers and pearls and a short scalloped-edged pearl and crystal adorned veil and purple ankle strap heels.
Matrons of honor were Katrina Lauer of Lower Salem, the bride's cousin, and Renee Ogden of Reno, friend of the bride. They wore wine-colored crushed taffeta bateau neck knee-length gowns.
Serving as junior attendant in a matching wine-colored dress was the groom's 3-year-old daughter, Miley Dunn, of New Matamoras.
The groom is the son of Michael and Melody Hardesty of Lowell and Angie Riley of Marietta. He and his groomsmen wore charcoal grey vests and slacks and white button-up shirts with the sleeves rolled up. He wore a wine color tie.
The best man was the groom's father, Michael Hardesty. Groomsman was Brad Hibbs of Parkersburg, the couple's friend. They wore green ties.
A sit-down dinner reception was held. There were pumpkin, chocolate and vanilla-flavored mini cakes. Belly dancers performed for after dinner entertainment.
The bride's mother designed the floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception.
Centerpieces were grey Grecian urns with hanging amaranths and grapevines, a variety of cream and wine-colored peonies, wine calla lilies, taupe mums, sand dollars and branches from which strands of pearls and crystals hung.
After a honeymoon cruise to Hawaii in February, the couple resides in Reno.
