Given in marriage by her parents, the bride wore a long-sleeved dress by designer Stella York that featured lace, flowing crepe chiffon, and lace long sleeves. The dress was gathered at the waist, with layers of chiffon that created a gorgeous effect, perfect for twirling across the dance floor. She carried a bouquet of white, pink and burgundy roses with eucalyptus and succulent accents. The bouquet contained special memorial pieces from family members who have passed away. The matron of honor was Michaela McMullin, Gravois Mills, friend of the bride. The bridesmaids were Brooklyn Worthey, Jefferson City, cousin of the bride and Alivia Brewer, Grain Valley, sister of the groom. They wore full length burgundy gowns. The best man was Aaron Brewer, Grain Valley, brother of the groom who also escorted the couple’s furry friend, Bella Ann Brewer, down the isle.

The ring bearer was Emil Joseph (EJ) Zimmer, Freeburg, nephew and God-son of the bride.
