The bride is the daughter of Timothy and Rhonda McGuire, 217 Westwood Ave., Orrville. The bridegroom's parents are Charles and Debra Palmer, 120 W. 16th St., Salem.

Nuptial music was provided by James Klintz on the organ with vocal selections by Dale Kendall and Dolores Shidler.
Escorted and given in marriage by her father, the bride's one-piece, strapless, full a-line gown featured lace-up closures, a silhouette in bordeaux taffeta with cascading bustles draped asymmetrically over an embellished lace skirt. Beaded lace accented the gentle sweetheart neckline and surrounded the signature lace-up back. Handmade flowers were nestled within the bustles of the skirt, with Swarovski crystals, pearls, seed beads, bugle beads, glass beads and sequins. Her diamond white one-tier veil was enhanced with intricate bead work scrolled along the edge. She carried a bouquet with a slight cascade look with white roses, stephanotis and orchids.
