Bethany Marie Brickner and Patrick Daniel Boehler exchanged wedding vows in a double-ring ceremony at 1 p.m. June 26, 2010, at St. Peter Chapel, Alvada. The Rev. Randy Giesige was officiant for the nuptial Mass and assisted by Deacon Lewis Reinhart. An evening reception was held at Meadowbrook Ballroom in Bascom.
The bride is the daughter of Robert and Mary Ellen Brickner of Alvada.
The groom is the son of Michael and Deborah Boehler of Tiffin.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an ivory strapless A-line gown featuring a modified sweetheart neckline with intricately beaded silver embroidery accented with crystals and bugle beads over the satin bodice. Each layer of the triple-tiered scalloped hemline of the semi-cathedral length train was adorned with delicate silver embroidery embellished with sequins, beading and crystals with distinctive motifs ascending toward the waistline at the front and back of the gown. The tiered ivory fingertip veil also featured scalloped edges, silver embroidery and beading. A silver rhinestone tiara and her maternal grandmother's necklace completed the ensemble. The bride's first communion rosary was entwined in her cascade bouquet of pink stargazer lilies, stephanotis, ivory hydrangea, coral alstroemeria, blue delphinium, monte casino asters, ivy and yellow, orchid and ivory roses.
Shana Westfall of Lillington, N.C., served as maid of honor for her college roommate. Bridesmaids were Samantha Distel, Tiffin, and Heather Distel of Mukwonago, Wis., friends of the bride; Monica Boehler, Findlay, sister of the groom; and Brihanna Myers, Findlay, cousin of the bride.
Their floor-length matte satin gowns featured spaghetti straps and an asymmetrical bodice with a hand rhinestone accent at the waist which highlighted the diamond tulle insert of the full A-line satin skirt. The maid of honor appeared in coral and the bridesmaids in aquarius blue, lemon yellow, orchid and paradise green. They carried teardrop bouquets of white hydrangea, monte casino asters and baby's breath accented with mini carnations to match their respective gowns.
The groom's nieces, Maria Boehler and Lacey Gibson of Tiffin, wore ivory satin and tulle gowns styled similarly to the bride's and accented with rum pink and silver lace appliqus and beading, with rhinestone tiaras for their heads.
