The bride is the daughter of Stephen and Jane Schalk of New Riegel and the groom is the son of Gerald and Doris Heidenreich of Middletown.
The bride, escorted by her father, wore a strapless A-line Mori Lee gown with asymmetrical ruching. The cafe-colored gown in duchess satin featured swirls that cascaded from the skirt to the gathered, bubbled hemline. The dress also featured a corset tie-back that met the flowing, chapel train. She wore a waist-length cafe veil featuring a double blusher and satin edging. She carried a bouquet of red roses, yellow mini sunflowers, Viking pomps, solidago asters and dark orange alstometria.

Bridesmaids were Katherine Ink, cousin of the bride, Sarah Fletcher, sister of the groom, and Amber Loomis, friend of the bride. Sarah Schalk, sister of the bride, served as junior bridesmaid.
The women wore apple red, satin, knee-length dresses, each in a different style. They carried smaller versions of the bride's bouquet.
