The attendants were attired in chiffon gowns with a sweetheart neckline. One shoulder strap was adorned with chiffon and charmeuse flowers. A charmeuse ruched cummerbund accented the natural waist, and the skirt featured soft front gathers.

Janice Frieden and Marla Metzger were the bride’s personal attendants.

Tom Catterson of Bettendorf served as his friend’s best man. Groomsmen were Craig Livingood and Andy Livingood of Postville, friends of the couple; Keith Amundson of Seattle, Wash., and Clay Amundson of Clermont, brothers of the bride.
