Joshua Robert Dunn and Amanda 'Michayla' Goosman celebrated their marriage on Oct. 21 at The Marietta Shrine Club with the Rev. Paul Morton officiating with traditional vows accompanied by personal vows the couple had written to one another and the Unity Cross in lieu of unity candle.
The bride, daughter of Michael and Jean Goosman of Marietta, wore a 50's inspired, bridal white tea length gown. The gown featured a sweetheart neckline and halter straps with Valencia Organza bodice and pearl and rhinestone dimensional flowers embellishing the side accent and scalloped lace hem. She wore a pearl choker, a side headpiece of white flowers and pearls and a short scalloped-edged pearl and crystal adorned veil. She also wore purple ankle strap heels that matched her two matrons of honor's wine colored crushed taffeta bateau neck knee length gowns.
Serving as matrons of honor were the bride's cousin, Katrina Lauer of Lower Salem, and Renee Ogden of Reno. Serving as junior attendant, in a matching wine colored dress, was the bridegroom's three year old daughter, Miley Dunn, of New Matamoras.
The bridegroom is the son of Michael and Melody Hardesty of Lowell and Angie Riley of Marietta. Serving as best man was the bridegroom's father and as groomsman, Brad Hibbs of Parkersburg.
At the reception there was a sit down dinner, 50's to 70's music, a photo booth and belly dancers performed for after dinner entertainment. The bride's mother designed the floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception.
The newlyweds will cruise to Hawaii in February for their honeymoon and are planning to continue to reside in Reno.
