Vows were exchanged in an outdoor ceremony at dusk overlooking the Willapa River bay.

Instrumental selections were presented on the violin, flute and organ. The bride entered to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D.”

The bride was given in marriage by her father. She carried a bouquet of long-stemmed white roses and lilies, made by a longtime family friend, encircled by white hydrangeas wrapped in brown knotted silk.

Maid of honor was Torrie Matlock, sister of the bride, of Raymond. Bridesmaids were Emily Frasier of Raymond; Kendra Russell of Yakima, Wash.; Jillian Avery of Olympia, Wash.; and Leilani Jambor of Portland, Ore.

Each attendant carried a trio of long-stemmed white calla lilies wrapped with brown silk knots and lightly interspersed with white roses and baby’s breath.

Flower girls were Olivia Matlock, niece of the bride, and Marissa Frasier, both of Raymond. They dispersed multi-colored petals and crystals from handmade baskets covered in taupe sateen.

Peter Hart of Fort Lewis, Wash., served as best man. Groomsmen were David Frasier and Patrick Matlock, both of Raymond, and Charles Tisbangu of Fort Lewis, Wash.

Ring bearer was Adam Frasier of Raymond. He carried a handmade pillow of taupe sateen accented with brown-organza ribbon and Swarovski crystals.

A reception followed the ceremony.

Lanterns softly illuminated the area. Ferns, hydrangeas and salal decorated the gazebo and white arbor, which was designed and constructed by the bride’s aunt and uncle.

Guests were treated to a buffet-style dinner featuring beef wellington, salmon, various salads and a crawfish boil.

The couple will take a wedding trip at a later date. They will make their home in South Bend, Wash.

The bride is completing an Associate of Arts degree at Grays Harbor College and is enrolled in the human service program at Washington State University Extension. The groom is employed with the Pacific County Sheriff’s Department.
