The bride, escorted by her father, wore a Mori Lee cafe-colored Duchess satin gown with a corset style lace-up back. Asymmetrical draping created the strapless crossover bodice and fitted waistline accented with a crystal rhinestone belt. Swirls cascaded on one side from the skirt to the gathered bubble hemline, which flowed into a chapel-length train.

Bridesmaids were Andrea Distel of Lakewood, cousin of the bride; Lindsey Distel of Tiffin, sister-in-law of the bride; and Christy Gutzwiller of Chandler, Ariz., friend of the bride. They wore purple taffeta floor-length dresses. The bodices featured a ruched empire waist accented with beading above the asymmetrically-draped skirt.
Brendan Aucoin of Oneonta, N.Y., and Tyler Hart of Findlay were their friend's best men. Groomsmen were Joe Sunseri of Orlando, Fla., uncle of the groom; and Ted Distel of Los Angeles, Brad Distel of Tiffin and Doug Distel of Los Angeles, brothers of the bride.
