The Rev. Dennis Kovarik officiated at the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Cindy Walker and Michael Hale, both of Hopkinsville.
Grandparents of the bride are Edd and Elsie Orten of Cadiz, and Billie C. Hale of Hopkinsville, and the late Barbara Hale.
The groom is the son of Kitty Shapard of Tullahoma, Tenn., and the late Joseph B. Shapard, Jr.
As the bride entered the chapel to the Traditional Wedding March, she was wearing a stunning white wedding gown made by “Modern Classics,” adorned with gorgeous Swarovsk Crystals across the bodice, with spaghetti straps. The beautiful V-back style had a zipper hidden by satin-covered buttons that flowed down the entire dress, extending to the train.
The bride’s accessories were matching elbow-length gloves, and a white headband with miniature white roses and pearls, and she was carrying a bouquet made of medium red roses and white baby’s breath.
Following tradition, she wore silver dress shoes for something old; her gown for something new; her mother’s sting of pearls for something borrowed; and a blue garter for something blue.
Their limousine driver, Michael Custore of Las Vegas, Nev., was their only witness at the ceremony.
The bride is a student at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, where she will graduate in August 2006.
