SIKESTON -- Penny Michelle Moseley and William Kyle DeKriek exchanged vows in a 2 p.m. ceremony May 17, 2003, at the home of the bridegroom's parents in Sikeston. Judge David Mann performed the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Mike and Jennifer Moseley of Sikeston, and her husband is the son of Rene and LaDona DeKriek of Sikeston.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a candlelight two-piece gown with crystal lace up the back and a pearl-laced bodice with beading. The gown featured a French bustled back with crystal beads and pearls. Complementing her ensemble was a fingertip-length veil, which was secured by a crystal and pearl headpiece. She carried a bouquet of gerbera daisies, tulips and larkspur.
Laurie Ray of Sikeston attended her sister as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Heather Woods, Jennifer Hartzog and Paula Miller of Sikeston and Becky Ault of Charleston, sister of the bridegroom. Junior bridesmaid was Caroline DeKriek, niece of the bridegroom.
The bridesmaids carried matching bouquets of gerbera daisies wrapped in ribbon.
Kathleen DeKriek, daughter of Lee and Tanya DeKriek of Sikeston, was flower girl. She wore a wreath made of rosemary, gerbera daisies and baby's breath.
Rene DeKriek served his son as best man. Groomsmen were Lee DeKriek of Sikeston, brother of the bridegroom; Ryan Ault of Charleston, brother-in-law of the bridegroom; and Joey Heckert and Brett Nelson of Sikeston, friends of the bridegroom.
The groomsmen wore boutonnieres with small, matching gerbera daisies made by Helen's Florist in Sikeston. Dakota Ray, nephew of the bride and son of Laurie Ray of Sikeston, was ring bearer.
Guest book attendants were Lisa Johnson of Caruthersville, cousin of the bride, and Missy Williams of St. Louis, friend of the bride.
A reception followed at the home of the bridegroom's parents, where entertainment was provided by the band, Wooden Ships, and Pro Music Sound System.
