Jodee Elizabeth Ireland, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. William A. Turner, became the bride of Steven Emil Mashek, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Mashek, in a candlelight ceremony, Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006, at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Nevada.

Greg Ferree solemnized the vows of the double-ring ceremony. Gracing the altar were two nine-branch brass candelabrums, each adorned with periwinkle blue bows. Traditional ceremony music was played by Charlotte Miller, pianist. Soloist was Theresa Spencer who sang "The Lords Prayer." The candlelighter was Johnathon Ireland, son of the bride. Guestbook hostess and wedding assistant was Jennifer Wolfe, friend of the bride.

The bride, who was escorted by her father, wore an ivory satin A-line halter gown. The bodice featured silver and crystal beaded pearls at a gathered empire waist. She carried a hand-tied bouquet of periwinkle blue delphinium, green hydrangea, deep pink miniature gerberas, fuchsia dendrobium orchids collared with green Fuji mums.

Victoria Ireland, daughter of the bride, attended as maid of honor. She wore an aquamarine tea-length strapless gown with a full tulle skirt and shawl. The bodice was tulle accented with beads and flowers. Her flowers were a smaller version of the bride's.

Brynn Wolfe, daughter of BG and Jennifer Wolfe, was the flower girl. She wore a deep coral shantung dress with a rhinestone-accented waistline. It featured a self-fabric tie back sash and multi-hued tulle overlay. She wore a halo of petite mixed flowers and carried a fresh flower ball arrangement of green Fuji mums, coral alstromeria lilies and deep pink pixie carnations.

Ringbearer was Skylur Mashek, son of the couple. Serving as best man was Johnathon Ireland, son of the bride.

A reception and dance followed at the Nevada Eagles Club. The bride's table was centered with a five-tiered cupcake tree. Each cupcake featured basket weave frosting adorned with a white chocolate M. The table was decorated with white tulle; miniature white lights and a ring of flowers from the bride's bouquet encircled the base of the cupcake stand. The groom's table featured ice cream sandwiches, made by the bride and Jennifer Wolfe, and similar decorations. Reception decorations included balloons in the couples chosen colors. Mirrors centered the tables and featured tea-lights and jellybean filled votives with fuchsia, white, or coral gerbera daisies. Five crystal vases featured sweet treats that the guests could take upon leaving.

The couple will enjoy a delayed honeymoon to Las Vegas, Nev., in December.
