She wore a gray pearl and diamond necklace with matching earrings that were worn by her sister, Devon, at her wedding. Brianna also wore a wedding band that belonged to her grandmother, Anne Shafer.

The informal wedding and reception were held at the Bar-H Boy's Ranch in Nevada. The ceremony was officiated by Mark Mitchell, uncle of the groom. The bride was given in marriage by her father, Mike Jenkins. Special music included "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait, and after being introduced as husband and wife, "International Harve-store" by Craig Morgan, a favorite song of the couple, was played.

The maid of honor was Devon Murray of Claremore, Okla., sister of the bride.

Kayla Jenkins of Nevada, sister of the bride, served as bridesmaid.

The best man was Derick Jones of Richards, brother of the groom. Eric Greer, friend of the groom and also from Richards, served as groomsman.

The flower girl was Feby Jenkins, daughter of the bride and groom.

Ringbearers were Dakota and Lane Jones, twin sons of the couple. Lane delivered the rings on his quadrunner.

Guest book attendant was Kelcie Jenkins, niece of the bride. Pictures were taken by Amanda Bruce, cousin of the groom.

The cake was made by Carolyn Finley of Carolyn's Restaurant and was a gift to the couple.

Russell Underwood, uncle of the groom, smoked a variety of meats, and carry-in dishes, to complete the meal, were provided by the bride and groom's families.

The rest of the evening was enjoyed by the music of Distant Kin.
