The English Garden at The Lake Club in Poland was the outdoor setting for the July 9 marriage ceremony of Nathan John Fenstermaker of Leavittsburg and his bride, the former Brittany Arianna Myhal of Canfield.
The Rev. John Hutchinson of Emmanuel Community Church officiated at the 2:30 p.m. ceremony that united the daughter of Michael and Becky Myhal of Canfield and the son of Russ Fenstermaker of Leavittsburg and Lori Fenstermaker of Warren.
The bride wore a strapless, limited edition Allure gown of candlelight silk. The ruched, fitted and embellished bodice opened into an A-line bottom, and a line of crystals and buttons followed the low-cut back of the dress down to its cathedral-length train. She carried a simple bouquet of five white calla lilies.
The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father and was given away by her parents. She was attended by her sister, Amanda Myhal of Canfield, as maid of honor and friend, Tiffany Hobbins of Salem, as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Cassie Freudenrich of Mineral Ridge, sister of the groom, Kayla Fenstermaker of Leavittsburg, sister of the groom, and Dalton Proverbs of North Jackson, friend of the bride.
Jarrod Shook of North Jackson, friend of the groom, was the best man. Groomsmen were Bryan Hobbins of Salem, friend of the groom, John Freudenrich of Mineral Ridge, brother-in-law of the groom, Chris Fenstermaker of Cortland, cousin of the groom, and David Alfred of Leavittsburg, friend of the groom. Paige Reardon of Salem was the flower girl, and the bride's cousin, Isaac Myhal of New Albany, was the ring bearer.
The ceremony included many unique, faith-based elements, including a foot washing ceremony, Communion ceremony, and praise and worship. Bob Beals of Austintown, and Rick Blackson and Mary Jo Maluso of Beyond Broadway Entertainment performed musical selections for the ceremony.
The bride and groom greeted guests during a reception that evening at The Lake Club in Poland.
Following an after-wedding brunch on Sunday, the couple spent five days at the Paradise Stream Resort in the Poconos.
Both Nathan and Brittany will receive degrees in music ministry from Malone University.
The couple resides in Canfield.
MR. and MRS. NATHAN J. FENSTERMAKER
