Delaware native Alexa Smith recently married Daniel Crouthamel.
The ceremony, officiated by the Rev. John E. Griffith, was held outside the All Occasion Catering and Banquet Facility the evening of June 18 in Waldo.
Delaware resident Kourtney Pugh was the maid of honor and Logan Giger of Washington, D.C., was the best man. As the bride’s mother has passed, Bree Stapleton was matron of honor for the ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her father, Marion resident Isaac Smith.
The wedding party consisted of four bridesmaids — Ashley Dewitz, Kalin Jobe, Kristin Petrovich and Carly Atkins — and five groomsmen — Adam Dillner, Gregory Tabisz, Thomas Wilson, Andrew Dillner and David Arocho.
The bride wore a fully beaded silver lace/ivory tulle over champagne satin Essence of Australia gown that included a chapel-length train. Her veil was sheer, ivory, cathedral length, drop style with a blusher. For the reception, Mrs. Crouthamel exchanged her veil for a crystal headband. Befitting an outdoor ceremony, the bride’s bouquet was made of wild flowers.
Once the ceremony was complete, guests migrated to the patio and inside the venue for drinks and cocktails.
Later in the evening, once dinner was finished, the formal wedding dances concluded the usual wedding formalities.
After the wedding, the two traveled to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon.
The groom works for a landscaping company. The bride, an Ohio State University graduate, now resides and works in the groom’s home state of Pennsylvania as the two plan to start their life together there.
