Ashley Brooke Goodrich of Foster, and Jason Wayne Smith of Bray, were united in marriage during a double-ring ceremony at 2 p.m. Nov. 7, 2009, at Hope Community Church, with minister B.J. Arnold, cousin of the bride, of Pinedale, Ark., officiating.
Parents of the bride are Dale and Sheri Goodrich of Foster. Her grandparents are Van and Novalene Snodgrass of Foster, the late Terry Goodrich, Russell and Ruth Adams of El Reno, and the late Lenora Adams.
The groom is the son of Richard and Kimberly Smith of Cox City.
His grandparents are George and Barbara Noe of Bray, Linda Smith of Madill, and the late Harlen Smith.
The bride wore a satin halter A-line gown with beaded lace appliqué and lace hem with a chapel train. A satin-edged veil was adorned with pearl accents and a tiara, also accented with pearls.
She was escorted by her father.
The bride chose a family heirloom for her jewelry accessory — a gold dollar necklace, 1852 mint, which had been worn by five generations and belonged to the bride’s nana, Novalene Snodgrass. She also kept tradition with something blue, a garter belonging to her grandmother, the late Lenora Adams; something borrowed, a pearl bracelet from the groom’s sister; and something new, her wedding gown. Her bouquet featured two dozen red roses.
Music was provided by organist Trina Grissom of Duncan, vocalist Jamie Turner (cousin of the bride) of Duncan, and Alana Gill (sister of the groom) of Bray.
The church was decorated in a fall setting. The bridal aisle was marked with candlelight in tall black iron and glass hurricanes adored with greenery, red roses and streaming white satin ribbon.
Antique urns wrapped with red roses and filled with tall white branches, along with tiers of flickering candlelights flanked the steps of the alter. Maid of honor was Brandi Goodrich, sister of the bride, of Foster. Bridesmaids were Kelsie Spivey of Bray, and Carly Potts (cousin of the bride) of Foster.
Junior bridesmaid was Shannon Potts (cousin of the bride) of Foster.
The attendants wore cascading black, sleeveless V-neck gowns with a sparkling broach on each side. Each carried a single red rose with a white ribbon.
The flower girls were Emalee Gill (niece of the groom) of Bray, and Haley Turner of Bray. The ring bearers were Andrew Potts (cousin of the bride) of Foster, and Devyn Gill (nephew of the groom) of Bray.
The best man was Chuck Turner of Bray. The groomsmen were Dylan Gill of Kansas, and Trey Mayes of Bray. Junior groomsman was Josh Goodrich (brother of the bride) of Foster. Ushers were Heath Maxwell (cousin of the bride) of Bray, and Robert Jensen (cousin of the groom) of Bray.
