The groom was attended by Patrick J. Doherty, River Falls, as bestman, and Joe Buonecore, River Falls, as groomsman. Gary and Shawn Doherty were the ushers.

Pianist Cheri Diers played the Processional. Morning Has Broken” was sung by the bride between the pledge and the exchange of rings. Tim Doherty sang “Aren’t They a Beautiful Pair.”
