Casey Danielle Martin became the bride of Christopher Michael Jebelian of South Bend, Ind., in a ceremony taking place at Falcon Rest Mansion on Aug. 30.
The 6 p.m. sunset nuptials were exchanged in the garden gazebo, with Anthony Campbell officiating.
The bride is the daughter of Brenda and Dennis Waggoner, and Sydney and Paulette Martin of Rock Island. She is the granddaughter of the late Fred and Lucille Fuqua, and Thelma and the late Rayburn Martin of Van Buren County.
Mr. Jebelian is the son of Kenny and Susan Jebelian of South Bend. His grandparents are Barbara and the late Ken Jebelian Sr. of Arizona, Ralph and the late Maryian Frick of South Bend.
Guest register attendants were Addy Judkins and Gracie Hill. They provided guests with white fans from a table holding a white bird cage decorated with white tulle and red roses. A basket filled with red and white wooden hearts were placed on the table for guests to sign.
The mansion’s gazebo was decorated with white tulle and white wisteria. The entrance featured white wrought iron tables holding two large ferns. Another table held the unity candle decorated with red roses. The 75 guests were seated in chairs embellished with white tulle, black feathers, red roses with a faux diamond center and black and white ribbon.
The bride was resplendent in a strapless ivory satin gown with a sweetheart neckline. The waistline was enhanced with sequins, pearls and crystals. A sheer overlay extended to a chapel-length train adorned with sequins and lace appliques. The train featured a scalloped edge. She carried red roses with acrylic diamond centers, black feathers and tied with crystal ribbon.
Ashley Waggoner Chevez served her friend as matron of honor. Shana Watson, the bride’s cousin, was the maid of honor. They were attired in ivory dresses with black lace overlay. The strapless, floor-length models were accented with red ribbon at the waistline. They also carried red rose bouquets tied with black ribbon. 
Eric Molnar of Illinois was the best man. Les Frey of Texas was the groomsmen, with the bride’s cousin Brock Watson the wedding usher.
A reception was held in the couple’s honor in the carriage house, and hosted by the bride’s parents. Assorted finger foods were enjoyed by guests as musical selections were provided by a disc jockey. Servers included Jaime Judkins, Brooke Hale and Wanda Wright.
 Tables were covered in white tablecloths with black doilies in the center. Glass vases filled with water bubbles, red roses and baby’s breath served as centerpieces. Crystal pieces were sprinkled on the doilies.
A three-tiered white wedding cake was embellished with black scroll work, red roses and rhinestone ribbon. It was topped with custom designed “Mr. and Mrs. Jebelian” topper, and was displayed on a white cake stand surrounded with ivy and pearls. Punch was served from a silver punch bowl.
The newlyweds left their reception under a pathway of sparklers into an awaiting 1951 Rolls Royce.
The new Mrs. Jebelian is a 2006 graduate of Warren County High School. Her husband graduated from Riley High School, and is employed with Window World. They honeymooned in Portland, Ore., and are making their home in South Bend.
