Kathleen and Tyson in Peoria, IL

The bride and groom met in 2006 through a mutual pal. "Our friend Brittney boldly introduced us to each other as 'your future husband, Tyson' and 'your future wife, Kathleen,'" remembers the bride. "It was embarrassing initially, but it's so funny how things worked out." Kathleen wore a satin trumpet-style gown by Kenneth Pool, purchased from Ultimate Bride. "Once I tried it on, I could tell from the look on my mom's and sisters' faces that it was 'the one,'" says Kathleen. "And it only took one day to find it."
