Parents of the couple are Brad and Mary Jo Hock of Culbertson, Linda Robinson of Lincoln and Steve and Mary K. Deger of Fairbury.

Grandmother of the bride is Mary Colling of McCook.

The bride wore a drop-waist white gown, the bodice covered in Chantilly lace and encased with pearls and silver sequins. She wore a cathedral length veil with a ruffle on the edge to match the ruffles that encompassed and comprised her skirt and train. She carried a bouquet of white roses accented by her crystalline rosary, a gift from her mother which was purchased and blessed by Pope Benedict XVI of Rome, Italy.

The matron of honor was Lynette Smith of Omaha, sister of the bride. Bridesmaids were Marianne and Sharlene Hock of Lincoln, sisters of the bride, Alesia Hock of Culbertson, sister of the bride and Cheryl Houck of Topeka, Kan. They wore floor length gowns of grape satin. They carried bouquets of pink, raspberry, lavender, soft yellow, grape and soft blue spring flowers.

The bridegroom wore a Calvin Klein tuxedo with a white vest and bowtie. He had a single white rose pinned to his lapel.

The best man was Michael Deger, brother of the bridegroom of Lincoln. Bridegroomsmen were Jacob Betting, Magnum Fogelstrom and John Kirk, all of Omaha and Shawn Hock of Fort Collins, Colo., brother of the bride. They wore black tuxedos with grape vests and bowties with matching boutonnieres.

The flower girl was Josie DeVries of Castle Rock, Colo., cousin of the bride. She carried a flower basket with hand sewn beads on the lace and wore a white dress with a light blue iridescent six layer skirt and satin bow which tied in the front, which was made by the mother of the bride.

The ring bearer was Nick DeVries of Castle Rock, Colo., cousin of the bride. He wore a matching bridegroomsmen tuxedo and carried a ring pillow covered in lace from the mother of the bride's wedding gown.

Music was played by Cheryl Christner on the harp, Jonathan Christner the cello and LeAnn Miller of McCook on the violin. Ellen Soukup of Lincoln played the piano and was the soloist.

A reception followed the ceremony at the McCook City Auditorium.

The couple are making their home in McCook.
