Jennifer Michelle and David Allan were united in marriage at the Zion Lutheran Church, rural Storm Lake, on December 31, 2001. Pastor Tom Egger officiated the ceremony.

The bride was escorted down the isle by her father. Jennifer wore a matte satin gown, an original design by Mon Cheri. The tank style bodice was complimented by a sweetheart neckline. The bodice was adorned with an elegant alencon lace pattern; detailed with pearls and sequins. The bodice flowed into a simple satin aline skirt. The hem of the skirt was embellished with the coordinating alencon lace pattern. The V back was detailed with satin covered buttons. The gown was complete with a chapel length train. The tiara style headpiece coordinated with the pearls and sequins in her dress, and was completed with a detachable unfinished veil. She carried a cluster of ivory roses that were tied and draped with a beautiful shear ribbon with pearls, designed by her Aunt Janet Meyer.

Michelle Sack (best friend of the bride) served as matron of honor, and Jill Carlson (sister of the bride) served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids included Angie Gillespie (cousin of the bride), Pam Reddel, and Ann Langholdt (both sisters of the groom). The ladies were dressed in T-Length black dresses.

The soloist was Elizabeth Gries (friend of the couple) who sang "I Will be Here" and "There Is Love". The groom also sang "The Lord's Prayer", as a special surprise to the bride. The recessional was Bach's "Jesu Joy of Man's Desire".
