Friends and family gathered to Temple Square on April 26, as Madelyn Welch, daughter of Barry and Lori Friede Welch of Cody, and Kaden Michael Moore, son of Michael and Amy Burton Moore of Powell, were joined in holy matrimony in the Salt Lake Temple.
The bride wore a stunning Bohemian gown with bell sleeves, an intricate, 3-foot ecru lace train, and full-length veil. Her bridal attendants — including sisters Erin Hughes, Sarah Welch, Megan Welch, Riley Welch, and Kenly Moore — wore floor-length dresses of forest green and carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet of white veronica, lamb’s ear, diamond eucalyptus, bay leaf, white peonies and white garden roses hand tied with white muslin and crocheted lace.The groomsmen, sporting tan leather bow ties, included brothers Spencer Hughes, Derek Welch, and Tanner Moore. Other attendants were close friends, including Ashley Christensen and Hannah Bailey of Cody, and former missionary companions of the couple.
The bride and groom were honored at a reception that evening at The White Shanty in Provo, Utah.
Maddie graduated in December 2016 from Cody High School where she participated in track and volleyball, and danced with the Cody Center for the Performing Arts prior to serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Independence, Missouri. Kaden is a 2016 graduate of Powell High School where he was a member of the basketball, football, golf and track teams. He served two years in the Guatemala City East mission.
The bride and groom, who completed their missionary service the same day, have made their first home in Rexburg as they continue their studies at BYU-Idaho.
