Merrick Lee Coe and Blake Andrew Fitzgerald were united in marriage July 7, 2012 on the ridgetop at Chalk Hill Winery in Healdsburg, California. Father Richard Stansberry officiated the ceremony. Following a cocktail reception, guests enjoyed a seated dinner and dancing. Merrick is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ross Merrick Coe. She is the granddaughter of Elizabeth Merrick Coe and the late Charles Robert Coe, Lee Wagoner Gaynier and the late William M. Gaynier.

Blake is the son of Patricia Ann Anderson and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip D. Fitzgerald. He is the grandson of Betty Fitzgerald and the late Glen Fitzgerald, Arda McGuire and the late Mickey McGuire.

Given in marriage by her father, the Bride wore an elegant blush strapless gown by designer Vera Wang. The ball gown was created with a draped corset bodice, a slight drop waist, pleated tulle, and soft cascades of floating organza petals. The two-toned petals were placed asymmetrically on the gown sweeping down the back into a beautiful dramatic train. Completing her bridal look, Merrick wore a raw edged veil made of gold tulle.

The Bride's attendants were Brooke Elizabeth Coe, Hallie Nicole Hill, Barbara Elizabeth Kierl, Kelli Marie Petree, Erielle Roodman Reshef, Lauren Belle Thompson, Elizabeth Ramsey Thompson, Kylie Marie Walker, and vocalist Jordan Kate Ballard. The scriptural readings were by Rachel Elaine Luetkemeyer and Meg McCurdy Miller.

Dr. Bradley Keith Lamprich served as Best Man. The Groom's other attendants were Ryan William Coe, Adam Alexander Fitzgerald, Brandon Todd Fitzgerald, Kyle James Fitzgerald, and Kyle Gene McElvaney.

Following a recent honeymoon to Gstaad, Switzerland and Paris, France the couple have made their home in Oklahoma City.
