Rachael Ann Rudeen and Jeff Klos were married June 12 at The Cathedral of Saint Paul in St. Paul, Minn. A reception followed at the James J. Hill Reference Library.

Parents of the couple are Linda and Gary Rudeen, Cottage Grove, Minn. and Linda and Tom Klos, Oklahoma City.

The bride wore a satin strapless dress with a bow in the back and a sash at the waist and she carried a bouquet of white orchids.

Matron of honor was Katie Dake and bridesmaids were Caitlin Browning, Jean Chalifoux, Allison Eagan, Keri Fee and Jennifer Klos. They wore black silk shantung dresses and carried blue, green and yellow flowers.

Patrick Garrett was best man and the groomsmen included Chris Barkley, Matthew Eagan, Blair Naifeh, Corey Mood and Jason Rudeen. Ushers were Drew Cook and Michael Tarwater. They wore yellow silk bowties.

The reception was in the three story library where place cards for the guests were in the shape of library return cards. The cards also had the name of a classic love story book which was placed on each table so guest could find their seats.

Cupcakes set on tiers were the wedding cakes. Music was by Metro Jam.

The bride’s family serenaded the couple with a performance of “Oklahoma” and they wore cowboy hats for the song.

The groom’ parents hosted a dinner on the night before the wedding on the Paradise Charter River Cruise Boat. Nautical-themed decorations were on the boat and party favors were Swedish Fish candles personalized with the phrase “You’re a Reel Catch.”
