Couple married in Joshua Tree, Calif.

USMC Sgt. Dane Steven Wetterer and Chelsey Rae Shier were married by the military chaplain Aug. 3 at Joshua Tree, Calif., just outside Palm Springs, Calif.

The couple met at Palm Springs when Wetterer was based for four years in the United States Marine Corps at TwentyNine Palms, Calif. He re-enlisted this year and is now a sergeant and infantry instructor at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, Calif., where the newlyweds are purchasing a home off-base.

The bride was born at Seattle, Wash., to Marlin Shier and Patricia Ferguson. She graduated from Interlake High School and Central Washington University College, both in Washington. She is a medical assistant in Palm Springs and is relocating to a job in San Diego.

The bridegroom was born in Carson City, Nev., to Katie Rossell of Stateline, Nev., and Steve Wetterer of South Lake Tahoe. He graduated from George Whittell High School and joined the Marine Corps in 1997. He will graduate from the Marine Corps in four years with a college degree. The couple would like to relocate and make Lake Tahoe their home some day, where the bridegroom will pursue law enforcement or investigation.

The couple will return to Stateline this month to join family members for a reunion. They will be joining, among others, stepfather, Joey Rossell of Stateline; brother-in-law, Sky Wetterer, a former Marine; sister-in-law, Chandelle Wetterer of Stateline; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Roach, who are coming from their home in Maui, Hawaii; and relatives from Seattle.
