Flower girl was the couple’s 3-year-old daughter, Jocelyn Ann Marie Gallagher. Ringbearer was their 5-year-old son, Gaige St. Andrew Gallagher, who became people-shy and was replaced by the bride’s niece, Hannah King.

A reception was hosted by the newlyweds’ families at their South Lake Tahoe home following the ceremony. The couple took a one-week wedding trip to Fire Island, N.Y.

Both the bride and bridegroom are graduates of Chautauqua High School in Big Bear Lake, Calif. The bride is a homemaker and the bridegroom is self-employed with Custom Remodels and Floors.
