Adam Thomas and Paige Gehling
Paige Gehling, the daughter of Brent and Janis Gehling, grew up in the town of Roselle, Iowa, 10 miles southwest of Carroll, and she has been living and working in Cherokee for the last three years, following a brief period as a student at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. While she was at BVU, her roommate introduced her to her boyfriend Andy Thomas' brother, Adam. After going through a year or two of playfully "picking on" each other over the phone, Paige and Adam entered into the next phase of their relationship - having some genuine conversations. This, in turn, led to their discovering mutual interests, and six months later, Paige and Adam had their first actual date.

Many of the couple's subsequent outings have involved outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking and river rafting - but they have an upcoming date which involves an indoor activity. Paige and Adam, the son of Craig and Julie Thomas of Cherokee, will be married at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday September 22, 2012 at the Roselle Holy Angels church, which Paige attended when she was growing up.

Adam, who is employed at R.J. Thomas Manufacturing in Cherokee, will have five groomsmen at the wedding and Paige will have five bridesmaids and three personal attendants. Brad Morgan will be the soloist, and there will be four ushers. The colors of the wedding will be kiwi and plum and the flowers will be handled by a professional floral designer - Paige. She has been working as a floral designer at Rhoadside Blooming House in Cherokee for three years, and for her own wedding she has chosen sunflowers and purple gladiolas. The wedding and reception will have an antique/country theme, and this theme will be emphasized by such items as antique cream can planters at the church and wood items and burlap at the reception, which will be held at the German Hausbarn in Manning.

Following the reception and dance, Paige and Adam will honeymoon on Lake Michigan, and they hope to catch a Green Bay Packer game on the way home.
