Kathleen "KT" Hayes Peters and Steve L. Luebbe of Omaha, Neb., were married on June 11, 2010 in an evening ceremony on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Father Pedro Morales officiated the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Patricia Burke-Peters and Bob Peters of Old Town Kenai. She is a 2001 graduate of Kenai Central High School. She graduated with high distinction from the University Honors Program at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in business administration. She earned a master's of education degree in curriculum and instruction from Doane College in 2009, and is on track to complete a master's degree in organizational management from Peru State College in 2011. She is employed as a business and technology teacher at La Vista South High School in Papillion, Neb.
Kathleen wore a full-length classic white crepe gown decorated with a jeweled broach with a veil. The bride's bouquet was a hand-tied bouquet of roses, lilies, gerbera daisies and shastas.
The groom is the son of Bonnie Luebbe and the late William Luebbe of Lincoln, Neb. He is a 2000 graduate of Shelton High School, and earned a degree in computer programming from South Eastern Community College in Milfred, Neb., in 2002. He is employed by Linoma Software in Ashland, Neb.
The bride chose to include all close friends who attended the ceremony by asking ladies to wear blue and gentlemen to wear beige and white to signify the inclusion of all in their special day. The ceremony included a blending of sand from the Kenai beach, the beach at Puerto Vallarta and the lakeside site of the couple's future home in Ashland, Neb. The couple's brothers, Matthew Peters and Shawn Luebbe, signed the wedding certificate.
The reception took place on the veranda of the Riu Palace Pacifico and featured local seafood and a special presentation of baked Alaska. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cappuccino, white and carrot wedding cake.
Special guests from Alaska, who enjoyed five days of activities in Puerto Vallarta, included Becca Adams, Ashleigh Farris, Dan McKeirnan and Emery Thibodeau, Sheila Burke, and Erinn and Brennan Scotland.
The couple honeymooned at the Riu Palace Pacifico and explored Puerto Vallarta and Mexico for seven days after wedding guests departed. They will continue to live in Omaha until construction of their new home in Ashland is completed.
