Surrounded by family, their church Hazel Dell Friends Meeting, and friends, Mr. Gary Riley and Mrs. (Linda Combs) Riley gave their daughter, Megan Riley, to be wed to Keenan Bates, son of Lawrence Bates, Kokomo.
On Saturday, June 1, 2019, God's blessing upheld Keenan and Megan's faith as the outdoor ceremony proved to be hosted by a beautifully sunny day as Pastor Dave Freelan officiated the union in Greentown.
Keenan was attended by his father and best man, Lawrence, and Megan by her matron of honor and mother, Linda, who was also accompanied by Keenan and Megan's daughter, Riley Joy. Feather girls included Keenan and Megan's daughter, Harper, and niece, Skylar Riley.
Megan graduated from Eastern High School, Greentown, Indiana, while Keenan was a student of Kokomo High School, Kokomo, Indiana. Megan is a 2013 graduate of Ball State University, with a bachelor of science in psychological science and will be obtaining her master's. Keenan is currently enrolled at Ivy Tech, completing his associate of applied science in industrial technology.
Mr. and Mrs. Bates will be residing in Howard County.
