BRIDE’S PARENTS Karen & Robert Barton

GROOM’S PARENTS Angela Mordan & David Mordan


bridgeport natives korrie andderekmet in 2011 while attending Bridgeport High School. After high school, the couple moved to Morgantown, where both Korrie and Derek work as registered nurses. And in 2017, after a long day of clinicals, Derek popped the question. The couple was married at a historic battlefield site in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada. She wore a Stella York gown with a plunging neckline and V-back and a birdcage veil with rhinestones and ostrich feathers. Her father, escorted her down the aisle to Christina Perri’s “AThousand Years,” performed by a pianist and cellist. The couple exchanged personal vows before being cascaded by white and pink rose petals, and, in full fairy-tale style, riding off in a horse and carriage. Guests kicked off the reception with a cocktail hour on the covered patio of Queenston Heights Restaurant, and then the celebration continued inside, where the restaurant was decorated with white flowers, greenery, and floating candles. Resting on a “floating” glass table was the three-tiered red velvet wedding cake with cream cheese icing. The couple had their first dance to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” performed by the night’s entertainment, The Madhatters. Queenston Heights served a four-course meal and guests ended the evening with popcorn from the Mountaineer Popcorn Company and gathering around to sing to the beloved “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” The couple took a honeymoon to Sydney, Australia, and a cruise around the northern and southern coasts of New Zealand.
