WV Weddings Fall Winter 2020

“We’d even asked her the night before how everything was going. She’d responded ‘good.’ So, we thought all was well. It was quite a frustrating experience, but the North Beach crew got right on it and provided a cake that was perfect,” Karli says. The couple enjoyed the evening, with family and friends dancing to a diverse selection of music hand-picked by the couple. They dined on a buffet-style meal that included pastas, a mac ’n’ cheese bar, prime rib and mashed potatoes, and Southern favorites like barbecue, catfish, and collard greens. Sweets were covered, too. Beyond the three-tiered, last-minute wedding cake, they included a Philadelphia Eagles groom’s cake, a chocolate fountain with a variety of dippers, and a sweets bar with cupcakes, cookies, macarons, and mini-cheesecakes. The night came to a close with a group rendition of “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” Guests formed a tunnel and delivered a festive sparkler send-off for Karli and Tommy. The couple departed the reception in a white trolley and spent their wedding night at the resort. Following the couple’s departure, guests were treated to late- night snacks of fresh bagels and pastries, personalized M&Ms, and pink salt water taffy. After the wedding, Karli and Tommy traveled south to Destin, Florida, for a three-night mini-honeymoon at The Henderson before returning home. Tommy is still stationed in Omaha, Nebraska, and Karli is finishing up her master’s degree in business administration at the University of Charleston. Tommy plans to retire from the Air Force in March, and Karli is currently applying to medical schools. The couple will decide where they will make their shared home one day soon.

Tommy arrived at the ceremony in a vintage Rolls Royce, while Karli was delivered for the vow exchange in a

sleek white limousine. The ceremony and reception both took place on the grounds of North Beach Resort and Villas.
