WV Weddings Fall Winter 2020



chris and bekkah were high school sweethearts who grew up together in madison. He decided the time was right to propose in the fall of 2017 when the couple was visiting friends in St. Louis, Missouri. The couple chose the Benedict Haid Farms in Clendenin for the backdrop of a wedding day that the bride says felt carefree and almost effortless. Parents of the bride and the wedding party ascended the aisle to an instrumental version of The Beatles’ hit “Here Comes the Sun” and a piano version of Lady Gaga’s ballad “Shallow.” Bekkah was escorted down the aisle by her father and wore a wedding dress with a detailed top and chiffon bottom. Her veil was more than 30 years old and was the same one that her mother had worn to marry her dad. Her attendants wore various styles of long and flowing gowns to match their personalities. The groom wore a slim-fitted navy blue suit and kept his groomsmen’s attire simple with matching navy blue slacks, white button-up shirts, and navy blue suspenders. A lively reception followed the exchange of traditional vows and a sand mixing ceremony. There were speeches, toasts, music, and dancing until the couple joined friends and family for a “Take Me Home, Country Roads” sing-along to end the evening. Guests were treated to packets of wildflower seeds as wedding favors so they could take a piece of the special day with them and watch it grow. The couple left the next morning for a honeymoon in Cancun, Mexico, after which they returned home to Hurricane. Bekkah works there as a psychiatry resident physician at CAMC and Chris works as a general laborer.
