WV Weddings Spring Summer 2020



lindsey and clinton, both from summersville , dated briefly in high school and reunited five years later on Facebook while the bride was attending West Virginia University. He asked her on a first date, and the pair enjoyed a fun first evening together at Dave & Buster’s in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One summer day in 2018, Clinton enlisted the help of the pair’s Golden Retriever, Raiden and German Shepherd, Odin. One had a dog toy with the important question written on it, while the other had a ring tied around its neck. Lindsey accepted Clinton’s proposal, and they chose to have a summer wedding. The big event took place at Hawks Nest Lodge in Ansted— the ceremony at Overlook Park and the reception within the lodge. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her stepfather and wore a tulle A-line gown with a tank neckline and beaded lace bodice. Her mother’s bracelet as something borrowed and a cathedral-length veil completed her look. She carried a bouquet of artificial dark and light purple roses with accents of greenery and lace. The groom wore a white dress shirt with khaki dress pants and a purple silk tie. The couple exchanged traditional vows. One of their favorite moments from the day was when their three flower girls cried with happiness during the vow ceremony. A reception was held with family and friends with food and a three-tiered white wedding cake with ombre purple icing roses. Guests celebrated the end of the evening with a bubble send-off. Following a wedding trip to the Bahamas, Lindsey and Clinton returned to their home in Canvas, where she works as a substitute teacher and he works as a coal miner.
