WV Weddings Spring Summer 2020



alex and jaredmet during their time atmorgantownhigh school. They dated for two years and decided to go their separate ways for college. They reignited their romance in 2015 and Alex moved home to Morgantown. Jared proposed on a Saturday in 2018. The couple was getting ready for a birthday lunch with friends and family. Alex had primped for two hours, Jared prodded her out of the bathroom and onto their balcony, where she found their golden retriever, Simon, wearing a sign that read: “Dad wants to know, yes or no?” Alex hugged Jared tightly and offered an emphatic yes. The couple chose Stonewall Resort as their venue, with an outdoor ceremony on the shores of Stonewall Lake. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her mother and wore an open-back lace dress with pearl bead accents. She carried a bouquet of blush and ivory-colored flowers with eucalyptus and olive leaf accents. The couple exchanged traditional vows before joining their guests for a waterfront reception under a white tent. The traditional father–daughter dance was a bit different, since Alex’s father passed away in 2011. She danced with her mother instead to the Queen song “You’re My Best Friend.” Guests dined on filet mignon and salmon with Boursin whipped potatoes and bourbon-glazed carrots. Everyone danced the night away to live music provided by the Jump Street Band. The guestbook included polaroids of guests in front of a flower wall provided by Brittany Anne’s Rentals. The wedding cake was a five-tiered creation with alternating almond and red velvet layers topped with white chocolate buttercream. Following the reception, the couple departed for their honeymoon in St. Lucia. They currently reside in Morgantown, where Alex works as a quality engineer and Jared as an HVAC technician.
