Afternoon Delight – Katie & Kurt

Oglebay Resort is a massive lodge set on top of a mountain in Wheeling, WV. It’s a popular vacation spot in West Virginia, which means there is tons of vacancy for guests. Katie, Kurt, and their attendees spent the day in the resort’s suites getting ready for the day. There was not a cloud in sight. The sun was shining. The ladies traded blush and lavender robes for gowns. The guys dressed in grey tuxes. As the flowers arrived, everyone began to line up for the ceremony.

Katie and Kurt were married in an afternoon ceremony. The sun shined brightly upon the promenade. White chairs lined the space. Fans imprinted with the day’s program were offered to guests. Signage announced an “unplugged ceremony,” reinforced by the officiant. Katie’s father escorted her toward Kurt, who was overcome with emotion at his approaching bride. The two exchanged vows and rings in front of their beloved friends and family. It all ended with a kiss!

As fate would have it, Kurt’s father is a DJ. He did a fantastic job hosting the reception. The bridal party was introduced and participants danced their way to the head table. Dinner was served before numerous bridal games were played. Toasts were delivered and the couple shared in their first dance. Rain was not in the forecast, however there was a light sprinkle during party time. Just enough for a little wedding day luck!
