Surrounded the West Virginia countryside, Haley and Jon tied the knot with a farm wedding surrounded by spacious landscape and a rustic red barn.
“Haley and Jon decided to do a first look and I am one of the few photographers that does not actively advocate for a first look, mainly because family tends to end up late and people aren't usually ready for photos before the wedding,” shared Jasmine White, the couple's wedding photographer. “However, Haley and Jon's family were all there, dressed, and we did every single must-have photo before they even said their ‘I do's.'”
Haley and Jon's wedding party wore navy blue, with the bridesmaids and flower girl in matching strapless gowns matching the groomsmen's ties and vests.
A little rain didn't hold the couple back from a fabulous celebration, using the day's weather to their advantage and posing with an umbrella for a few of their wedding photos.
Guests were welcomed with a handlettered sign telling them to choose whatever seat they'd like to enjoy the ceremony.
Jon and Haley exchanged handwritten vows under a wooden arch decorated with white and yellow roses and looking out over the rolling country hills as their son watched on in the arms of a groomsman.
Having taken all their photos prior to the ceremony, the newlyweds were left with more time to enjoy their wedding reception. Wooden signs decorated the indoor reception space, directing guests to sign the guest book and drop off cards.
Guests enjoyed an “I Do BBQ” with a buffet menu filled with pulled pork, BBQ chicken, mac and cheese, potato salad, collard greens, corn bread and coleslaw. For dessert, the newlyweds cut into a single tier cake decorated like a spliced log and topped with bride and groom cake toppers. Cupcakes satin wooden crates stacked up around the cake on display.
Drapery and twinkle lights hung scalloped from the ceiling of the barn to set the decorative vibe as Haley shared a dance with her father and then spent the night tearing up the floor with their guests.
