    Y’all Means ALL: A WV Farm Wedding // Rob & Mike

    There was lots of love to go around at this intimate WV farm wedding.

    When Rob and Mike first reached out to us, they asked us to be part of “Greenville, WV’s gay event of the year.” Note: Greenville has less than 500 residents, so this was likely Greenville’s ONLY gay event of the year. And you know we weren’t about to miss that!

    We love WV farm weddings, but this one was extra special. The wedding took place at Rob’s family farm, which has been part of southern West Virginia since 1798. Their ceremony was held in a tiny church located on the farm (built in 1912).

    But it gets even better. Rob and Mike have been together for – wait for it – 21 years (!!) and decided to tie the knot in the place where Rob grew up. Their wonderful teenage son was a big part of the day, performing a reading at the ceremony and giving a toast during the reception.

    Bluegrass musician Sam Gleaves (and friends) provided the tunes for both the ceremony and the square dancing reception. Rob and Mike both hopped on stage to show off their skills with fiddles during the party. And though we’ve seen goats at plenty of WV farm weddings, this was the first time we’ve seen a goat milking station as an activity for kids!

    This was one of the most memorable weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of documenting.

    To document a couple who’d been together for decades was a beautiful and emotional experience. We’ll never forget the bluegrass band’s rendition of “You are my Sunshine” prior to the ceremony, when all the wedding guests sang along before watching this happy couple finally make it official.

    The weather was perfect, the tunes were lively, and the crowd was so happy and full of love. We don’t know how many more “gay events of the year” Greenville, WV will have, but we hope we can be around for more!
