Westglow weddings are always magical. Few things compare to saying wedding vows overlooking sweeping views of John’s River Gorge or Grandfather Mountain, but every now and then a wedding comes along that means a little bit more to our property.
Westglow’s Graphic Designer Josh Floyd married his longtime sweetheart last Sunday on our Courtyard. Anna Jaquays, now Floyd, grew up around Westglow. Her first job was working as a receptionist in Westglow’s salon. Being Bonnie and Jamie Schaefer’s niece, Anna sees the property as being an extension of her home and the staff here as part of her family.
Married six years from the day they started dating, Anna and Josh knew the beginning of September would be an ideal time for an outdoor mountain wedding. The weather on the 4th didn’t disappoint, the couple was graced with sunny, 75 degree weather for their big day. Family and friends gathered under an expansive tent to celebrate Anna and Josh’s love and everything the perfect day had to offer.
Because the couple holds Westglow so close to their hearts, the entire property was swept away in the excitement of the wedding. Some of us were able to attend the lavish reception and ceremony, while others, such as Event Coordinator Jennifer Williams and Restaurant Manager Gary Brown, poured their hearts into planning and executing the event to perfection.
Truly, every wedding at Westglow receives absolute attention to detail and commitment. However, Anna and Josh helped remind the entire property of the elegance and excitement behind Westglow events. It is rare that our staff gets the opportunity to see our amazing property from the perspective of a guest. So, in addition to everything else, the day reminded us all of Westglow’s timeless appeal.
The wedding featured a variety of local vendors including flowers by Fuschia Moss, Hallmark Cakes, and Fletcher & Fletcher Photography. The pictures above are from Fletcher and Fletcher! Click here to visit their website and view contact information.
