As a personal thrill, the room was adorned with Swifties, adding an extra layer of excitement.

To conclude the festivities that brought everyone together in West Virginia, there was only one fitting choice: a massive sing-along to John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” The dance floor brimmed with the happy couple’s favorite people, clearly elated to share in such a magical day. As the celebration transitioned to the after-party, it was evident that Angela and John had gifted everyone an extraordinary day that would linger in their memories for years to come.
