Victoria Louise Binegar of St. Marys, W.Va., and Nathan “Barney” Booth of Newport, Ohio, were united in marriage in a hilltop ceremony by Lloyd Westbrook, evangelist for the Newport Church of Christ.
The bride is the daughter of Johnny and Connie Binegar of St. Marys. She is the granddaughter of Sandra and the late Lyle Binegar of St. Marys, and Gary and Pat Nichols of Newport.
The groom is the son of Donnie and Karen Booth of New Matamoras, Ohio. He is the grandson of Dean and Donna Booth Sr. of Newport and Ronnie and Wilda Eddy of Fleming, Ohio, and Shirley Eddy of New Matamoras.
Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father and his dog Leroy, the bride wore a silk dupioni and chiffon ball gown with draped waist, chapel-length train, gathered bodice and a crystal belt. She carried a hand-tied bouquet of orange and yellow sunflowers, celosia, wax flower and turkey feathers.
The maid of honor was the bride’s sister, Olivia Binegar. Bridesmaids were Chelsea Binegar and Jessie Hager. They each wore fall-colored dresses with cowboy boots. They carried bouquets of hand-tied orange and yellow sunflowers, celosia, gerbera daisies, wax flower and turkey feathers.
The best man was Donnie Booth Jr. of New Matamoras, Ohio. Groomsmen were Ashley Carr of Newport, Ohio, and Caleb Enright of Arvilla, W.Va. The groom and his attendants all wore black western tuxedo jackets, vests and ties to match the bridesmaid dresses, blue jeans, cowboy boots and a boutonniere of gerbera daisy, hypericum berries and turkey feathers.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen were each accompanied down the aisle by one of the Binegar family dogs, Mabelene, Maggie, Lew-Lew, Cooper, Jethro and Ike. They each wore colors matching their escorts.
Guests were given hayrides to the ceremony site by the bride’s uncle, James Binegar, with hay bale seats and decorations including mums, black-eyed Susan vines, scaevola, pumpkins and cornstalks.
The ceremony music was provided by Brandon Elliott of Parkersburg. The bridal party entered to the song “The Wind” by Zac Brown Band, the bride entered to “Going to the Chapel” by The Shirelles, and exited to the song, “Welcome to the Family” by Little Big Town.
The reception was held in the barn, where the ceiling was draped with multi-colored materials to look like a patchwork quilt. The walls were lined with old quilts that were created by different generations of the couple’s families, and all of the dinnerware, chairs and silverware were mismatched.
The bride’s uncle and aunt, Shane and Stacy Binegar grilled hot dogs and Angus burgers for the reception. The groom’s grandfather, Dean Booth Sr. provided a special recipe of baked beans. Sheri Nichols of St. Marys provided pasta salad and Joe and Nancy Riggs of Marietta provided pumpkin pies. Food was served by the couple’s aunts Vicki, Kathy, Sandra and Stacy, and friend of the bride and groom, Debbie Davis.
Donnie Booth, father of the groom, compiled a CD of the couple’s favorite songs that played during the reception. The bride’s aunt, Vickie Binegar, and cousin, Chelsea Binegar, prepared cups of candy corn and peanuts wrapped in sheer netting and tied with tags with the newlyweds’ names and wedding date for guests to take home.
After a honeymoon to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., the couple reside in Newport.
