Natasha Janel Scott & Evan Blake Boyd | 9.1.18 | Bridgeport
Natasha and Evan met at Marshall University, where they were both completing graduate degrees—hers in speech pathology and his in statistics. After graduation, Evan, a native of Ashland, Kentucky, accepted a job with the U.S. Census Bureau near Washington, D.C. They moved to the Eastern Panhandle, where Natasha had grown up in Falling Waters. After a surprise marriage proposal with the help of their dog, Lula, on the beach at Outer Banks, North Carolina, the couple contemplated the wedding venue.
Since most of Evan’s family is from Kentucky, they chose The Bridgeport Conference Center, a midpoint for both families that conveniently included an on-site hotel. Thankfully, the weather cooperated, and the ceremony took place outside under gorgeous blue skies on the first day of September. Beautiful music on the guitar and fiddle was provided by Key to Adam.
The bride wore an Allure gown, with complementary shades of blush and champagne worn by the bridesmaids. The floral arrangements by Perennial Floral featured succulents, greenery, and cream roses. The groom’s and bride’s mothers read poems during the ceremony, and the groom’s two nieces served as flower girls. The reception inside the conference center started with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.
Guests then dined on a buffet-style meal prepared by the conference center. The venue’s pastry chef prepared the cake, also adorned with succulents in keeping with the floral theme of the occasion. The couple had their first dance to the Dave Matthews Band song “Here On Out.” Music was provided by Funomenon Entertainment, and the evening ended with a taco bar and a sparkler send-off. After a honeymoon in Hawaii, the couple is residing in Ranson, where Natasha works as a speech/language pathologist and Evan continues his work with the U.S. Census Bureau.
