Bethany Pennock, of Shepherdstown, and Kyle Lucas, of Boone, Iowa, were united in marriage on Saturday at Grace Baptist Church. The wedding was officiated by Joe Burwell.
Andrew McKnight sang his song, “Alchemy,” while the unity candle was lit, and Andie Mattes played Pachelbel’s Canon in D for the processional.
The maid of honor was Lizzie Albert, of Cleveland, Ohio. Albert and the bride met at their college orientation and have been best friends since. The groomsmen were the bride’s brothers, Matthew and Philip, who stood in for the best man, who could not attend.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the service was limited to immediate family only. A full service with the renewal of vows is being planned for next year at Wild Goose Farm.
