A Natural, Asian-Inspired Wedding at New River Gorge in Lansing, West Virginia

Since Lane Litz (29 and in education technology management) and Cameron Frecklington (34 and a journalist) met in China, they wanted to pay tribute to the place where their love story began. "We went for something original that reflected our story as a couple," Lane says. "Black and metals with some jewel tones were our wedding colors, and we threw in some Asian elements." The Asian-inspired wedding took place throughout the New River Gorge property in Lansing, West Virginia, starting with the ceremony on the wooden deck. Guests found bright red and black fans on their seats that faced Lane and Cameron as they got married, with an elevated view of the natural woodland behind them. White escort cards had bright red and yellow designs that depicted zodiac animals, with numbers that matched tables draped with white and black runners depicting Chinese characters. Our favorite detail had to be Lane's modern white wedding dress—created in China—paired with a black belt that had a gold metallic center.
