When it came time to plan their special day, Joelle Cook and Justin Cameron knew exactly where they wanted to host their nuptials: Destiny Hill Farm. Justin’s family owns the lavender, berry, and flower farm, which also serves as an indoor and outdoor wedding venue. “We wanted an outdoor venue, and Destiny Hill Farm is a gorgeous wedding venue,” Joelle says. “We would have wanted to get married there even without the family connection.” Joelle looked stunning on the big day in a lace, mermaid-style gown with beautiful beading and embellishments along the sweetheart neckline. Her train glided behind her as she walked down the aisle to the love of her life at their outdoor ceremony. After saying “I do” beneath the space’s signature green pergola, which was adorned with a floral garland, the couple celebrated with 200 loved ones in the Show Barn. Joelle’s favorite color, teal, bedecked the reception space, along with stunning arrangements of white and pink florals with pops of greenery. Nancy Cameron, Justin’s mother and Destiny Hill Farm’s owner/florist, perfected the couple’s vision for the centerpieces and bouquets. “Nancy and her floral team are incredible,” Joelle says. “It all came together better than we could have imaged.” The couple shared more beautiful moments throughout the day, including Justin surprising Joelle by displaying photos of their families at the reception and the couple’s first dance to “Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett. “The whole day, really, was fantastic.”

“Justin’s dad built the beautiful archway, and the floral team made a canopy on top,” Joelle says. “I was completely blown away.”

Joelle’s nieces and best friends stood by her side as the flower girls and bridesmaids, respectively, in gorgeous teal dresses

The adventurous couple got engaged while boating on Cheat Lake. When the boat came around to pick up Joelle, who had been surfing the waves behind it, she saw Justin on one knee with a ring!
