Jill Justice, the daughter of Jim and Cathy Justice of Lewisburg, and Adam Long, the son of Charlie and Jo Long of Frankford, were married in a beautiful ceremony in The Greenbrier Chapel on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015 at 5:30 p.m.
The couple married in the recently completed Greenbrier Chapel, nestled on the grounds of The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs. The chapel’s spectacular stained-glass windows were designed by Carleton Varney, the legendary long-time interior decorator of The Greenbrier.
The classic white wood and stone chapel, which can seat up to 500 guests, features a spectacular copper roof and steeple and colorful stained glass windows, which evoke the alluring landscapes of West Virginia. The rustic elegant interior of The Greenbrier Chapel features exposed wood-beam ceilings adorned with 10 custom chandeliers, checkerboard stained-wood floors, a wrap-around balcony and carved wood pews.
The couple exited The Greenbrier Chapel as three antique church bells from 1924 rang in celebration. A reception, featuring numerous heartfelt toasts, was highlighted by surprise singer Lionel Richie’s stirring performance in a magnificent tent in Founders Park, located in the heart of The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier. Party on the Moon and the Fabulous Equinox Band provided additional musical entertainment during the cocktail hour and reception.
The bride wore a gown by Tony Ward and shoes by Jimmy Choo. Bridesmaids wore dresses from J. Crew with BHLDN toppers. The groom and groomsmen wore custom tuxedos by Larry Davidson of Roanoke with bow ties by Brackish. Gillespie’s Flowers and Productions provided the floral and event design.
