Morrison - Hutchinson Nuptials

Posted April 17, 2002
Lynn Morrison and Chuck Hutchinson were married April 6 at Meadow Dream Farm, owned by Richard and Lisa Casdorph, in Nitro, W.Va. The barn was beautifully decorated with an elaborate arch under which the bride and groom said their vows. The nearly 100 guests were surrounded by the show horses in decorated stalls on either side of the aisle where guests were seated. Morrison was escorted down the aisle by her son, Meadow Dream trainer, Jimmy Morrison. Her daughter, Laura McDowell, was matron of honor. Steve Demjen, owner and trainer of Steve Demjen Stables at Memory Lane Farm, was best man. The evening ceremony was officiated by the Reverend Danny Fisher of South Ruffner Presbyterian Church. Michael Bowling, well-known horse show photographer, was in attendance to capture it all on film.

The couple was surprised with a gift of live music during the ceremony given by the McCune Family and a horse show friend. Georgia McCune is the bride-to-be of Morrison's son Jimmy. Stephen Moody, long-time friend of the couple, coordinated the wedding and reception which was held at the barn before the couple and their guests departed to a nearby hotel to celebrate the night away. An enormous white wedding cake and an incredible array of food was provided for guests to enjoy. Although Hutchinson's mother, Nancy Lee, 92, of Largo, Fla., was unable to make the journey to West Virginia, his brother David and wife Patty traveled from Roanoke, Va., to attend.

Morrison is a representative for Horse World Magazine, Shelbyville, Tenn., and Hutchinson is the sales representative and drives the mobile tack store for World Champion Horse Equipment also of Shelbyville.

After spending a few days with family and friends in West Virginia, the couple plans to attend the Tattersall's Spring Sale in Lexington, Ky.
