Rory Feek’s Daughter, Hopie, Marries Her Love, Wendy, at the Family Farm
The family farm in which Joey Feek lived out her final days proved to be the perfect setting for a wedding. Joey + Rory singer Rory Feek's daughter, Hopie, said "I do" to her love, Wendy, on Oct. 27.
"What a beautiful and perfect day that was," recalls Hopie's sister, Heidi, who shared a number of pics from the ceremony on her Instagram page. "I’m SO HAPPY for Hopie and Wendy!"
Captured by Malatai Photo, the wedding images show Hopie in a floor-length wedding gown and her bridesmaids all in burnt orange dresses, each holding an array of fall flowers. In contrast, Wendy's wedding party wore white shirts and red bowties.
Of course, proud dad Rory wore his signature denim overalls.
Heidi also shared a precious picture of with little Indiana Feek on Hopie's big day. Indy — who is Joey Feek's daughter with Rory — served as a flower girl during the ceremony and donned pigtails for the event.
Rory previously admitted that learning that his daughter is gay was challenging. Hopie shared the news with her father shortly after Joey died in 2016, and it challenged his faith even further during an already dark tie.
"And my first reaction, honestly, was I don’t think so," Feek says in an interview captured this year. But he began to wonder, "Am I supposed to shun my child now and say, ‘No, you can’t be in my life until you come around to thinking like I’m thinking?' The only thing I try to keep in mind is, it’s her life, it’s her choice, it’s her faith, and my job is to love her even when it’s hard."
And that's just what he has done, choosing love over everything else. He even offered to host the wedding at the family's farm.
