Heterosexual marriages take place after numerous important decisions. In the case of non-hetero weddings, double the toil and drama. It's obvious that it was hard for Rory Feek to accept his daughter, Hopie's sexuality.
The idea of her relationship with the same gender was contradictory to Rory's Christian faith and beliefs. He only found out about it after his wife Joey's death. So, the 53 year-old singer was the sole parent to look after his dear daughter's life. The choice was between what he wants for her and what she wants above all else.
His initial instinct was to hold on to the rope of his anti-gay conservative beliefs. But, he chose love over everything. He fought a battle within himself to let go of his Christian ideology. And finally, daddy approved!
Hopie Feek marries her fiancée, Wendy
Hopie is a now a married woman. She and her partner of one year, Wendy, tied the knot in a sweet ceremony on the Feek family farm. Their 'Together Forever' has begun!
Hopie played the role of bride and her bridesmaid party donned matching rusty orange attire and carried sunflower bouquets. Following them on the groom's side was Wendy's party. They wore white shirts and sharp-looking pantsuits. Those ties, though!
The proud father, Rory, walked his lovely daughter down the aisle wearing his signature denim overalls in Pottsville, Tennesee. He looked emotional and overwhelmed, but definitely happy for her.
Mr. Feek's life without Joey
More than two years have passed since the music duo and partners in crime, Rory and Joey, saw their show come to an end. Their singing career was brought to a stop for a devasting reason. Joey lost her battle to cervical cancer in 2016.
After her unfortunate death, Rory kept himself busy by taking care of their 5-year-old daughter with Down's syndrome. He also published a book, Once Upon A Farm, dedicated to his wife and lovely child.
We wish Rory's family the best of everything. Share this and congratulate the beautiful couple!
