• Kenny + Misty

“WOWED” when he saw her during their First Look.  He told her how amazing she looked, they hugged, kissed, laughed……it was beautiful…… but when she came down the aisle…. that’s when he fell to pieces. There is something powerful about that image for a groom. The groom can see ALL of the guests, he has just watched the entire bridal party make their way down the aisle and finally, here she comes…. the girl he’s choosing to spend the rest of his life with, the girl that filled a void in his life and became his best friend, here comes his bride.  Misty did look amazing. Her dress, her hair, she’s just a beautiful girl….but Kenny wasn’t crying just because of her beauty, he was crying because this girl

has changed his life. They exchanged vows and as Misty spoke to Kenny, she thanked him for loving her for who she is and for teaching her how to love herself. She promised to stand beside him through the good times and the rough moments in life. Tears were flowing and as they finished their vows and exchanged rings, they became husband and wife.


It was a beautiful day in Middleburg, VA. The weather was literally PERFECT.  Kenny and Misty celebrated their wedding day at the Briar Patch, overlooking the mountains. Friends and family from their childhood, from college and from high school joined them for their big day. Because these two have known each other since high school, there were some VERY entertaining stories that were shared!  There were also emotional toasts and speeches, thanking the different people in their life that have helped them get to this point in their life. It was a beautiful celebration and as I watched it all unfold, I loved these two more and more. Kenny and Misty are an incredible couple to work with and I’m so blessed to have clients like them! I’m thrilled to show you their gorgeous Middleburg wedding!!! Here are the favorites!
