Mike+Leigh| September 11

When I think of Mike and Leigh the first word that comes to mind is genuine. Beautiful inside and out. Together they radiate true happiness in such a pure form. They convey a love that is not self seeking. They are humble, kind and so genuine.

I have been anxiously waiting for this day for over two years and it was well worth the wait.

The day started with, hands down, the sweetest first look with a dad I have ever had the pleasure of capturing. Rusty and Leigh both burst into tears the moment they saw each other and I was fighting back tears. When Rusty shot me a thumbs up through tears I burst out laughing. It was perfect and set the stage for how the day would be-full of happiness and the sweetest tears.

Their wedding was the ultimate celebration of love and family. It wasn’t created to focus on themselves but to share and celebrate with family and friends. The ceremony took place in a stunning historic church in Wytheville Virginia. The church was used as a hospital during the civil war. Gorgeous light flooded into this beautiful church with soft green walls. Mike and Leigh said their vows surrounded by family and friends.

After portraits at the church we took a beautiful drive out to the piece of heaven that Mike and Leigh recently purchased. They plan to build their dream home on this land. When we did their planning sessions weeks before their wedding to finalize their timeline they made my dreams come true by saying ‘portraits are so important to use so take all the time you need and we also want to drive to the land we bought for portraits on our farm’. Yes times a million.

The celebration continued with dancing through the night at Seven Sisters brewery in downtown Wytheville Virginia.

Thank you for allowing me to share in your perfect day. I pray continual blessings over your marriage Mike and Leigh.
