McKenzie and Kirk’s Wedding

Venue: Moore’s Spring Manor

When you think of a romantic mountain range wedding then you will likely picture McKenzie and Kirk’s wedding. The couple planned a beautiful day, among friends and family, to celebrate the joining of their lives. I wanted to share some of my favorite highlights from their special day and tell a little bit about their story.

These two lovebirds met by chance on a job site, a few years ago. They hit it off and both were confident they had found “the one” after their first date! We captured their engagement session in March; the joy and love between the two of them was palpable! I knew instantly it was going to be an incredible wedding come June!

The Wedding

McKenzie and Kirk’s wedding was full of emotion for everyone. There didn’t seem to be a dry eye anywhere on the day of the wedding. From sweet moments shared between McKenzie and her parents to the surprise video Kirk sent her as she finished getting ready, there were so many sweet, tearful moments before the ceremony had even begun. While the ladies got ready the men played pool and celebrated their best friend getting hitched!

Once everyone was dressed and ready, it was time for the ceremony! I loved the ceremony spot outside of the manor house overlooking the Sauratown Mountains. You could not have asked for a more beautiful day with the blue skies and light breeze. The entire bridal party was wonderful, but the ring bearer and flower girls were especially adorable, showcasing their individual personalities throughout the ceremony.

After the couple said their vows and walked back down the aisle as a married couple, it was time for the guests to enjoy cocktail hour while we snuck away and grabbed a few 1:1 shots with the newlyweds. The guests found their seats on a lovely blooming escort wall outside of the reception, which fit the natural theme of the wedding day and surrounding venue grounds so well.

The couple chose to repurpose their cross florals from the ceremony for the mantle of their reception that sat behind their head table and also repurposed their ceremony aisle arrangements as accents for their cake and dessert display. How clever!

The best man was Kirk’s brother, and the maid of honor was McKenzie’s older sister. They both gave great speeches highlighting the strength and kindness of both McKenzie and Kirk individually, as well as, their undeniable compatibility with one another. At the end of the night, the couple opted to have the last dance on their own as guests were escorted outside for the send-off. This is one of my favorite “new” trends in weddings, lately.

The DJ put on one of their favorite songs, while they took one last spin around the dance floor with McKenzie’s head on Kirk’s chest. They were able to soak everything in before they were sent off with bubbles by their guests! McKenzie and Kirk’s wedding was absolutely beautiful and I so look forward to what the future holds for them.
