I have been looking forward to shooting Brad & Molly’s wedding at Middle Fork Barn ever since I first met them. I love this couple! They are truly best friends and its obvious that they’re a great match! These two are incredible humans, so full of love for each other, and always laughing!
Molly started off the wedding day by getting ready at the at the cutest little Airbnb in Abingdon, Virginia called the “Greenway Suite.” It’s this third story loft with big painted glass windows and is full of charm! I love when the girls get ready in this suite–the natural light makes for breathtaking bridal portraits! The girls had matching robes and sparkling rosè which was so fun and made for great pictures too. It was such a lighthearted atmosphere, and at one point the girls were drinking bubbly, doing each others’ hair, and playing 90s boy band music–which is basically every girl’s dream, right?!
The wedding venue, Middle Fork Barn, is breathtakingly gorgeous! It is full of lush greenery, panoramic views, and even has a built in s’mores pit! It truly feels like an oasis! It has a lovely bridal suite equipped with a full sized closet and a powder room so that the girls don’t have to sneak off while the guys are around. The gentlemen even get their own cottage adjacent to the barn! There are so many different places to have your ceremony at Middle Fork Barn too–you really couldn’t have the same wedding twice!
Before the ceremony, the couple read letters that they had written specifically for each other. They were INCREDIBLE. Just to give you a taste, Brad’s letter came with a beautiful hand made collage of all the best photos of the two of them. But one of my FAVORITE things was going through all of their images and seeing how Molly’s letter truly brought tears to Brad’s eyes.
After the ceremony, everyone transitioned to the reception. The food was AMAZING and the decorations were gorgeous. Molly’s dad gave a beautiful speech and even brought a sign with him to help remind everyone of Brad and Molly’s favorite dates. During the toasts everyone was genuinely laughing at all the jokes made by Molly’s dad, best friend, and Brad’s brother!
The whole day was absolutely magical. Brad and Molly departed to a line full of cheerful guests and a bridal party loaded with confetti canons…lots of them!
