Joey + Leigh Anne | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer | The Mallorys

The morning of Joey + Leigh Anne’s Meriwether Springs Vineyard wedding, I posted an Instagram saying something along the lines of “this is the wedding I’m going to cry at” and sure enough… I did. Before the ceremony, Joey and Leigh Anne got to step away for a private moment to pray together. In his prayer, Joey asked God that at least one person be touched by His love during their day, their ceremony, their celebration- and I can tell you with complete certainty that not a person left that place untouched.

Joey and Leigh Anne each have the kind of genuineness that is rare to find- so putting them together in marriage makes this duo unstoppable. There were countless moments where J + LA would stop, look us in the eye, and ask if there was anything they could do for us. For us! They were the bride and groom- celebrities for the day- and they still couldn’t stop serving.

They worshipped during their ceremony, loved during portraits, and partied the night away with their closest family and friends. And that’s how it’s done, friends. When their friends stepped up to the microphones to give their toasts it was clear that we aren’t the only ones who adore J + LA. They’ve left their mark- their beautiful, thoughtful, kind, and loving mark- on every person they’ve met. We laughed through funny stories about their beloved cat Scottie, we teared up over heartfelt memories of the two of them showing up over and over again for their loved ones, and we walked away knowing more fully how special these two are and that together they are going to change the world.

Joey and Leigh Anne, you two couldn’t have become any dearer to us over the past year and while we’re sad that your wedding has come and gone, we are thrilled that you’ve joined the “Married Club”, and we can’t wait to see what else this sweet friendship has in store for us! We love you guys! So, so much! Enjoy a few (ha!) of our favorites from your beautiful, beautiful day before you head off to Mexico tomorrow!

xo + cheers!
