Lovely & Pink West Virginia Wedding

First off, we LOVE that this is the photographer’s brother’s wedding. Secondly, the story below is just too darling to miss. Thirdly, eh… who needs a third reason – check out this lovely wedding from Kelly Broyles Photography!

Joey & Jenn are the definition of first & true love. They met the spring of their Freshman year of high school in Joey’s neighborhood where Jenn’s grandparents also lived. In traditional high school fashion one of the neighbor kids told Jenn that Joey thought she was cute and they began to “talk” and dated for 3 months. Sadly their relationship did not last and during Sophomore year they broke up. Fast forward to the summer before Senior year of high school (2006) and they started to talk again, talking led to a relationship and they have been together since.

In August 2012 Joey took Jenn to Hilton Head, SC for vacation. The first night of their vacation after sitting in 9 hours of horrific traffic Joey made Jenn pick a restaurant for dinner. She wondered why they were going to dinner after they had been traveling and were both exhausted. Finally they settled on a restaurant called Little Venice. The restaurant was completely empty! Throughout dinner Joey acted completely normal until it was time for the check to come when he looked at her and said, “Well Jenn, we’ve been together for a long time now… and I want to be with you the rest of my life. Will you marry me?” Jenn’s first reaction was to scream, “It’s about freaking time!” but decided instead to settle for a simple “Yes!”

They were married at Little Creek Golf Course in South Charleston, WV on August 24, 2013. Together with Autumn Branscome of Autumn Branscome Photography ( we captured this gorgeous wedding day. Jennifer utilized Pinterest to gather ideas for tons of DIY details. SugarRush created a stunning cake and DJ Nick Scott provided music. The candy bar provided bags full of candy for guests which we were able to enjoy for many days after their wedding. (Thank you for that Jenn!) And by the end of the night my parents (Did I mention Joseph is my brother?) and Jenn’s grandparents were even on the dance floor enjoying themselves! A great success in my opinion!

These two are the epitome of true love.
