The Archibalds: Shadow Wood Manor, Moody, Alabama

The first wedding of June, at a new venue, with an amazing couple.

Ben & McKinley have a story straight out of a movie. They were friends in high school and eventually became high school sweethearts. Both sharing a love for music, they attended two separate colleges and were both in the college band. To say that kicked long distance’s butt is an understatement!

Ben & McKinley were married at the beautiful Shadow Wood Manor on a near-perfect summer day in June. Surrounded by the sweetest friends & family, you could feel the love & support from everyone in attendance. From the moment that McKinley saw her groom, I am pretty sure she had a smile on her face for the rest of the day.

The “house” was divided between The University of Tennessee and Mississippi State University, and was made clear when each school’s fight songs were shouted from opposite sides of the reception! They were sent off to begin their new life together with a cowbell send-off since McKinley attended Mississippi State University. SO FUN!

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Archibald!

Ben & McKinley are starting their new journey together in Auburn, Alabama where McKinley will attend veterinarian school! Thank you both so much for the honor of being a small part of your forever!
