Jenny, a plastic surgeon from Indiana, and Ben, an equity research analyst from South Carolina, got engaged on a hike at Great Falls two years after a first date at now-defunct Kith and Kin. Their intimate, outdoor April wedding at the Goodstone Inn in Middleburg included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. For a personal touch, the couple wrote letters to their 62 guests on the backs of each menu. The color palette for the day include red and gold, and for dessert, the couple chose a red-velvet cake with an assortment of pies. Check out the photos of their big day below.
