Nobody knows Kirby the way her brother does, so for him to do the ceremony felt meant to be,” King gushed as her son was not initially slated to officiate. “My son, Will, says, ‘We call ourselves a tripod, and that day with Virgil, we became a perfect square.'”

King shared the stunning wedding photos which were taken by Joe Pugliese

“Joe doesn’t normally do weddings, but just so happened to be shooting something on her property that got canceled at the last minute, so we lucked out and had a professional photographer who followed all pandemic protocol. I’m so glad we have those memories, because the photos are stunning,” King explained.

While many celebs decided to cancel and postpone their weddings due to the pandemic, Bumpus was undeterred and adapted plans to keep everyone safe.

King told Oprah Magazine that her daughter held wedding dress fittings over Zoom where she and Winfrey watched remotely and could not enter Winfrey’s to help Bumpus get ready on her big day which was “really tough.”
