Not everyone can get wed at Oprah’s house, however Kirby Bumpus– Gayle King’s infant girl and Oprah’s goddaughter– was fortunate sufficient to wed fiancé Virgil Miller in such a ‘stunning’ location.

Kirby Bumpus is married! The child of Gayle King tied the knot with fiancé Virgil Miller in December 2020, saying “I do” at Oprah Winfrey‘s Santa Barbara house. Gayle’s child, Will Bumpus Jr., officiated.

The wedding was at first disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with travel limitations, social distancing, and quarantine protocols ruining Kirby and Gayle’s plans. They found their “Fallback” in the type of Kirby’s godmother, Oprah, who hosted the event. It also worked out that photographer Joe Pugliese was on hand to catch Kirby’s wedding. “Joe doesn’t normally do weddings,” Gayle informed Oprah Publication, “but Oprah just so took place to be shooting something on her residential or commercial 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 thankful we have those memories, due to the fact that the images are stunning,” added Gayle. She also shared that Kirby and Virgil had to adapt to the brand-new normal of COVID-19 Kirby had her gown fitting via Zoom with Oprah, Gayle, and her best friend. On the day of the wedding event, Gayle– who lives on the East Coast, while Kirby and Virgil reside on the West– couldn’t go into the house to help her daughter get ready, which she confesses was “actually tough.” After the wedding, “there was socially remote hors d’oeuvres and cake” and “socially distant dancing.”

“No one understands Kirby the method her bro does, so for him to do the event felt implied to be,” Gayle told Oprah Publication “My kid, Will, says, ‘We call ourselves a tripod, and that day with Virgil, we became a perfect square,'” adds Gayle.
