Valley Park – Hurricane, WV
I met Willis and Tabitha through another photogapher friend of mine – and what a blessing it was!
Willis is probably the most outgoing person I have ever met and I am pretty sure he knows every single person in the tri-state! We met for dinner two weeks before the wedding and every couple minutes, someone was stopping to talk with him.. and to top it off, he always has this HUGE smile on his face, especially when he is looking at his new bride!
Tabitha is a lot like me. We are a little more on the quieter side in big crowds but, get us around people we know…and that quietness starts dissipating.. watching her with Willis -they are perfect together, always supporting one another in all the best ways!
So many family & friends were responsible for the details of the day, from the florals (their family friend coordinated & did all the floral design), Tabitha’s makeup was done by the MOH, the sweet table – unbelievable, and the dj & videographer – close friends to the family. I mention these things because every one of them had a special connection with Willis & Tabitha and I know it helped make their day even more perfect!
The day’s forecast was uncertain but.. somehow, the rain clouds held off up until we finished the wedding party portraits.. I still cannot believe it. The darkest clouds above, and thunder rolling in, I thought for sure we had MAYBE 5 minutes for portraits, but once again, the good Lord held them back until we finished <3
My favorite part of the day was probably the reception – so much dancing and the music was on point! The desserts, woah! Cake, cupcakes, cookies, chocolate covered oreo balls, oh my! Their family, I am still in awe at how much fun they have together. Willis told me that they were close, but getting to see this dynamic in person…what a special bond! What a perfect way to end a long awaited celebration!
Tabitha & Willis, we are so thankful to have met you and to call you friends! We wish you a lifetime of happiness (& cake only if you share with Greg 😉 haha!)
