How to Serve your Wedding Professionals from a Real Wedding in West Virginia

Something brides may not often think of in the haze of wedding planning is how to serve the wedding professionals that are serving them. Kindness is in style every day, especially the big day and it should extend to everyone in attendance.

From the submitter:

“As I entered Annie’s bridal suite there was an overall sense of calmness surrounding her. All accessories laid out … along with her dress gorgeously hung waiting to be worn. The moment I saw Annie’s dress I knew it was going to be one of my all time favorites, as it was so timeless and unique.

It was a cloudy day with rain in the forecast for Annie and Josh’s wedding day at Valley View Farm in Lewisburg, West Virginia. However, the rain held off until everyone was settled into the barn for the celebration portion of the reception.

I am someone who loves to observe, especially on a wedding day and on Annie and Josh’s wedding day I watched as Annie’s bridesmaids tended to her so lovingly. One could easily see that she had truly cultivated these friendships…

Upon seeing Josh’s face light up as Annie walked down the aisle, I knew that she had carefully tended her relationship to Josh, as she did to her girlfriends. Everyone could see the love in his eyes the second they met hers.

The entire day Annie and Josh’s friends and family treated us like one of their own. They made sure we were having a good time, even though we were there to serve them on their big day. Now we know that’s just who these wonderful souls are – they are kind, loving, and so welcoming, even to complete strangers on a day where it would be easy to get caught up in the hustle of the event.

Annie and Josh, thank you so much for allowing us to capture such an important moment in your lives. You made us feel so welcomed and it is couples like the two of you that make our job something that we love. We cannot wait to be a witness to your journey as husband and wife, as we know you both are going to do amazing things.”
