Tara and Derek ‘s wedding at War Memorial Chapel on Virginia Tech’s campus was full of laughter and tears of joy! Tara’s reaction at seeing Derek for the first time, during their First Look, and walking down the aisle on her Daddy’s arm was one of the sweetest I have seen. This girl just oozes joy and laughter and I’m pretty sure it’s a family trait! When I first met the bride’s family, back before Christmas, they had me laughing the whole time and the wedding day was no exception. I just love when a bridal party of old friends, new friends and family members comes together and is held close by the love that they share for the bride and groom. Tara and Derek are truly loved by the community surrounding them and it was wonderful to stand among their loved ones and celebrate this day! Their reception was held at the German Club, which was the perfect setting for a classy party… and these people know how to party!
