This one was all about family. Our approach to weddings is one that is ultra-focused on relationships and the moments that help tell the authentic story of those relationships throughout a wedding day. Tabitha and Joel’s wedding was rich in such moments. We loved seeing their interactions with their daughter, parents, and especially their grandparents. We loved seeing Tabitha’s grandma’s reaction to seeing reflection in the mirror after her makeup was complete – something she rarely does. Tabitha loved seeing her all dolled up! We loved watching Tabitha’s grandfather throughout the day, and seeing family members one after the other join him for a dance and hug on the dance floor. Just a beautiful day for their family.

Tabitha and Joel were married at St. Teresa Catholic Church, located in Carlyle, Illinois. Their reception was hosted at the Knights of Columbus Hall, also in Carlyle. We braved the cold and strong winds to get some portraits at Hazlet Park in between the ceremony and reception. Presented below are some of our favorite photos from throughout their day as well as the video we created for them.
