Whitney & Parker are one of my most favorite couples. (They're my Redoubt 4 OG's.) So it would stand to reason on their wedding day, I was emotionally invested which maybe explains my excessive crying (sorry guys.) Their long-awaited (8 years in the making!) West Point wedding day was as perfect as could be.
Both Parker & Whitney got ready beforehand at the Thayer Hotel- reading notes from each other, exchanging gifts, and even sharing a special prayer before hand without seeing one another. Their ceremony was held in the Cadet Chapel, and Parker totally lost it watching Whitney come down the aisle. (I LOVE GROOMS WHO CRY. SORRYNOTSORRY.)
After bridal party pictures at Trophy Point, they enjoyed cocktail hour with their guests back at the Thayer, and then onto one of the most lit receptions I've seen in a minute. From the grand entrance to the first dances to speeches- there was such a range of emotions and no one seemed to hold anything back. The deepest laughs, flowing tears, huge smiles, heartfelt words, and warm embraces. Once the dance floor opened up...it opened up. The band was incredible (Blink 182 covers?! Yes please!) and kept everyone pumped the entire night.
Whitney & Parker- you two deserve the world, and I have no doubt that's what you'll give each other forever.
