Morgantown-Fairmont West Virginia Wedding Photographer | Lambert Wedding

Let me start off first by saying that this wedding is very special to me.  

One of the first people I met when I moved to West Virginia was Whitney.  We were assigned to be not only teammates, but roommates at Fairmont State College (yes, I know it's a University now).  I remember the first time I talked with her over the phone.  :) Her tough southern accent threw me for a loop (haha...I know what your thinking....southern accent...I'm from Michigan...any person south of us has a southern accent).  I could tell she was a go-getter.  She explained to me that she was running hills and weight training with her dad over the summer to prepare for her first year of college volleyball.  I, on the other hand, had just finished my first year of college volleyball at a Junior College near Detroit, and dreaded all the running and weight training that was ahead of us.  Needless to say, I wasn't as excited, and the whole "running hills" thing, kind of scared me (come on, I'm a flat lander).  

I remember the day well when we met for the first time at Morrow Hall, before heading to the Feaster Center for physicals.  We were both surprised to find that neither of us was what we were expecting, and we still to this day get a kick out of it.   Our time spent together in our dorm room and house brought many good laughs, crazy nights, loads of funny stories, and an everlasting friendship.

I have to admit, I got a little misty eyed at the end of their wedding night, and might be shedding a few tears as I type this (don't judge ;)).  

Whitney and her family are amazingly, wonderful people.  I mean, walk into their house and feel like you've known them all your life, type of people.   If you've had the pleasure of knowing them, you understand. They were basically my second family, and took such great care of me.  I am so grateful for their kindness and love they showed me over the years, and also very thankful to have met them. So naturally, I felt very honored to have been chosen to document their wedding day.

Before I go on about how beautiful their wedding day was, I think it's necessary to share a moment I had with Whitney months before their big day. I don't think I told Gabe this, but when they first met, I asked Whitney one night, when we were playing volleyball "if he was the one?", and without hesitation, Whitney looked at me and said "yes, I've never felt this way about any one."   :)  

This is it folks.  The real deal.  These two are truly in love, and it shows! Their wedding day was perfect and beautiful, despite the rain! And yes, it rained, but that didn't effect either of their spirits.  They embraced it.  We had quite the experience getting all the formal pictures done though.  It involved garbage bag ponchos, drenched outfits, and tons of umbrellas.  But everything turned out perfect! And I think you'll agree!!!! 

Congrats Whitney and Gabe!!!!! We are so happy for the both of you!!!! And thank you again for picking us!!! We enjoyed every second of it!!!

Enjoy!!!!!
