Willie & Mallory

Willie and Mallory have been dating almost 3 years but they planned their wedding in 3 weeks!  They decided to get married over Christmas vacation for a couple reasons.   Willie is a soldier in the Army and will be deployed in 2020. Mallory is from a large family (she is one of 8 kids) and it was important to her for her family to be together for her wedding. Not an easy task for a family that size but doable over the Holidays.   Willie and Mallory planned their wedding in just a few short weeks and it was so lovely.  I was so impressed with how laid back and relaxed they both were even though the had every reason to be stressed.   I can’t say enough sweet things about this couple and the Godly witness and character they both demonstrate.  I also felt so welcomed by their families and that meant so much to me.   Take a look at their special evening held at Warehouse 18 Venues in Hickory, NC.2019-12-27_00822019-12-27_0079Mallory and her mom.  2019-12-27_0075Mallory and Willie’s little girl, Chloe. 2019-12-27_00462019-12-27_0044Mallory and her sister Hannah.  2019-12-27_00382019-12-27_0069Mallory and her bridesmaids.  Pictured left are her friends and pictured right are her sister, Willie’s sister, and Mallory’s youngest sister.  2019-12-27_00362019-12-27_00782019-12-27_00682019-12-27_00342019-12-27_00762019-12-27_00372019-12-27_0033Praying with Mallory before the ceremony. 2019-12-27_0040Pictured on the right is Willie, his dad Bill and son Will. 2019-12-27_00472019-12-27_00432019-12-27_01512019-12-27_00562019-12-27_00602019-12-27_00612019-12-27_00592019-12-27_00642019-12-27_00632019-12-27_00582019-12-27_00302019-12-27_01562019-12-27_00292019-12-27_0027Willie’s children, Chloe and Will.
