COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Tabitha and Ross
We first met Tabitha and Ross over a year ago--we can hardly believe their big day is already in less than a month! Read below to learn a bit more about these two cuties.
1. HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
Rowing! I had recently moved to the area and I had made a girlfriend who suggested that I come out and row with her. Since I had never tried it I thought I would give it a go. I started rowing with the women's team regularly and one night we had an open seat in the boat, so the coach reached out to the mixed team for participation and little did I know, but my future husband showed up that night.
2. WHAT'S THE PROPOSAL STORY?
Ross was rowing on the men's team for the Alcatraz Island race, which is in very difficult water. I had volunteered to be the bow hook- which is essentially the coach/cheerleader who sits behind the rowers and encourages and corrects them. That year, Alcatraz was terrible!! Only one team crossed the finish line, the rest had to be towed in or use a separate entrance. We were on the water for about 2 and half hours, but going nowhere. After that we decided to hang around the city for the day and it ended up coming up. I don't think he had planned it that way, but it was perfect.
3. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO BOOK THE LIGHTHOUSE FOR YOUR BIG DAY?
Love at first sight! We had looked at several venues and nothing seemed to fit our personality or style. When we walked in to the Lighthouse it was perfect. Simple, yet fantastically elegant and right on the water- where we used to row together. It just seemed perfect!
4. WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO ON YOUR BIG DAY?
Family! I'm so excited to bring our families together.
And we are lucky to be able to witness the joining of your two families! See you next month, Tabitha and Ross!
