Tabitha Brown A Newlywed Again
The social media influencer created an exclusive photoshoot to celebrate marital bliss with her man. The pressure of planning a vow renewal took its toll on the couple, and they opted to focus on themselves and not what a wedding is generally for, the extended family.
“My husband said, ‘Honey, it started getting a little stressful trying to figure it out,’ and we realized, ‘Wait, we’re doing this for everybody else and not for us,'” the 44-year-old recalled to People magazine.
“And us, we want simple things, [it] makes us happy being together, traveling together, going somewhere we both enjoy, but also celebrating our love in a beautiful photo shoot and having that memory.”
Chance also chimed in and echoed the thoughts of his wife. “We realize that we have something special. It needs to be celebrated.” The big moment is being celebrated in more than just a ceremony for the couple. It has been interwoven into their significant milestones.
Tabitha Brown’s Anniversary Is April 19
The couple’s big day is still a few days away, but they made sure to incorporate it into important activities they share. First, the photoshoot where the couple had three outfit changes. They also host a podcast together where they have already recorded a special 20th-anniversary episode.
People mag says the episode will focus on the couple’s original wedding day and how the weather let them down, that sounds, with rain.
“It was better than what was planned and what we imagined, in my opinion, to know how far God has brought us. When we got married, we were not in a house like this. Let me tell you, it was a tiny home in Greensboro, North Carolina,” she recalled.
Tabitha was also highly excited about the dresses she had the opportunity to wear:
“It was like a dream. I could have never afforded any of those dresses 20 years ago. When we married 20 years ago, I was going to borrow a friend’s dress, but then my mama and I went shopping and went to David’s Bridal. They had an outlet shop in Burlington, North Carolina, and they had this rack of dresses that were $99. And so, I found a dress.”
20 Years Because Of Good Communication
When asked by the publication their secret to a long, happy marriage, they agreed, it’s communication.
“Sometimes people hear communication and think, ‘Oh, that just means talking.’ But sometimes, it means not talking. Sometimes it knows when not to bother your spouse, when to allow them their space when to just listen when just to be present for them,” she says. “Just learning how they need you to show up and communicate with them and how they need you to love them, not how you want to be loved.”
Tabitha added, “Be mindful that we could be here today and go on tomorrow and love them like that, love your partner like that and protect them that.”
