Holly + Rob’s Maryland barn wedding was so meaningful. All weddings are meaningful to us, but I have known Holly and her family for many, many years (more about that later). Holly + Rob met at Planet Fitness, when he was her instructor. They continued to talk and the rest is history. He proposed to her at the WVU/Texas football game last year. Which coincidentally, our family was at too, but we didn’t know it was all going down. Their wedding colors were an homage to WVU and it was perfect.

The wedding day was glorious. It was sunny and super hot. I think it was 100 (but the weather app said it felt like 110). The ceremony was so sweet and loving. Holly’s mom and brother walked her down the aisle. Holly’s father passed away years ago. He was actually one of my dad’s great friends from college (and later of course). I don’t know how it is to lose a father at such a young age, but I know how it is now. My heart was with them all day as I saw so many tears and hugs.

As Holly and her brother and mom walked her down the aisle, all I could think about was how her father was looking down and smiling from heaven. Rob had tears coming down. There were many, many tears all around. We could all feel the love and see it. Their vows were beautiful and so heartfelt.

Their first dance was sweet and brought everyone together. Holly walked in with Rob, wearing her dad’s WVU football sweater. It was such a touching moment. After the dances, the party started! Lots of great music and dancing was had by all. We had some fun with sparklers too.

The dress on the right is Holly’s mom’s wedding dress, which she wore later on in the evening.  The photo above was the one and only time we caught the necklace with the sunflare. I keep coming back to it because all I can think of was that out of 1000s of photos, only one had this happen. I think her dad was there with them. 

Holly and Rob, we are so happy for you both and so thankful we were there to capture your wedding day. It was amazing to see so much love! xoxo
