Some couples radiate love, affection and ease, and Robby and Nicole definitely fall into that category. Their entire day seemed effortless and full of emotion, and not just from the happy couple–every single person in attendance was clearly so joyful to partake in celebrating Nicole and Robby’s Glen Annie Golf Club wedding. The day was a joint effort by so many people…From Nicole, “Our wedding was about more than just us. We wanted our friends and family members to know how much they have contributed to our relationship over the past seven years, and we wanted to convey a sense of community togetherness throughout the entire weekend.”
We started off the day with getting ready photos at Nicole’s parents’ home where she grew up. Being able to incorporate items and locations with meaning gives these details a much more personalized feeling.
We decided to utilize all that the Glen Annie Golf Club has to offer by having Nicole and Robby’s first look there.When I asked Robby what some of his favorite things about Nicole are, he replied “I love how she appreciates the small things in life, and that I can always make her smile.”The two had written notes to one another to be read at their Glen Annie Golf Club wedding venue. More from Nicole…
“We have been through a lot during our seven years together, and writing notes to each other has always been our way of capturing a moment in time, and expressing our love for one another. Letters helped us stay connected during periods of our relationship when we did long distance. They helped us say things that were hard to express out-loud even when we lived together.
“Nothing, not even first look photos, can take away from the weight that comes with the moment you see your future husband standing at the altar. Walking down the aisle was one of my favorite moments – it all became real right there, in that instant. I don’t know that it had hit me until I looked up and saw Robby smile at me, that he was going to be my husband. How’d I get so lucky?!”It’s the small gestures that make all the difference…Nicole started tearing up as she was reading her vows. Robby didn’t miss a beat and grabbed her hand to show his support and affection.“Some of the themes we incorporated were adventure, the great outdoors, and our experiences with our close friends and family. We tried to convey that in our handmade centerpieces and decorations.”
We got two chances at sunset photos–the first while the sun was beaming through the oak tree by the dinner area, and then the second a little later, when the sun was setting over the hills.Some of the special and personalized pieces included in the duo’s Glen Annie Golf Club wedding were Robby’s grandmothers ring, a close family friend’s pearls, Robby’s dad’s cufflinks, and ‘new’ earrings from the 1930’s gifted to the bride from the groom.What are the two looking forward to?
“We are looking forward to building our future together and leaning into the dreams we have lightly discussed and fantasized about.”Congratulations, Nicole and Robby! Here’s to a lifetime of happiness, adventure, support and romance!
