Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events told me to pray for no rain earlier in the week. I hadn’t been watching the forecast but evidently, there was a storm that was going to be looming over us on Saturday. Her team along with Heather and her mom made the call to do an indoor ceremony and it was the RIGHT call!! The rain came in right before she headed down the aisle. However!!! You would never know that Rob and Heather had a rainy wedding day 1. because they had a blast & a little rain couldn’t steal their joy and 2. because we were able to take ALL of their portraits outside!! The rain held off for us all morning and I am SO thankful!!!

I started the day at the Oakhurst Inn near the University of Virginia in Downtown Charlottesville. This quaint inn was packed full of beautiful bridesmaids! There were bridesmaids and then honorary bridesmaids. This is what happens when you’re well loved and you have so many friends!! Obviously Heather is one amazing woman if she has so many girlfriends that she has two groups of bridesmaids! All of her girls were so welcoming. I came into their world of hairspray, makeup and chitter chatter and they welcomed me with open arms! I even put some of them to work!! Several bridesmaids are Heather’s height and they could hang the bridesmaids dresses up on the door frame without having to climb up on a chair! It was wonderful!!!

Something else that was wonderful was getting to see how much everyone loves Heather and Rob’s relationship. Heather’s mom was a little teary at one point of the reception and she just leaned over and said to me…. “If you only knew how perfect he is for her…”. Isn’t that what every mother wants to be able to say about her little girl’s husband on her wedding day? Heather and Rob were surrounded by such amazing family and friends this past Saturday and it was an honor to be able to be the ones there to capture their day!!!

Enjoy some of my favorites and be on the lookout for the Ring bearer/ Flower girl trio…. they are siblings and they are precious!!!!
