Here in Northern Virginia, it’s beginning to look a lot like summer. After enduring some bitter cold days in the first month of the year, February seems determined to jump right past any sort of winter finale or spring transition and dip us right into the enveloping warmth of a 78-degree day in early June.
And maybe that’s why I’ve been reminiscing back to Amanda and Robby’s beautiful June wedding under the tent at the Inn at Vint Hill. Although, the warmth that you encounter in Amanda and Robby’s relationship can admittedly transport you to summer no matter what time of year it is. This is the team who grew up together through every stage of life. Whose story is the stuff of novels and blockbuster hits. Robby and Amanda’s love is so sweet to me because there is nothing that they don’t know about each other. Amanda knows just how messy of an eater Robby was as a child… because she was there to see it. And Robby witnessed his wife’s impressive work ethic as she earned her doctorate in physical therapy… because he was there to see it. They have inside jokes from high school orchestra and favorite haunts at their alma mater, Virginia Tech. Amanda and Robby didn’t just start their lives together, their roots have long been entwined.
And on that gloriously beautiful June day last year, it wasn’t just Amanda and Robby acknowledging their roots and saying yes to lifetime of growing side-by-side, but their families as well. Every moment—from a tearful first look with Amanda and her dad to Robby’s sweet dance with his mom to their favorite bluegrass song—was a weaving of two families into one. It was pure joy/honor/magic/wonder to get to be a fly on the wall for the start of these lovebirds’ next chapter.
