Robbie + Kelly {Montgomery County Wedding}

"I would walk 500 miles,
And I would walk 500 more,
Just to be the man that walked a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door."

Maryland is not the same as Texas.
And Florida is not the same as Virginia.
And Virginia and Texas and Florida and Maryland are really not the same.
Photobucket
But somehow,
a girl in Maryland,
met a guy living in Texas,
in Florida,
(even though he'd spent much of his life in Virgina. Near Maryland.)
Photobucket

And this particular guy (his name is Robbie),
did a little number on this girl's (her name is Kelly) heart.
(I love this series.)

ps.  Don't ever hire me.
I make brides walk through mud and bridesmaids stand in the cold.
Spare yourself.
Photobucket
Through mutual friends,
texting, 
butterflies,
counsel
and more texting,
Kelly and Robbie started dating very shortly after they met.
Photobucket
The distance made things... special.  
Satellites in the sky,
as well as airplanes in the sky,
kept their friendship growing + strong.
Praise the Lord for those things!
Photobucket
Yes, they had exhausting whirlwind weekends of 
meeting family, 
having long talks, 
little sleep and
falling in love,
but they were willing to do whatever they needed to do.
Photobucket
Within months, Kelly and Robbie were engaged.
The were going to finally live together.
No "once or twice every month quick cram everything in!"
No more "good-night texts" after a night of being on the phone.
Photobucket
They'd be in person!
Together!
In the same state!
Because they were engaged. To be married.
And it's just best if married people are together.
In the same state.
Photobucket
By the way,
Robbie is the sweetest, caring-est, gentle-teddy-bear-iest, kind man I've ever met.
Kelly is going to be so well cared for
(in person, for the rest of her life.)
Photobucket
So on a absolutely freezing day in December,
(don't be fooled by the pictures.  
It.was.so.so.so.cold.)
hearts were united,
vows were made,
two became one,
and friends rejoiced!
Photobucket

Photobucket
(and complained under their breath about the photographer making them stand in the cold.
but it's okay,
I complained about myself to me, too ;) 
haha just playing, you all were WONDERful.)
Photobucket
You can't do that  v  over text, now can you? 
Photobucket
It was such a sweet delight to shoot these two.
They don't take for granted getting to be actually together.
They are loving, calm, relaxed people.
And they love each other.
Photobucket
Quite much.
Photobucket

Photobucket
And Kelly is a stinking hottie.
Photobucket
OH!
And did I tell you?
Ok, well.
See, 
Kelly is standing in a field.
It's about 10 degrees outside, and the sun is setting.
And she's barefoot.
Because it's kind of wet.
And there are thorns and sticks and... THORNS on the ground.
Photobucket

Photobucket
I need to give her a fattened calf.
Or my finest china.
Or a foot-massage.
(She was such a trooper, the bravest ever, and so sweet about it all.)
Photobucket
And now they are off to a life of "together":
learning to love together,
learning to serve together,
learning about each other together.
Photobucket
But mostly being in the same state together.
Congratulations Robbie and Kelly!

  5. Great job, Kristen! Only you could turn the muddy grass outside the church into a gorgeous picture background! You did a great job NOT capturing our many goose bumps that covered us on those outside pics. :)
