On a September afternoon last year, Robbie totally surprised Erin.
They left work early and spent a rare afternoon together, strolling through museums and sipping on cocktails. Erin was giddy enough from the unexpected date that she had NO IDEA why Robbie really set it up – to ask her to spend forever with him. She had no clue it was coming!
You see, Erin and Robbie have already been together for eighteen years. Their relationship has already stood the test of time, seeing several different phases of life with it. They’ve worked their way up the ladder at successful consulting firms, supporting each other’s challenging, fast-paced careers. They have attended numerous Virginia Tech games and only intensified their love and loyalty to the college… it’s where they met, after all! And over eighteen years of standing side by side, Erin and Robbie made it here: to their Forever-and-Always.
Since they had family in the area, Robbie and Erin knew they wanted a Southern California destination wedding. So they flew in from Virginia, and their guests came from all over the country, to gather for the celebration. And these guests? They LOVE this couple.
But what’s not to love? These two are intentional, joyful, kind… and the little things mean the most to them. Erin wore a pearl bracelet that belonged to her mother, and pinned a handkerchief from her grandmother to the inside of her gown. Robbie was moved to tears as he read Erin’s sweet note, and those emotions returned as he saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle. #allthefeels
The grounds at L’Auberge Del Mar were the perfect backdrop for this beautiful wedding party, and it reflected Erin’s classic, elegant east-coast style. We love the fresh, sweet florals that adorned Seagrove Park at their ceremony, and all the peachy details at their Powerhouse Del Mar reception, beautifully coordinated by Melissa of I Do Weddings & Events!
Robbie and Erin, what an incredible day! We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into your lovely wedding – we are so-so-so excited to share!
