When I think of Susan and Bobby and how they interact with one another, I always think of this passage by Roy Croft:
“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what ,
you have made of yourself but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”
I’ve known Susan since she was a teenager and the instant I met Bobby, I knew why she had fallen in love with him. Somehow, he – and they – just seemed right. It might be a bit cliché, but quite simply, he completes her. And she him! Together, they are one — each better than they could ever be apart. [hey! who doesn’t like a good Jerry McGuire reference now and again?!?]
This was especially evident on the day of their wedding. There might have been 30 or so pairs of eyes watching them from chairs set up on the beach, but they joined hands, hearts — and ultimately lives — at the end of the aisle, nobody else was even in focus. Just Susan. And Bobby. And the love that just makes them better.
Susan and Bobby…Thank you for simply being you. And for making your wedding about all the things that truly matter! I have no doubt that your love with continue to grow stronger and brighter with each passing day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be part of your love story. OXOX Renee
Cute program fans came in handy. It was a HOT Myrtle Beach day!
The blending of two families… A tender moment between father and son…
This wedding had it all….laughter…. and tears….
The single tear that slowly rolled down Bobby’s cheek as he told Susan how much she means to him was one of the most beautiful, poignant moments I’ve experienced in a wedding in a long time. That just about did me in — and it’s hard to hold a camera steady when you’re trying not to cry.
Sealed with a kiss…and a hug….IT’s OFFICIAL! Bobby and his best friend, who also happened to be the officiant
The bride and her sweet daddy
The happy family There’s no doubt that Bobby adores his kids. I suspect that the feeling may be mutual! Since the ceremony took place just beyond the Cherry Grove Pier, the couple wanted some fun photos on the pier before heading over to the reception.
This couple can only be serious for a quick minute….
Just married….and away they go…
They rented a super cute house right on the waterway for the reception
Bobby made their own wine….a pinot grigio they call Troublemaker – love the cute wine labels with an image from their downtown Raleigh engagement session last year An awesome collection of “their songs” was given to each guest along with colorful and tasty cake pops!
A quick entrance and let the party begin…. Susan said this wedding was laid back with a focus on fun and laughter. I think they nailed it. Love these shots of them dancing with their children… and even Dad got in on the action a little… A sweet moment between sisters One of my favorite images of the day. There is truly nothing like the love between a mother and her child!
