Before Rob and Shelby began dating, the two developed a friendship. It was this friendship that made them realize merely a week into their relationship that they wanted to be in each other’s lives forever. In the time that I have spent with Rob and Shelby, I have seen just how much they enjoy each other’s company and make each other laugh. I can think of no better foundation for a wonderful marriage.
I have to brag on Rob’s behalf for a second. When I discussed the wedding plans with Rob and Shelby, I discovered that much of the planning was done by him. Shelby explained that many of the little details, like the lavender on the aisle chairs, were Rob’s idea. I have never seen a groom so involved in a wedding before, and I thought this was the sweetest thing! Way to go, Rob!
I love Shelby’s dress, and guess what…her mom made it!
Rob and Shelby literally tied the knot at their wedding ceremony. A handfasting ceremony was performed, a ritual that dates back to early times in Scotland, Ireland, and occasionally Britain. Each cord represents a vow that is made.
