When you are planning a June wedding, you really never know what kind of weather to expect! The day could be rainy, stifling hot, bug-filled OR it could be gorgeously sunny, the sky filled with big puffy white clouds with a high temperature of 75 degrees! Sam and Hope got their dream day to get married! Although, after knowing these two for the time I have…no bad weather could have changed their excitement for their wedding day!
The last month leading up to their day was filled with Hope finishing up her college running career and heading to the USA Track & Field Championship Finals. She ran in her event (Steeplechase) just two days before her wedding and ended up being the only collegian to qualify for the USA Track & Field National Championship Steeplechase Final! Hope missed the finals because she had another engagement…she was getting married on Saturday!! It has been a whirlwind couple of months for this sweet couple and the perfect bookend to it all…was becoming Mr. & Mrs. Hoffman!
The entire day was filled with love. From the bridal party being filled with siblings to the tiniest flower girls and ring bearers being nieces and nephews…it was family filled and love filled day. The beautiful joining of not only Sam & Hope but also their families was so lovely to watch and document!
Congratulations to you two!! You are both going to do BIG things together!
We got to steal the Newlyweds away for just a couple of minutes right as the sun was setting on their day! Love the soft light and their expressions on their faces…PURE JOY!
