Anticipation. It’s felt in the moments before a big event. Usually an event you’ve been looking forward to for some time now. You likely get the jitters running throughout your body, but in a really good way. You start tapping your foot, feeling like you just can’t wait anymore. Then the music starts and your beautiful soon-to-be wife starts walking down the aisle. But still, it’s a long trip down the aisle, so you lean over to peek at her before she reaches you. A giant smile plastered to your face.

That’s what I like to imagine groom Rob was feeling right before he said his vows to Jen. Amazingly talented photographers Anne and Bill Holland of Charlottesville, Virginia, shot Jen + Rob’s wedding and caught this moment absolutely perfectly. Rob had been waiting at the altar for long enough, and all he wanted was to catch a glimpse of his almost-wife.

And you can’t blame him. Jen looked incredible in her wedding gown and custom-made Stuart Weitzman shoes to match. Once the couple is reunited at the altar, the smiles never leave their faces – from the photos of them walking down the streets to the shots of them at the pizza shop where they got engaged – to the beautiful reception.

Looks like all that anticipation was worth it. And luckily for Jen+Rob what comes after all the anticipation is even better.

These have obviously caught the most adorable and amazing smiles! Fantastic!

Wonderful works, love the couples’ shadows behind of the wedding cake.
