RHINECLIFF HOTEL WEDDING: ROBB + MICHELLE

Michelle is the type of person that you just wanted around you all the time - she is so sweet and encouraging and positive, and you feel like she'd be there for you if you ever need a hug. She's also funny and charming and AWESOME, and Robb knows it! He's just as awesome and together they are like a super couple! You might remember them from their engagement session last fall. They are a swing dancing, Wall-E watching, creole craving, old book loving kind of couple! Their intimate wedding was held at The Rhinecliff Hotel, and every single detail was perfect - from the gorgeous outdoor ceremony to the live jazz band and everything in between! :)

Michelle and Robb chose to incorporate the old Irish tradition of handfasting into their ceremony.

Naturally, they had LOTS of swing dancing at the reception! I couldn't believe how many of their guests could really dance!
