High school sweethearts get a lot of press. Even on the blog lately, I’ve had so many couples who have known and loved each other since they were teenagers. But I think it’s time we start recognizing another kind of sweetheart: the college sweetheart. These couples meet each other when they’re really starting to figure out who they are and who they want to be, what they believe and how they want to live out those beliefs. There’s something sort of wonderful about a couple whose love is built around that foundation. And wonderful is exactly what Liz and Arjun’s relationship is. Liz and Arjun met in college and have been sweethearts ever since. Emphasis on the sweet.
I arrived at Reston’s Hidden Creek Country Club with spring in full bloom all around it and knew it was going to be a gorgeous day. That excitement only multiplied when saw Liz for the first time—the girl was literally radiating happiness! She had the biggest smile on her face, and it didn’t fade all day long. And Arjun? Well, I’ll let you see for yourself the smile that lit up his face as he saw Liz walking toward him down the aisle. You can’t tell me that these two don’t share one of the most joyous loves you’ve ever seen! I’m so thrilled to get to share some of that joy on the blog today, and so thankful to Liz and Arjun for inviting me to be a part of it all in person! So, without further ado…
Introducing: Mr. and Mrs. Mohoni
When we were grabbing Liz’s details for photos, she tried to convince us that her shoes weren’t anything special. SO not true! I loved her white lace flats!
That gorgeous ring? It was actually Liz’s grandmother’s! Liz’s actual ring suffered an injury just two days before the wedding (!!) so this beauty stood in for her. For an heirloom ring, it was SO wonderfully modern!
That smile… honest! It never left!
Arjun and his guys were so much fun and good to put up with us throughout the day :)
Best groom reaction ever? Just maybe!
Oh, gosh, y’all are adorable.
The wind got just a little wild with Liz’s veil… this was right before she realized…
…and right after!
Liz’s father lead a beautiful ceremony of presenting bread, salt and wine to the newlyweds.
The spring blooms were out in full swing!
You two just melt my heart!
Such a favorite!
Just go ahead y’all!! So classically gorgeous!
I had to include this sweet shot of Liz and her mom…
Love love love…
The Mother-Son dance ended in a family group hug… my eyes certainly got a bit watery!
Liz, Arjun and their guests know how to party!
