Cassandra & Tobin | Brookmere Winery Wedding

I first met Cassandra and Tobin during—of all things—a wedding.

Though we’d all attended Penn State, and I had seen their faces around, I didn’t have the joy of really getting to know these two until the wedding of mutual friends. Cassandra, insanely gifted in all things organizational, was acting as coordinator to ensure our friend’s day went off without a hitch while Tobin, the warm, friendly, and welcoming soul that he is, made the perfect emcee during the reception. Seriously, if these two hadn’t dedicated their lives to ministering to college-aged students, they could run one heck of a wedding planning business! Their qualities complement each other so perfectly that you just can’t deny this powerhouse couple was brought together with a purpose so full.

But for two years, this incredible duo lived on separate continents, separated by oceans and mountains and valleys, as Tobin served on an international ministry team. The distance was never easy, nor was the length, but if there were ever two souls more wonderfully fit for a long distance relationship that was still full of joy and endearing love, it was Tobin and Cassandra. And now, such a distance will never have to separate them again.

The day was perfect. Cassandra was beautiful, the dress was flawless, the groom and his guys looking dapper and the venue decorated to the nine’s. But it was exactly none of these things that catapulted Cassandra and Tobin’s wedding day into the “perfect” category. The beautiful details were wonderful and the fact that the timeline went off without a hitch admittedly made my job easier, but ultimately, the day was a flawless one because two beautiful souls promised themselves forever and brought so much glory to God in doing so. It was such a joyful honor to get to be there as C+T said, “I Do,” and I am beyond thrilled to share highlights of their day with you! A HUGE congratulations to you both! I cannot wait to see what incredible adventures married life brings your way!

Some brides get a letter from their groom before the wedding. Cassandra received an entire journal full of notes that Tobin had written her while he was overseas during their engagement!

If you’ve never been to a wedding with Western Pennsylvania ties, you a missing out! Cookie Tables might be one of my favorite wedding traditions!

Tobin and Cassandra danced alongside Tobin’s parents in a dance in memory of his sister, Kayla. This dance and the beautiful yellow roses throughout the celebration reminded us of her presence throughout the day, and it was truly beautiful.
