When Libby was a sophomore at Wofford College, she attended a fraternity rush party with her sorority sisters. Little did she know that she would meet a guy who was the first of his kind that night: the only guy named Marshall she had ever met. He also turned out to be the man she would fall in love with and eventually marry.
Libby and Marshall both have great personalities, which mean they are two of a kind for each other. She said she loves how he never tires of her goofy behavior, how huggable he is, and how he can always make light of anything that she’s feeling down about. She also loves his sweet and simple gestures of love like thanking her for cooking dinner by reaching out and kissing her hand over the table (swoon!). He said he knew she was the “one” when she knew how to juggle (they do this together now!), liked to play cards, and on the day he proposed, when he almost didn’t get to see her, he couldn’t stop thinking about her being upset and making things right.
It was a joy to capture their wedding day and see their personalities together. Libby and Marshall, I hope you continue to be goofy together, enjoy those weekly sushi dates, and perfecting your chili recipe! Best wishes!

Her junior year, Libby was pronounced Pi Kappa Phi’s Rose Queen, or fraternity sweetheart, at their end of the year formal. Roses are now her favorite flower and made sure they were included in some kind of bridal detail. The garter was the perfect choice!
I love that you can see Libby’s silhouette reflecting in the glass…and of course the excitement of her bridesmaids!
Libby, you are just beautiful!
Libby and Marshall wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other, but after discussing the timing of their day, we found that there wouldn’t be enough daylight left for us to do family, wedding party, and couple portraits afterwards. I reminded them that having a First Sight before the ceremony would be an equally special moment and would give them a chance to be alone before the rush of the wedding. The day before the wedding, I got a call from Libby saying they decided to commit to having a First Sight. After seeing their smiles and their big embrace, I was sure that it was a decision they wouldn’t regret.
Libby and Marshall are two peas in a pod. I wasn’t giving any direction for these next two and at the same time they puckered up to each other. So cute!
Guests were starting to arrive and we wanted to keep it a secret that Libby and Marshall saw each other, so we stayed on one side of the church. I couldn’t complain because we had a beautiful garden to work with!
This photo is SO them!
Love, love, love!
I am head over heels in love with this little pink chapel, aren’t you?!
See, Marshall still had an emotional reaction to seeing his bride walk down the aisle.
A gift from Marshall…
Libby and Marshall are self-confessed foodies (Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday, one of mine too!!) so they had a feast for their guests. The cake was so pretty and equally delicious with flavors of chocolate pomegranate, vanilla, and raspberry lemonade. YUM.
Pi Kappa Phis!
Love this ring shot!
Wishing you all the best in your future together! Thanks for letting me share this day with you, Mr. and Mrs. Washburn! xoxo, Jennifer
