Safe in Your Arms

My hubby and I were dating not even a year when photographer, Rob Hallet of Rob Hallett Photography captured this special moment at a company Christmas party.

As you can imagine, it isn't easy to slow dance with me in the "traditional" way, but my hubby was bound and determined that he was going to dance with me that night.

"It had to be you" was playing and my hubby asked me to dance. I had no idea how we were going to make this work, but it didn't matter. Before I knew it, he had swept me up out of my chair and made his way to the dance floor.

I remember our co-workers (We used to work together. . .that's how we met.) looking on with such emotion. They were all taken back by the way he was so lovingly holding me in his arms and caught up in the moment; as if we were the only ones on the dance floor.

I had no idea that pictures were being taken of us. When this shot was presented to me in a framed 5x7 I couldn't help but feel my eyes swelling up with tears.

Look at his face! Complete love and contentment. I just knew seeing this picture I'd always be safe in his arms!


  1. What a beautiful love story!

  2. This is the cutest thing ever. I can't get over it. Your husband sounds like an absolute gem.
