Molly describes her relationship with Andrew as the real-life version of the movie When Harry Met Sally. “We started out as two people that sort of knew each other through friends, running into each other in things like youth orchestras and marching band events. When we found ourselves at the same college and in all of the same classes in the Fall of 2011, we instantly became close friends. We eventually got to talking on the phone almost every night, but it was just as friends. After a falling out, we quickly found each other again.”
The couple got engaged on Christmas Day in 2016. Molly and Andrew exchanged ornaments as the first year of a tradition they hoped to continue. The last present she opened was an ornament with the words “Molly, will you marry me?” as he pulled out a ring. “Of course I said yes.”
133 guests were in attendance for their mid-October nuptials at Holly Hills Country Club, including four bridesmaids, four groomsmen, and two junior bridesmaids. They were married by a friend of Molly’s father, using a modern set of vows. The poem “My Promise of Love to You” was read. “We have been pinky promising for as long as we’ve been friends. We decided to have this poem read aloud and pinky promise as it was being read. It was absolutely perfect.”
The couple chose a color palette of navy and gold for their reception. Instead of a cake, Molly and Andrew served personal cheesecakes.
Andrew is a Senior Backgrounds Compliance Analyst and Molly is an Instrumental Music Teacher for Prince George’s County Public Schools. They currently reside in Laurel, Maryland.
