Where do I begin with Danielle and Mike? They are a beautiful couple, and, so much more importantly, they have been just beyond sweet and wonderful to work with!! These two light each other's eyes up, and I can truly tell how deeply committed they are to each other. Their day was gorgeous, in the 50s in November (you can't ask for more than that!), at the stunning Innsbrook Resort. When I first arrived, I went straight to the Aspen room and fell in love with the sequins, twinkling lights, and rich wood tones.
Danielle was a vision in the absolute perfect dress for her!
First look time . . . .
LOVED Mike's perfectly appropriate reaction!
Such a kind and sweet group of ladies! And that color palette!
Couldn't have asked for a better group!
Did I mention how stunning she was?
Mike was looking very handsome himself!
The ceremony was held right on the edge of the lake, as sunset approached just beyond the water.
Even after a first look, Mike was still a little teary-eyed watching his bride walk down the aisle to him.
Actually, there were not a lot of dry eyes period, haha!
My heart always skips a beat when I get to photograph a wedding with a God's Knot ceremony! My husband and I did this at our own wedding, and, to me, it means so much! A cord of three stands is not easily broken, indeed.
You may kiss the bride!
I can't imagine them happier.
We were able to sneak in a few photos by the water, just as the sky became a beautiful purple blue, before the reception. It was perfection.
As beautiful of a November day as it was, it was still a little chilly! But I am not one to complain if a couple wants to snuggle up in a blanket during photos. I love the sweet moments that followed!
The reception took place in the Aspen room, a cozy little oasis away from the chill.
My favorite part of the reception varies a lot, but this time it was probably the toasts! There were more laughs, tears, and hugs than anyone could count!
The first dances followed, which were simply magical.
Believe me, this group was not shy of the dance floor!!
What a FUN reception!
Congratulations, Danielle and Mike!! Your day was heartwarming, beautiful, and completely unforgettable! Thank you for bringing me along to be a part of it! Working with the two of you has been amazing, and I can't wait to see the beautiful future you will have together!
