I vividly remember our first meeting together. Sitting across the table at our local Starbucks we talked about their wedding plans. Danielle is spunky, full of life, radiant. Armed with a planner & pen she was ready to dive into our meeting head first. Being a type-a person myself, I knew from the get go that we would get along. Dustin was laid back, relaxed, and let us girls do our girl-type-of-gushing. I walked away from our meeting together with my fingers crossed. I really really wanted these two.
Fast forward to after contracts, countless emails exchanged, & it was engagement session night. Anxious to see these two again I knew they would bring their A-Game and I was completely correct. These two have a love and smiles that are radiant. They're joy contagious. I'm not sure about you, but those are the best sorts of couples. I walked away from our engagement session counting down the days till their wedding. Do you see a theme here yet?
Set along the green rolling hills of The Oaks Golf Course, Danielle & Dustin said their "I Do's". Surrounded by their closest family & friends. The weather being the epitome of a perfect May day. A slight breeze, warm sun, & those big puffy clouds. It was the type of weather that anyone would hope for, for their wedding day. Danielle and Dustin radiated that same joy, relaxed, contagious happiness that they brought during our first meeting together. Their day being filled with pockets of sweetness... Take Dustin nervously adjusting his tie moments before Danielle walked down the aisle, for example. It's these little moments of love that makes you know their love is the real deal.
