Sean & Danielle | Pocahontas State Park | Wedding

I am so excited to share this wedding with all of you!  I feel like I have been counting down to this day for SO long!!  I met Danielle last June for our initial meeting to talk about her dreams for her wedding day.   Dani & Angie (Sean’s sister) were speaking straight to my heart.   Everything they said, I loved!  Danielle knew from day one that she wanted everything outside, lots of florals, and just wanted the day to be fun & carefree.  She accomplished all of that!  She and Sean had the perfect day!  The weather was gorgeous, the people were so fun, and everything they had done (and yes, I mean THEY because this was truly a DIY wedding) was perfect!  But, what I love most about their wedding was the love that went in to it.

Danielle and Sean have such a big support system backing them up in their relationship.  They both put family first.  They have been together for 7 years so they are super close with one another’s family.  They had both sets of parents, all of their siblings, and their best friends there helping every step of the way.  Their loved ones were there to make flower arrangements, put together favor boxes, string lights from the ceiling at the reception, bake the wedding cake…seriously…they did almost everything themselves!  It was truly a family affair.  That made it so special for them, though!  They had put their heart and soul in to this day and could not wait to see it all unfold.  I couldn’t either!!  The moment I walked in the salon, Danielle said, “you are going to love it!” because SHE was in love with it!  That was all the mattered to me – her happiness – but, she was right…I DID love it!

Another part of their day that they customized was their vows.  Sean and Danielle wrote their owns vows and had not read them to anyone until that moment during the ceremony.  Tears were just pouring!!  I was warned about the emotional aspect of the day, which never surprises me because I am super emotional anyway, but their love for each other is just beautiful!  I got to talk to Sean for a little while before the ceremony and he was just raving about how great Danielle was!  I already knew this but I just loved hearing him talk about her.  It brought tears to my eyes!

Then, the vows came.  They both talked about how they had grown together over the years.  How they had stood by one another through their worst times and their best.  Danielle said that she could not wait to grow old together and trace the wrinkles on Sean’s face, remembering all the wonderful times they had had over the years.  And we were SOBBING, y’all!  It was beautiful!

The entire day was beautiful, actually, and I feel like you just need to see it for yourself!  So, I am will stop my rant of happiness and let you take a look.  Go ahead and start scrolling!

Dani & Sean:  Thank you SO much for letting us be a part of your wedding day!  We love you both and had such a great time with y’all!!
