Danielle and Ryan’s Wedding

It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for a sweeter couple. Mike and I don’t take on very many weddings these days. The timing and charisma have to align exactly for us to make it work. As soon as we met Danielle and Ryan, we got really excited about getting to know them better and felt honored when they chose us to document their big day. We knew their wedding was going to be incredible, and it was, right down to the very last carefully thought-out detail. Danielle built so many personal winks into their wedding day: making sure to take photos on the porch swing she used to sit on as a little girl; the photos of loved-ones she had dangling from her bouquet; the adorable flower rings she made for all of her best girlfriends to include them in the festivities and thank them for their friendship; the beer toast in honor of her late father at the end of their ceremony. I had never been to CD&ME Special Events and Banquets before. Wow, is it stunning. The Loft space where dinner and dancing was held was outstanding, the gazebo where the ceremony took place was romantic, and the two patio spaces with fire pits and outdoor bars for guests to lounge in later in the evening were simply charming. Individually, Danielle and Ryan are two of the nicest people we’ve ever met, and together they are just extraordinary. They radiate happiness and their day was filled with joy and laughter, hugs, smiles and well-wishes. Congratulations again, Danielle and Ryan. We wish you all the best.

I wanted to do something a little different and special for this sneak peek…I hope you enjoy the slideshow. Mike and I can’t wait for our post-wedding sailing portrait session next month!

Dear Jen and Mike,

Thank you both for the sneak peak and especially for your comments regarding Danielle and Ryan. It seemed as though all the stars were in alignment that evening! The weather, the setting, the ceremony and the dinner, not to forget the little details all made it a very special event. Danielle truly glowed and Ryan was the happiest and most relaxed I’ve seen him. You did a great job of catching our son as he is, not looking posed. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures! Enjoy your sail on Vytis next month!
