Danielle and Codie are two of the kindest people I have ever met. If you have had the pleasure of meeting them, I have no doubt that you share a similar opinion. On top of that, they have been my most laid-back couple so far! So, to surprise them, I decided to blog their wedding in time for them to enjoy a few photos while they are relaxing on their honeymoon.
My day started at Danielle's parents' house, where she and the bridesmaids were finishing up their final preparations. Then, we headed to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for the ceremony... which is absolutely gorgeous inside and outside! After the ceremony, we snapped a few family photos at the church, then headed to The Barn on Bridge for the reception. Their bridal party was so much fun! Danielle and Codie were completely open to suggestions for photo locations, and even agreed to adventure through some weeds, thorns, mud, and rocks, and into the creek for a few couple's shots. It was worth every second - the photos turned out great, and we shared a few laughs in the process! The reception was perfect - complete with heartwarming toasts, delicious food, strong beverages, and lots of dancing. LOTS of dancing. Danielle and Codie even demonstrated their vocal skills by leading the band during Livin' on a Prayer, while Danielle's dad played the drums! I had no idea everyone was so multi-talented!
It was hard to pick just a few photos to share! I hope you enjoy these moments from their incredible Day #1. Danielle and Codie, thank you again for allowing me the honor of being your photographer. (And big thanks to my husband for assisting me!)
