VanDusen Gardens Wedding: David & Danielle

We knew from the initial emails with Danielle that we were going to love these two! She was so charming and funny in her emails and it showed even more so on her wedding day! These two are the real deal!! This was a wedding even that looked like it was out of a magazine!! David and his groomsmen got ready in their hotel room that was on the opposite side of the hotel as the girl’s penthouse suite and we were grateful to be behind the scenes to capture the anticipation of both of them!

The common theme throughout the day was how much thought and love was poured into every little detail!

Mika & Faye with ‘Mika Does Makeup’ did an amazing job as usual with the make up and hair!! We LOVE working with them!!

Matt now has some very tough competition with being the most romantic guy in the world!! David had us all in tears as as Danielle read the most amazing letter ever! To top it off she opened his gift of a carved out wooden plaque with the words of their first dance!

Danielle’s mom was a florist so she made sure everything looked amazing!! The girls sewed the beautiful cloth napkins, David and Danielle put so much care into the little wooden chalkboard name cards and they even had a custom made envelope of seeds to fit perfectly with their theme!
