Danielle + Justin say “I Do” on Mt. Washington

Tags: , , , ,

It’s hard to write about this wedding, because it really is just a feeling. I first felt it when Danielle came into my studio to talk about her wedding, but really she just talked about Justin and her love for him. I felt it during our engagement session, when they stayed embraced in each others arms. I felt it in our planning sessions, when they spoke so sweetly about the other. 

Their wedding day was their day to celebrate them. To rejoice in being best friends, to appreciate how much they love each other’s smile, how she loves his sense of humour and how he loves how much she cares. 
The day started with them both getting ready on Mt. Washington. He was good natured, with a little extra pacing in his movement. She wavered between emotional and giddy. They both looked stunning. The moving ceremony took place with the mountains as a backdrop, under an arch made by the groom and his groomsmen. After photographs, they entered into a room of friends and family ready to celebrate them. 
Their love for each other seemed to radiate as the other couples in the room started cuddling a little bit closer, checking each other out a little longer. This was a wedding steeped in the true meaning of marriage. 
Thank you Danielle and Justin, I am just all that better off, knowing you and being inspired by your love and commitment for each other.
