I feel so lucky to call Russell and Danielle my friends. They are incredibly kind, caring people, and even more than that, they are so sweet and loving to each other! Starting their adventure through life together 11 plus years back in high school, these sweethearts have come a long way, they recently became parents to a beautiful baby girl, Skylar, and now husband and wife! They are extremely proud and dedicated to what they do, to each other, and to their new little family. It’s been wonderful to see their journey together, and I am so excited to see what other wonderful things their future will hold!
Their wedding was held at the Hart’s Hill Inn, and while the garden ceremony and reception hall was being transformed with gorgeous bouquets of red roses and lily’s, Tom and I were spending the morning with Russ and Danielle along with rest of their wedding party! Even if sweet baby Skylar was sleeping all morning, everyone else was running about with us as we took the trek down the street to Delta Lake for photos! Danielle and Russell were all smiles during their individual portraits, and it was clear to see they couldn’t wait to be in each other’s arms! Finally when that moment came, it was as sweet as I could have imagined, as they stood blushing under the altar, and sniffling their way through vows. They pledged their lives together surrounded by friends and family, as the sun was setting. The reception was filled with so much love and happiness, and I loved how true to themselves they stayed, sharing their first dance to a song from Russell’s favorite band! Delicious food, wonderful music, and warm conversations kept the party going until late into the night. Plus, I can’t forget to mention the cake cutting…or should I say cake war, I’m sure they are still blowing it out their noses! With Russell and Danielle, I can always count on a good laugh, and lot’s of fun! That’s exactly what the day was, and I was so happy to be a part of it, not only as their photographer, but as their friend!
Congratulations Danielle and Russ! I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am for you both, you deserve the best!
