What a magical gray and blush wedding Danyella and Justin (and her daughter Alivia) created at Villa Siena. Danyella was definitely one of the most chill brides I have ever had (even tho I had Justin’s name wrong!!) and it was so obvious that Justin is head-over-heals for her. The two decided to do a first look and are so happy they did (cause they were able to get so many more photos of the two of them). What sticks with me tho… the way they let every moment fill their hearts and their minds. During the first look, Just made a point to check out every detail of Danyella’s gown and accessories. Checking the back of the gown, the train, the lace work on her veil to her earrings and down to her shoes! I just know he doesn’t NEED these photos cause they way she looked is permanently in his mind!!
Danyella and Justin met in November of 2010 while both working at the Keg Steakhouse. Justin was immediately attracted to her and went out of his way to talk to her and it wasn’t long before he was inviting to hang out. After a week or so of Justin courting her, she accepted his invitation and before they knew it Justin and Danyella were dating. She understood him like no one ever had and he made her laugh… and with Justin around she was able to laugh at herself, After four years of dating, they took some time to find themselves and their journey of self-discovery brought them back together at a car wash. They both felt the butterflies of romance and they talked and talked then before they knew it, Danyella and Justin had spent over eight hours that day talking to each other and a deep love was unlocked inside them both. It was the most amazing conversation either had ever had and they found themselves back in each others lives full-time. One night while at his parent’s house, Justin and Danyella were looking at his parent’s wedding album. It was a romantic night and they talked about life and marriage. While sitting in the car outside afterward Justin said to her, I don’t want to wait until I have a ring for you. I want to be engaged to you now. They didn’t just announce to the world that they were together, the announcement was that they were engaged to be together forever! One day while out shopping and running errands, Danyella and Justin found themselves standing outside of a jewelry store and Justin decided it was time, but he didn’t give it to her right away. They shared a special weekend first and then began to plan for today!
Danyella and Justin, Congratulations to you both. Thank you for allowing me to spend the day with you,your family and friends!! I wish you all the best! Big Hugs!!
