Oh how I loved everything about this wedding. It started with an email from Dani saying they wanted to get married sometime this month. An elopement wedding? Yes, sign me up please! Elopement weddings don’t mean they have less meaning or purpose just because the bride didn’t spend a year harping on every detail. In fact, to me, it means far more. They didn’t need to spend a year making sure every detail was in place. They wanted to be married. They wanted to say I Do. So they choose a beautiful Thursday evening for that very thing. To become man and wife. And their evening at Paniolo Ranch was so very perfect.
Laughter while getting ready is a great way to ease your nerves.
A quiet prayer between Dani and her best friend is another.
The sweetest first look under a greenery/rose filled tunnel.
Dani was escorted down the isle by non other than her husband to be.
The very happy Mr. and Mrs. Smith!
I loved that Dani really wanted some great portraits of the two of them and gave me plenty of time to do so!
Of course I found a sun drenched field to work with!
The wind and the sun made these portraits really shine.
Back to their reception for a little cake cutting, champagne popping and laughter.
Congratulations Will and Dani! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day!
