Where do I start with Danielle & Joe?
I consulted with Danielle & Joe couple of years back in my home office when they first inquired about my services. You can tell right away that Danielle made "photography" one of the important parts of her big day, I loved that. I cannot stress how important photography is on anyone's wedding day. After all of the booze is gone, the cake has been eaten, the music goes in through one ear and out the other. All you will have left is your partner and your photos to cherish forever.
Danielle was planning for an extravaganza, (that's her style!) Lol. She always kept communication with me and we always went back and forth on updating details for her wedding and discussing what were good/bad ideas and so on.
Fast forward and we are now about two months out from this huge wedding. It was a very tragic morning when I received a text from Danielle, letting me know that her father has passed away. Someone who was so special to her and she cannot see herself walking down the isle without. - It hit me hard to hear such terrible news. I was worried that she might cancel the wedding, which with all due respect, can be done if she truly wanted to. I did not want that for her. All of the planning, all of the stress, Danielle and Joe have come a very long way thru-ought this entire process. I would hate to see anyone cancel their wedding. After some time, they decided to host a smaller much more intimate wedding.
Here we are, a sunny Saturday June 9th 2018 at The gorgeous Owera Vineyards in Cazenovia New York. A prep room full of Bridesmaids, Makeup Artists and Dresses and Danielle glowing and as happy as she can be. One of the things that helps keep a day going smooth for both the Bride & Groom, is a great support system in your wedding party. They definitely had a great support system. Surrounded by mostly friends and family, the wedding party was full of love and laughter. They had jokes and all of us combined had some "inside jokes" throughout the night. Under the event tent at the Vineyard, Envison Entertainment had the crowd on their feet with hands in the air. There was never a dull moment on the dance floor.
To see a Bride get married to her partner in love, and be full of smiles all day is good. Love was in the air and happiness was captured. Danielle got photos she's wanted, the man she loves and a family bond, nothing can break. View the day behind my lens, and you will see for yourself.
To Mrs. & Mr. Cepero!
