Danielle + Shawn | John James Audubon

I walked into Danielle's hotel room to squeels as I finally put faces to some of the sweet people Danielle had told me all about! (Her mother, Mother in law and sweet bridesmaids!) We exchanged names and hugs, and I immediately felt we were the best of friends!

Day's that begin like that are all this connection loving photographer can ask for! Moments later I was hanging Danielle's Beautiful dress at the amazing John James Audubon Center. Roaming this timeless venue, it was so evident why her and Shawn wanted to have their wedding day here!

The guys arrived and we laughed, you wouldn't know it was a hot humid day with the joy they had as Shawn laughed with his best buds! Danielle and her girls looked absolutely radiant and we all were squealing as she put on her dress! Her grandmother put on Danielle's shoes, and we were all wiping tears from our eyes because it was THE sweetest.

The rain came, but Danielle and Shawn laughed it off with their family and friends as we gathered into the barn for a backup plan with the rain. There were 15 seats for family and the rest of their loved ones stood all along the barn as they said their vows. Everyone laughed, and celebrated alongside Danielle and Shawn as the rain came pouring down. (literally)

They ended the night with dusk portraits kissing and laughing, and then dancing their faces off with their friends and family!

We left this day not with two new friends, but a whole family of new friends. Everyone welcomed us with open arms, and we fell in love with these beautiful people even more! Their day was one for the books, making me even MORE thankful to connect with souls and do what I love through photography.

I'm having a tough time choosing a few favorites, because their day was gorgeous - but here's my top hundred or so from their day!

Leave these two love! If they get 25 comments on this blog post, they will receive a complimentary 8×10″ print of their favorite wedding day image! Hooray!
