Although their wedding day has come and gone, Danica and Paul’s Martin’s West wedding was truly a memorable, spectacular event!
I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful couple in 2017 while documenting their newest milestone at a fall engagement session. The two have known each other since their elementary school years, but neither knew their connection would turn into a love that would last a lifetime.
Danica and Paul’s wedding day began in the early morning with the bride and groom enjoying company with their wedding party to prepare for their big day. Danica and her bridesmaids looked stunning in their flowing blush dresses – the perfect compliment to the bride’s gorgeous fit and flare gown. Prior to their ceremony, Danica and Paul chose to hold an intimate first look together. The moment they shared was magical, as Paul was absolutely amazed by his bride! After a few short moments together, the couple was ready to make things official with friends and family.
Guests to this Martin’s West wedding were invited to an outdoor ceremony amongst the property. The ceremony was held under a grand tree coupled with a trellis decorated with soft florals and lush greenery. Led by an adorable flower girl and ring bearer, Danica graced the aisle towards her groom. This rustic ceremony was full of love and family tradition, and all in attendance were grateful to witness the love they shared.
In the mid afternoon, guests were invited to a cocktail hour and reception inside the venue. To honor their families, Danica and Paul briefly swapped their modern wedding attire for Hanbok, traditional Korean clothing that is beautifully made with vibrant colors. The couple placed much emphasis on their family and friends through the decor of their reception; for instance, each table was personalized with a menu, small gift, and delicately placed greenery. The ballroom was filled with touches of gold and blush accents with every detail thoughtfully planned. This joyous evening consisted of a delicious meal, heartfelt toasts, lively dancing, and of course, the unbreakable love of Danica and Paul.
After their incredible wedding, the couple set off for a Caribbean honeymoon in St. Lucia. During their new marriage, they are excited to begin establishing a life together, including the simple things like sweet “good mornings” in a new home and growing older together. Danica and Paul have been wonderful to work with, and I cannot wait to see how their love story continues!
