Courtney + Daniel are that unique couple that have known each other since they were little kids. Some say it was love at first sight. They met in middle school and the entire bridal party has been friends since then. The couple spoke on how hard it was choosing who would be a bridesmaid with Courtney and who would be a groomsmen with Daniel since they have all been "besties" since they can nearly remember. This bond was evident on the wedding day when everyone was hanging out, joking and having fun with each other.
The wedding ceremony was scheduled to take place on the riverfront deck at The RiverRoom with Han Hills but due to a little rain on the wedding day, we moved the ceremony inside. It worked out well to have a reception-style ceremony. Erin Whittle was hired to photograph the big day, while Brick Street Cinema was on site with their HD video camera!
Courtney + Daniel took formal photos in the alley near The RiverRoom with their bridal party after the ceremony before being introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs. by DJ David at DJ Professionals & Video. They went into their first dance, "The Idea of Growing Old" by The Features. Perfect song choice since the love birds have known each other throughout childhood and will continue to grow old together.
Courtney made the fabric flower centerpieces by cutting hundreds of satin fabric circles and strategically burning the edges together to look like fabric petals. The final product was beautiful and the time Courtney put in to make them just right was remarkable. She ordered paper bouquets from a shop on Etsy. I loved the creative touches Courtney + Daniel thought of to make their big day perfect for the two of them. I also liked the party favor - flower seeds for guests to plant at home.
After a big dinner from Middle of the Island, finishing with tasty cake from One Belle Bakery, it was time to dance! We had a great time getting to know Courtney, Daniel & their families. Congratulations you two! To forever friends -

Favorite Wedding Moment:
Seeing how cool and calm Courtney + Daniel were about switching up the wedding ceremony plan because of rain. The rain did not faze them and they had no problem doing the ceremony inside because they trusted my plan and hey, at the end of the evening, they were married!
