It’s official…Dani & Adam are now Mr. & Mrs! Can I get a Boo Yah?!
Theirs has been a love story over 5 years in the making. They met through Adam’s brother, Derick, and Dani’s best friend, Aundie, and if you see them together you can tell they were meant to be. Adam is Dani’s yin and she his yang. Adam is quiet, thoughtful, and chooses his words carefully, using them sparingly…I can only imagine what he thought when he first met me….eeek! And, Danielle, she is super sweet, incredibly kind, thoughtful and vivacious. She’s the kind of person who when she hugs you, you know she means it. She’s a great hugger.
On the morning of the wedding, I walked into her mom’s house in Dennis, where the girls were getting ready and Dani gave me one of her hugs. It was instantly reassuring and made me even more excited to be a part of her & Adam’s special day. And, what a day it was. The weather had started off questionable, but as I had believed would be the case, the clouds parted and the sun shone through with a brightness that only Dani’s Dad, Ted, could have provided.
Tragically, Ted passed away last year and he was on everyone’s mind on the wedding day. I like to think that when our loved ones pass, they are still with us in spirit and that somehow, during pivotal moments in our life (and sometimes insignificant ones, too) they provide clear signs that they are here. The sun…and perhaps even the crazy storm that passed through later that evening, felt like gifts from Ted…love that thought!
All in all it was an amazing celebration of Dani & Adam’s beautiful love, shared with those closest to them. The ceremony took place at Holy Trinity Church in Harwich, with the reception following at the beautiful harborside Wychmere Beach Club in Harwichport. Here are some of the highlights from their love-dipped day!
Danielle loves details and I just love how she added a little fun & sparkle to her already killer blue Manolo Blahnik shoes. Sweet!! And, how about her beautiful Paloma Blanca dress. Looove!
Ted watching over the day…and the bling!
Dani’s super sweet Momma, Joyce, with flower girl extraordinaire, Georgia, who is the ridiculously adorable daughter of Dani’s cousin, the lovely Maegan, who was kind enough to refer Danielle & Adam to us! Thanks Maegan…you rock!! xo
Danielle carried rosary beads made from the flowers used at her dad’s funeral in her dress pocket, and inside the pocket, her mom had sewn in a heart-shaped piece of one of dad’s favorite shirts. Looove this!
Danielle & Adam’s Super cute wedding invitations were made by The Green Kangeroo, which ironically is located on Chatham Street….in North Carolina. The invites came in a little box, tied with ribbon and included a starfish. Sooo cool!
Putting on her earrings & shoes…looking absolutely radiant!!!
Joyce’s really cute Etsy find. Loove!
Dani & her girls…
Dani’s bouquet was wrapped in lace from her mom’s wedding dress. Sigh! And, Sweet Georgia on my mind!
Dani with her mom, Joyce, and super sweet brother, Brian. Love these guys!
Here we go….Think she’s excited? Uhhh, yeah!
Love this fun perspective Andy grabbed of Adam as he reads a card Dani gave him.

Oh, the love & joy how it did flow!
Danielle & Adam with their besties….
Very officer and a gentleman-esque no?
I don’t know what it is about this next one that I love so…blue sky, wispy clouds, American flag blowing in the breeze, American hero and his very happy new bride, wearing cool shades, walking down a worn wood beach path….what’s not to love?
Some Wychmere details.
I admit, I paired these two next photos because it made me giggle. Here’s cousin Maegan with another cousin being glamorous/silly…or dare I say a bit “cheesy.” hee hee…couldn’t resist!
Gorgeous flowers by Fancy Flowers.
Danielle & Adam’s first dance as husband & wife was highlighted by bright sun streaming in the windows….again, Ted was shining in his blessings. LOVE!
Guests & the happy couple enjoying the toasts…
I think Derick was a bit overwhelmed giving his toast, so he enlisted the help of friends, calling the other groomsmen up to the front to say a little something with him. It was a wonderful showing of love & support by all the guys! Well done, boys!
Dani & her mom share a moment on the dance floor.
The craziest looking storm clouds rolled in over Wychmere’s harbor. The wind whipped up and rain poured down and as quickly as it came, it went. It was very cool to watch!
Cutting a rug.
Danielle & Adam….thank you both so very much for not only sharing your incredible wedding day with us, but for entrusting us…with such love & kindness in your hearts…to document this day for you. We hope you enjoy this little sneak peak as much as we enjoy the two of you. Can’t wait to get together over a couple of cold ones to relive the day and hear more about your AMAZING Alaskan honeymoon! Hugs to you both! Big love, Chris & Andy xoxo
