Two athletes met in college, he played hockey and she played volleyball. Quickly becoming friend they started dating once Shane had wrapped up his hockey season. Which thankfully eventually led them to finding me, me making them be friends with me…and this incredible day unfolded!!!
It rained liked I’ve never seen before on any other wedding day. The darkest, biggest blackest clouds rolled over the barn while Dani was getting ready – Thunder rolled out. Stress was evident, but by the time the ceremony was about to start the sun shined. And that was the theme for the rest of the day, it rained, it stopped, it poured and it stopped. They wanted their wedding to be perfectly imperfect, that was how they described their theme to me. And it was all that and more- although I’d lean more on the perfect side.
The grand entrance of their wedding party…THE . BEST. Each had their own song, walk and routine. Then Dani and Shane waltzed into the room in style – which rolled into their first dance song which was full of energy, laughing, no slow dancing in this crowd. The speeches were spot on, the best man cried more than the groom did, the love for them as individual and as a couple was so incredible. I mean I love them and I’ve only had the pleasure of knowing them through chats/emails and meeting them a couple times before the wedding. So I get it.
They wanted to read special vows to each other without anyone else around. An amazing sunset presented itself so we snuck out and had them read their vows silently. It was so amazing to document, I cried without even reading the vows. We snapped some more amazing pictures of these two….and I set them free to DANCE!!!
