Reed + Dani are the sweetest couple who have been through a lot over the last 2 years when it comes to their wedding. Not only did they have to postpone a number of times and work with family and friends who lives states away, they also had to deal with me being on maternity leave during their second date. But let me tell you, they handled everything beautifully and with so much grace, always having a smile on their faces. It was an absolute joy to get to work with them and see how they handled the chaos of planning a wedding during a pandemic. This was actually their second wedding day that occurred exactly one year after they got married in an intimate wedding ceremony. I had the pleasure of photographing that event HERE and then my good friend Abbey got to photograph their reception date with all of their friends and family present. Even though I wasn’t there in person, I loved getting to edit each of the images and relive the day virtually.
Things I loved about this wedding: it was another beautiful day at Mustard Seed Gardens for Reed + Dani with beautiful light and stunning grounds. The bride got to wear her dress again which honestly, is kind of great and an added bonus of having 2 wedding days! The bridal party portraits were so fun and all the guests looked like they had a blast at the reception. I am so happy for Dani + Reed. They finally got to celebrate their vows in front of all their family and friends and share in the joy of becoming husband and wife. I have loved working with them (even from a distance) and can’t wait for you all to see their 2nd wedding day this time with a reception and filled with all their friends and family!
