They’re the kind of people who welcomes you in. Open arms, lots of hugs, and every word that is spoken resonates with sincerity. While weddings are the joining of two families, for Nick and Danielle, it was the celebration of a family that was already joined, already tied together.

I love when brides and grooms choose venues that hold a special place in their heart and has a story behind it. Nick and Danielle exchanged their vows at Pasadena Community Church, where Nick’s grandparents were married. With friends and family present, they promised to love and encourage one another through the ever changing waves that life offers. In good times and hard times for the rest of their lives. They spent the rest of the night completely immersed in each other’s presence, dancing the night away at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom. The very place where Danielle’s great grandparents met.

Nick + Danielle, thank you for sharing a piece of your journey with James and I. It’s another chapter for your story and we feel so blessed to be the ones to have documented it.

I am completely smitten by this vendor list, guys. Each and every one were dedicated to creating a beautiful experience for the two of them and their family. It was an honor to work alongside such an amazing team! Also, below are a few favorites from their day. Enjoy!
