Danielle and her girls got ready at her home. After Naomi salon finished hair and makeup, Danielle got into her dress from Marielle Creations, and put on her jewelry from Touchstone Crystal. She put on her borrowed shoes, grabbed her beautiful bouquet from Agness Corr and got into the Gateway Limousine with her girls, and mother! They headed off to the Waterview in Monroe, CT for her first look!
Philip and his guys got ready at the Hampton Inn in Shelton, CT. There were a ton of guys packed into one hotel room, but they had a great time drinking, laughing, and watching sports together! After pictures of Philip getting ready, the guys got into the Gateway Limousine and also went to the venue, Waterview in Monroe.
A few weeks prior to the big day we got a phone call from Danielle. She told us how she wanted to do something that wasn’t exactly traditional. Danielle wanted us to set Philip up for the first look but have a groomsman wear a wedding dress to surprise Philip instead! And that is exactly what we did! What a HILARIOUS moment! Definitely something that everyone involved will remember for the rest of their lives! Philip was so shocked and confused at first that he almost lifted the veil!
After the fake first look we had the real romantic first look with Danielle and Philip outside on the grounds of Waterview overlooking the beautiful water! Such a sweet moment between the two of them! After that we went inside the Waterview to photograph the many family combinations that Danielle wanted. We got lots of wedding party pictures both inside and outside Waterview. Then we were able to focus on lots of GORGEOUS pictures of Danielle and Philip. Danielle wanted it all, sweet, cute, sassy, and traditional… and that’s exactly what we did, and we had a blast doing it!
The wedding ceremony was held inside of the Waterview. When Philip saw Danielle walk down the aisle he cried, it was beautiful! The JP was Danielle’s uncle which made everything even more meaningful. Her uncle talked about how Danielle and Philip met while working at a store, and how their first kiss took place in the parking lot after work. And after that, all Danielle could think about was that kiss. Time went on and Philip joined the military…. But fast forward several years and the two of them reconnected, and tied the knot at the Waterview in Monroe CT.
But the night was just beginning. The family, wedding party, and bride and groom were introduced by Donato from That’s Entertainment. Everyone got up and danced the whole night. Even the bride and groom crowd surfed! How awesome is that?? Danielle and Philip definitely had the wedding of their dreams!
