welcoming in the New Year with this share – sweetest couple, sweetest wedding.  daniel + dena are gentle beings, so sharing their special day felt like a gentle breeze.  the way they light each other up – just darling!  they chose a vineyard venue, so the setting was absolutely incredible.  there were so many personal touches placed carefully into all the details of the day.  but my favorite was the way the danced with each other, as i requested, for those final sunset moments.  undeniable sweetness & love here!!  daniel + dena, thank you so kindly for letting me be there to witness the start of your journey together as husband + wife.  best wishes for the new year.
