When we first met Kassy and Danny, and heard about not only the beginning of their relationship, but the beautiful Private Estate Wedding that they had planned with the help of their family and friends? We knew that we had met a couple that we would love– and that we needed to capture their wedding.
As the two of them got ready for their private estate wedding, the air was full of excitement and glee over the fact the day had finally come that Kassy and Danny would get married. Their families and vendors bustling around to finish the final touches to make the day perfect, the two got up and began to get ready for the moment that they would become man and wife.
The morning started early as Kassy and her bridesmaids got their makeup and hair done by HMH Beauty, taking polaroids to self-document the moments before the ceremony. With Danny tucked away at a separate location with his friends, the two got ready alongside their bridesmaids and groomsmen, excited to see one another for the first time as Kassy walked down the aisle. Joy and laughter filling the room as they got ready to head to ceremony, they took a moment to pray alongside their closest friends and family, reflecting not only on the blessing their relationship was, but praying for their love to grow deeper and stronger throughout the future.
The one thing that we kept thinking about throughout the day? How it almost seemed like God had brought them together. Whether it was hearing from Kassy’s Uncle Glen how Kassy had once accidentally set a small fire as a child and now was marrying Danny, a firefighter who would know exactly what to do, during the ceremony or hearing how every part of their personalities seemed to complement one another during the speeches, Kassy and Danny just seemed fated to be together.
After the ceremony, we got the chance to photograph both of the families and Kassy and Danny at Lake Poway, an area that Kassy had grown up visiting. As the two families were finally alone together and able to have an intimate moment to celebrate Kassy and Danny together, there were happy tears, laughter, and a chance to rejoice their loved ones’ happiness. For the first time since the Private estate wedding began, they joined as one family, able to celebrate the two and their future happiness.
There wasn’t a single element of their wedding that didn’t seem to have a personal touch; from the venue of their reception being Kassy’s childhood home where her sisters had gotten married in the past few years to the thousand origami cranes handcrafted hanging throughout the area as a nod to Kassy’s Baba and family tradition to the cake topper featuring a fireman, every aspect was perfectly planned. As the night carried on, the dance floor at their private estate wedding was flooded with guests enjoying the night and singing along to de Bois Entertainment.
With Kassy & Danny dancing as if there wasn’t a care in the world now that they had finally become man and wife, there was hardly a moment that we didn’t see them, smiles on their faces, as they celebrated alongside their family in the backyard of Kassy’s childhood home.
To Kassy & Danny; Getting to know you two and your relationship was an incredible treat– and honor as your story is the one that reaffirms every belief that true love is real and alive, not just buried in the pages of the stories we read growing up. The way that you two complement one another, bringing out the best in the other’s personalities, is something to aspire and pray for in one’s relationship– and we have complete faith that God brought you two together. We wish you the best in your relationship, and that the slow burn that led to your love only leads to love that grows stronger and deeper every day.
