David and Danielle – Shadow Creek Weddings & Events Photographer

“she smiles and he makes a joke about her freckles
and for miles they drive, singing love songs all the way
feet up on the dashboard
leaving footprints on the glass
it’s just another day in love.”

Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross01david and danielle are the definition of what it means to love intentionally. even as we talked through all the details of their day, it seemed that they had truly thought through every tiny piece but specifically how each piece could honor someone else. the colors of their wedding, their vows, the music, the jewelry, the glasses, the cake topper, the wedding party… truly every TINY piece was meaningful. there was nothing chosen just because it was what you were “supposed” to do, or because it pretty or convenient, it was all intentional. they were there to celebrate their relationship, yes, but to make sure that all of their favorite people knew just how loved and cherished THEY were to dave and danielle. they’re pretty incredible, just so ya know :)Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross05they each had small notebooks with their vows written in them, one of danielle’s promises being to raise their children in a home full of music and home cooked meals. did i mention that he’s a musician and she’s a chef? :) love love love. Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross06Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross10Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross15the bridal suite at shadow creek is completely swoon worthy! Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross16Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross31Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross34Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross42this is bobby, dave’s oldest friend and co-best man :)Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross46Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross53Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross56Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross63Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross69Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross78Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross80danielle had written each of her bridesmaids a thoughtful, handwritten letter that had each of them in tears!Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross160Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross173Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross179Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross215Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross217Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross221Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross232Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross242Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross246Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross256Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross257Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross265Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross330Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross334Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross342Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross366Shadow_Creek_Wedding_Purcellville_VA_Photographer_Gross374how adorable are these two boys?!
