Every love story has that one aspect, that one moment, that makes it completely unique from the one before it. There are no two alike anywhere in the world, making them each utterly precious and endlessly priceless. This, my friends, happens to be one of those stories. From Valentines Day Surprise Proposal to their Rustic Chic Summer Wedding, these two have a love story that inspires.
Danielle and Mike are adorable adventurers. If you missed their story that I shared in their engagement session post, it’s adorable. She walked across the room, compelled to introduce herself. Unable to wait a week for their first date, Mike visited Danielle every day just to have lunch together. He still calls her on his lunch break. Their proposal story, though incredibly sweet, was very adventurous. Accustomed to taking portaging trips and back country camping, the Valentines Day trek in the snow up to a cliff in Algonquin park where Mike asked Danielle to be his wife was the adventure to eclipse all others. They wrote their own wedding vows, and were totally cool to lay down in thistles and tall grass in full wedding attire for photos. In fact, it was the bride’s idea. See what I mean? Adorable adventurers.
Their wedding day was perfectly them: full of memories of adventures past in the form of beautiful wooden signs and elegant calligraphy, treasured photographs framing the cocktail lounge, keepsake paddles for their guests to sign and golden brushed evergreens delicately drawn on the seating chart. It was also full of laughter and love. Whether it was dad in an outrageous sun hat, laughing with the bridesmaids, catching Mike and Dee making contorted faces at each other and bursting into giggles, seeing those smiles they save only for each other, or holding back tears during the first dance, this day, all day long, was perfectly them. Right down to the hashtag.
Never stop searching for the next adventure <3
