She rounded the corner into full view of the audience. He looked on as he couldn’t contain his joy to see her- his bride, the love of his life. Their eyes locked as she took the final steps toward him. Filled with joy as her brother, the officiant, asked who gave her to be married, it was as if the world around them stopped. “You look so pretty” he mouthed to her.
The day was filled with sweet, intimate, and unforgettable moments like these. It’s not every day you come across a love like this, so passionate, and kind, and giving. Denette and Daran’s love is something real.
I’ll never forget her original email when she first inquired with me. She mentioned that they chose to forego a bigger wedding next year for a more intimate backyard wedding this year because she was just so ready to be his wife.
I’ve said this before, but when you get to know Denette and Daran, you know what it’s like to come in contact with real, live, sunshine. You know what a real taste of southern hospitality is like, right here in the middle of Southern California. You know what it’s like to feel like family from the moment you meet them. And you know what true love looks like.
Denette and Daran, it was such an honor to be with you on your wedding day. From the very first moment until the very last dance, you were nothing but kind and sweet. You tried taking care of ME, on YOUR wedding day! You two are genuinely some of the nicest and most in love people I’ve ever met. Your wedding is one that I will never forget, and will forever be so grateful for the opportunity to be with you during the most important moments of your lives. I loved every minute of it.
