Brad + Danielle + Reese + Caine + Heath

Brad and Danielle exchanged vows this summer at their home and their neighborhood lake.  It was a small, intimate affair that was juuuuust about perfect (except for, you know, flower and cake disasters and 100 degree weather...small things ;-)).  But seriously, they've built such an awesome life together, this ceremony was just icing on their already yummy cake!  

This is the sign that I saw when I walked up to their front door.  And having watched Dani plan this wedding through her posts on Facebook and Instagram, I knew she really meant it.  Family and friends are so important, and that's just how they do life... with their friends and family by their side (if not right in the mix of it all)!  ;-) 

I loved these favors!  "we're kind of a big dill"  I meant to grab one for myself, and completely forgot (*hint, hint*)  ha!

Momma and her boys.  They wore their suits just for her, and took several pictures JUST FOR HER, because we all know they didn't really want to do either!  Good sons ;-)

Love that photo on the right with all the boys and "Brad Dad." 

Groom and HIS mom! 

Danielle never got an official proposal, so when Caine walked down the aisle he told Brad, "I think you forgot something" and handed him Danielle's ring.  Brad walked UP the aisle to Danielle and proposed to her right then and there.  It was completely unexpected and caught her a little bit off guard, as evidenced by the tears :-)  And just look at how he LOOKS at her!!  Aaahhh!

I don't know if my favorite thing about this picture is the kiss or the boys faces!! 

So quick side note.  One thing that intrigues me so much about Danielle is how she just has no qualms walking up to someone and dead pan telling them something that is completely incorrect, just to see their reaction.  And I mean, she lets the awkwardness sit for a while before she will ever fess up to joking with them (if she ever does)!  I could NEVER!  haha!!  

So we walked up to the golf clubhouse and they were having a costume party for someone's birthday, and Danielle's yelling at folks that they won't let her in because she wore the wrong costume, and I'm looking for somewhere to hide.  Ha!!  But after all that, we had to get a picture with these lovely folks, because WHY NOT?!!  

Danielle and Brad (and Reese, Caine, Heath *and Pierce*) - Can't wait to watch your family continue to grow!  You guys are killing it at this whole fun family thing, so just keep doing you and I know I'll keep getting new stories to tell each time I photograph you :-)  Love you all!  xoxo
