Her mom helped Danielle with the finishing touches.

And it was sweet when Danielle gave her Dad a gift before the ceremony, everyone in the room teared up a bit.

Patrick and his family were a lot of fun to photograph. 🙂

I loved taking Danielle out for photos, her wedding colors were so soft and pretty, and it was perfect for photos in the Brisa Courtyard.

Danielle and Patrick had a blind first look, they were so sweet together. They read letters they’d prepared for each other and smiled and laughed and cried.

Their Disney Wedding Reception was in the Sequioa Ballroom of the Grand Californian Hotel. I loved the uplighting and the entrance to the room, it really looked beautiful.

I loved it when Danielle’s Maid of Honor talked about how they met because of coffee, and so she had one of the Disney servers pour Patrick a cup of coffee to welcome him officially into the family. 🙂
