You know those weddings that are so much fun, you forget you are working and think you are one of the guests because of all the smiling and laughing? That was absolutely my experience working with Danielle and Jacob on their wedding day.
Both of them come from devout Catholic families, and so the ceremony of the sacrament of marriage was so meaningful to everyone. What a beautiful way to join together and begin their new life as a family.
Both Danielle and Jacob are also very family oriented and celebrating with family and friends was so key to what they wanted their wedding to include. Jacob’s family is the Leatherby family, owners of the most amazing ice cream and sandwich joint in town, Leatherby’s Family Creamery, so of course they featured a spectacular ice cream bar at the wedding. Before the traditional bouquet toss, there was a candy toss just for the children in attendance – so fun and thoughtful they weren’t left out of this element. The bridal party did a surprise flash mob for Danielle and Jacob. There was so much love for these guys and so many amazing photos and memories!!
During the reception, both Danielle and Jacob were able to have an amazing time on the dance floor. She shared how extremely important dancing is to them – and she added they couldn’t wait to brush out the moves they had been holding in for the last year! I love what a compliment to each other they are: he is shy and she is outgoing and they are an amazing match. She brings out the happy in him and she fits in with his big crazy family perfectly.
We had so much fun on Jacob and Danielle’s big day! Being their Sacramento Catholic Wedding Photographer was such a joy. Best wishes for a bright future, you two!
