Danielle and Kevin | Backyard Wedding Rockford, Michigan

Danielle and Kevin were wed on the biggest wedding day of the year, 8.18.18, in the backyard of Danielle’s mother’s home. Such a beautiful day. My favorite moment from this day was for sure the first look, they had warned me they were likely to be emotional but you could feel it before you even saw it on their faces. So much love for each other. It was such an honor to capture their day.
Congrats Danielle and Kevin! Thank you for letting me be a part of your day!
