This day is truly one of those days that I can promise you I will remember for the rest of my life. Many of you know Danielle Fishel by her fun loving character Topanga on the television show “Boy Meets World.” And I can tell you, she is everything you would expect her to be multiplied by a million. She is kind, humble, caring and just an overall astounding person. When I flew out to Los Angeles in July of last year I got the chance to also meet her now husband, Jensen, when we shot their engagement photos. You can see those here. He is equally wonderful. The one thing I love about these two as a couple is the way they make each other smile. It’s not just a facial reaction. It something that can make anyone looking at them together well up with love.
Their Carondelet House wedding was something dream weddings are made of. It is an intimate gorgeous venue with a small courtyard that was perfect for pre-ceremony photos. Inside, there was a stunning floral and feather structure, created by Honey & Poppies, hung from the ceiling and surrounded by bistro lights that served as a backdrop during the ceremony – truly one of a kind. Even her bouquet had hints of moody florals and feathers that brought the entire vibe of their wedding together. Candlelight everywhere only added to the romance.
Brunch, their adorable fur kid who even has his own Instagram account, @bruchservedallday, made an appearance. And the smiles of the entire bridal party by their surprise guest made for beautiful photos.
The icing on the cake? Jensen’s longtime friend and groomsmen, John Mayer, sang his cover of XO by Beyonce for their first dance, because it’s one of Danielle’s favorites.
It was a day that will go down in my life as one of the top ten.
I also have to give a huge thank you to Lisa Gaskarth of Union3 Productions, aka their wedding planner, aka one of the nicest people on the planet, who strategically coordinated such a beautiful day. Every detail was stunning. And she is also who connected Danielle and I.
As you look through these image I hope they bring a big old smile to your face as they do mine.
