We couldn’t have been more excited to photograph Charlotte + Daniel’s wedding at the always amazing Log House Garden this summer. We love weddings where there is tons of emotion, laughter, and love and this one had it all and then some! Charlotte & Daniel are beautiful people both inside and out and share a love like no other. Spend 10 minutes with them and you’ll see it. As a bonus, Daniel is into photography and uses a really cool old medium format camera (see photo below). He even brought it to the wedding and took some photos of his own of Charlotte. How cool is that!? Check out their story below!
At the age we met, love wasn’t really on my mind. However we made a great pair even then, she laughed at EVERYTHING I said (in her defense she claims I was a lot funnier back then..) so naturally I enjoyed spending time with her! As we grew older I started to think of Charlotte as more than a friend… In the sixth grade, on my thirteenth birthday I told Charlotte, “I really like you, and I was wondering if you liked me back? It’s okay, you can give me an answer on monday, you don’t have to answer me now” Sure enough, Charlotte took the extra time I gave her to think about how she could explain to me that we were only twelve and thirteen years old. Come monday, she told me we were too young to be boyfriend and girlfriend, but that she liked me as a friend. After sixth grade was over, we went to different schools for middle school and high school. During high school, a friend of mine bugged me daily to get a girlfriend (his girlfriend wanted someone to go on double dates with) and after a certain amount of time I had cracked and gave in. The next step was trying to figure out who in the world I would start talking to, let alone start dating, After I thought about all the girls I knew, I realized there was only one girl that I knew who wasn’t annoying and that i knew i could spend hours with. I gave Charlotte a call, and asked what she was doing. After a brief phone call we decided we would go get some cake and coffee the next day. The rest is history really, I fell in love with Charlotte again that night. The hardest thing then was just trying to keep my cool, so she wouldn’t realize that I was absolutely in love with her. Four and a half years later, I got to see that same girl I fell in love with twice, walk down the aisle as the most beautiful bride in the world.
I was only ten years old the first time I had thought Daniel could be the one. I can remember thinking that if I had to spend everyday of my life with someone it could only be Daniel. Even then I was able to sense that Daniel and I shared a strong connection. As we grew older, our childhood friendship grew into a crush and eventually turned to love. When we found out that we were going to have a baby our first year of college it was terrifying and exciting time. We grew so much during that period in lives, and although it was unexpected the birth of our daughter brought us closer together than ever. Watching Daniel become a great father and a great man left no doubt in my mind that he was the one.
I put laundry baskets in every place Daniel could possibly change his clothes, yet when it’s time to do laundry I find his clothes everywhere but in the actual laundry basket!
