Daniella and Zackery’s wedding day was nothing short of incredible. I am always so wow-ed seeing everything come together after hearing about all of the special details during the planning stages that my couple’s tell me about. Daniella sent me pictures of her dress, her cake topper, her flowers, and kept me updated with their plans, which was SO much fun and made me just that much more excited for their wedding day at Windows on the Water at Frogbridge in late July! This venue was the perfect backdrop for their love story to begin, and it was so special seeing them surrounded by all of the people who love them.
Some of my favorite details from the day was Daniella’s stunning bouquet that had an artichoke in it – my absolute favorite, the sweet typewriter note Zack had written to Daniella for her birthday that she included in her details, the groomsmen’s socks that were hysterical, the olive oil giveaways, the memorial ladder with pictures and pieces honoring their loved ones who passed away, the amazing toasts that Zack’s close friend and Daniella’s sisters made, and, of course, the father-daughter and mother-son dances that had everyone in the room tearing up (it wasn’t just me, I know it)! Ugh, there were SO many amazing moments from this day, I could go on forever! You’ll see so many unique moments as you continue scrolling, like Daniella and Zack’s foot washing ceremony as a reminder to serve one another for the rest of their lives, a guest’s solo dance to Billie Jean by Michael Jackson, and a bridesmaid’s cover of Never Enough from The Greatest Showman!
These two lovebirds met when Daniella was 12 years old and Zack was 14! She said, “he would always come to the middle school waiting for his siblings and would mess around and try to pick me up off the ground. (I guess that was his way of flirting 😂😂😂)” They had dated in high school, and although it wasn’t the right time then, they reconnecting when Zack was graduating from college three years later and their relationship was rewritten! Zack proposed earlier this year in Puerto Rico while they were traveling on a mission trip together! You can see their sweet coffee shop engagement session here for more of their story and adorable pictures! The ring is stunning, their wedding day photos are precious, but their love is the most special of them all.
One of my favorite things Daniella told me about why she values Zack is that he always gives her the best advice, makes her think from a different perspective and pushes her to get out of her comfort zone. It is so clear how well they balance one another and how proud they both are of each other. I am so excited to see their love grown and their bond strengthen even more. Daniella and Zack, thank you for having me document this unbelievably special day and milestone in your lives. I’m so thankful to have friends like you two, and to be the one who got to help you create your first memories as husband and wife! Wishing you two many more amazing years together, I love you both so much! Xoxo
