Danielle and Mike’s Independence Golf Club wedding was a wild, wonderful time! From the minute I saw the bridesmaids step off their bus, I knew they were ready to get the party started. And party they did – dancing the night away, riding in golf carts, and popping champagne with their best friends!
These two both went to JMU, but it wasn’t until post-grad that they got to know one another. When Danielle started a new job as an accountant, she immediately recognized Mike (her new BOSS!) from college. After spending too many hours together at work, they started dating and the rest is history.
I loved that their mid-September Independence Golf Club wedding day was equal parts fancy AND fun. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous light blue gowns and their bouquets had pretty pops of coral. Danielle sported classy Bella Bella bridal pumps for the ceremony, then changed into customized Converse for the reception. Their cake was a traditional white wedding cake, but they did something different for favors: scratch-off for the lucky guests.
Danielle also gifted each of her bridesmaids a pair of pink Vans sneakers to change into for the reception, so they had no excuse not to be on their feet! Not that they would have wanted an excuse – the dance floor was packed and poppin’ all night with help from Level Up Entertainment.
This was such a fun one, and I’m so glad I got to capture all the action. Thank you, Danielle and Mike! Cheers to the Chelenas!!
