Dani has to be my most laid back bride when it comes to wedding planning. Throughout the entire process, she was so relaxed, and simply wanted to let the day roll out as it may, and spend the day celebrating and hanging out with her close family and friends. Both Dani & Alan simply spent the day being 100% calm, cool, and collected, and Josh and I enjoyed every second, despite the rain threatening our original plans (what is with rain only falling on Fridays and Saturdays this year?). I started my day off with Dani and all of the special ladies in her life, including Alan’s mom and sister at the W hotel, then heading off to Cinquecento, which is officially now one of my favorite wedding venues! This restaurant has such a sophisticated and swanky vibe, and food that not only tastes absolutely delicious, but looks and smells just as amazing. Colleen and her team made sure everyone were taken care of, and were absolutely wonderful to work with. But I am getting ahead of myself – let’s get back to some images of the day!
Dani’s dress was stunning, and fit her perfectly – I knew Alan was going to be so excited to see how absolutely amazing she looked!
Even though the rain decided not to hold off, we kept everyone covered just outside Cinquecento, while Josh protected me from the rain (and oncoming traffic).
With all of our formal portrait time over, it was time to head into the ceremony!
Everyone was all smiles when it was time to join cocktail hour and officially start celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs.
(I told you how delicious the food looks! My mouth is watering again…)
I love that Dani’s un-bridesmaids perfectly coordinated, completely unplanned.
Cinquecento has such a warm and inviting feel. The moment you walk into their space, you know it’s going to be good.
After some super sweet toasts, a little bit of dancing, and an amazing dinner, we made one last portrait before Josh and I said our goodnight.
