If you asked us to sum up Danielle and Mike’s Wedding at the Hill in Hudson, I would say that it was whirlwind of happy tears, inside jokes, friends, family and tons and tons of laughter! Like so many of our love stories, Danielle and Mike have been together for several years (like 9) and you can imagine how excited everyone was for this wedding. Thus the epic #finallyMichielini. In just 6 short months, our rock star Bride, Planner, and Detail Diva, Danielle whipped up this wedding to perfection. 90% of all the wedding items she made by hand – this brings a whole new level to a DIY Wedding. The menu cards, centerpieces, signs, bouquets – yep she did it all including setting all the tables at the reception. There was not one single item out of place and we often joked that she will join the YTK team as an in house wedding planner when she gets tired of her current job. We had the most stunning venue, The Hill in Hudson with a beautiful barn, private wedding cottage, and those gorgeous horses! We were so lucky that Danielle and Mike did a first look because we had some serious rain on this wedding day. They say that rain on your wedding is good luck. This is because water helps things grow, the concept behind that statement is that rain will make a marriage grow stronger, and for your family to be blessed with children. Marriages that happen on a rainy day are considered to be blessed with good fortune. We couldn’t agree more. Danielle and Mike are so blessed with so much love for each other, for such amazing families who simply adore them and for some spectacular friends. Our team spent most of the day tearing up along with everyone else, from Danielle’s first look with her Dad, to their vows, to the special song Danielle had performed in honor of her mother. This was quite a magical day and having the rain just pulled everyone in closer together.
These are Grandma’s hands. She crocheted these doilies for the wedding. 180 in total – one for every guest that was put with their menu card. We often get sunset photos at our weddings but we rarely get fog. These misty romantic images are just to die for!
