Danielle + Geoff Wedding: San Diego Botanical Gardens
This wedding really was so special for me to photograph. Geoff and Sean met in the 1st grade and have remained best friends ever since. I can't tell you how many reckless stories I've heard of the two. Many of these stories not suitable for my PG-rated website so I'll refrain from explaining them. But they're the kind of stories that tell you just how great and undeniably close their friendship really is. But the real love story here is of course when Danielle entered Geoff's life so unexpectedly yet with so much purpose than anyone ever initially expected.
Geoff moved from Colorado to Newport Beach, California soon after graduating college and very easily adapted and fell in love with the beach lifestyle and surfing culture. It was in Newport where Geoff first met Danielle through his neighbor, Taylour. Taylour and Danielle had relocated together from New Jersey for a sunny and happenin' California. Of course, fate took it's course and Danielle and Geoff soon began dating despite Taylour's warning to Danielle that he was "not boyfriend material." The two fell in love and with time learned they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Forever.
Danielle and Geoff chose to have their wedding at the beautiful San Diego Botanical Gardens which fit their personalities so perfectly. Danielle and her dear friends planned everything on their own. And might I add, so perfectly. If something doesn't go right, it'll be okay. Just go with it she said right before the start of her ceremony. And that's exactly who she is--the most sweetest, kindest, laid-back person you'll ever meet. Their ceremony was so very magical thanks to Taylour, who despite his earlier misjudgement ended up officiating the wedding and married the two. But that's just it. That's why this story is so magical. Geoff saw something in Danielle that changed him in the best ways possible. He was not only "boyfriend material" but now "husband material." Their love story proves that what was meant to be will always find it's way.
Thank you, Danielle and Geoff for giving me the opportunity to capture the love the two of you share. I can't wait to see what life has in store for you guys and Sean and I are so excited that we get to be apart of your journey together forever and ever. Wishing you all the best.
Hannah and Sean
