Danny + Shelby Sneak Peek // Ellis Ranch Wedding
I just can't believe that Danny and Shelby are married. This was a great Ellis Ranch wedding! One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is that you get to re-connect with people that you have known in your life. This was a really special wedding because I've known Danny and his family since I was I think about 4-years old. My first memory of Danny was standing in a parking lot and he was picking weeds out of the cracks of the pavement. Isn't it funny what you remember? I mean, so many things in life happen and for this to be a memory that is so engrained in my head is amazing. We also went to high school together and were involved in the same church growing up, so for years he was very present in my life. Because we grew up together, I knew several people at the wedding which was also just fun.
When I met Shelby this last year, I was so thankful that Danny had found her. Her smile and her energy is so contagious, and she keeps that boy on his toes!! She's also a huntin', fishin', outdoor lovin' lady, which is the perfect compliment for Danny. On an even more exciting note, they will be welcoming their own little boy into the world in just a few short months. I have no doubt that they will both make amazing parents. They are sweet, tough and fiercely loyal people; so their son is going to be on amazing kid.
As for the wedding day, it was beautiful. We couldn't have asked for a better day in April, and even the wind died down when we were outside. There was a lot of laughter, several Marines and veterans, family and friends and just a whole lotta' love. Congrats, Danny & Shelby! Love you guys and can't wait for your baby boy!!
