Haley and Danny | Darlington House Wedding

What groom spends the morning of his wedding writing “Thank You” cards?  Danny, that’s who.  I was fortunate to help fellow photographer, Lisa Riley, capture the wedding of Haley and Danny.  As a second shooter, one of my jobs to take photos of the Groom and Groomsmen as they get ready for the day!  Having three brothers myself, I always feel comfortable as just one of the guys! When I arrived at the home where the Groom was, I found him alone, in the living room, with a football game on, quietly hand-writing Thank You cards.  He mentioned that, “there are a lot of people here today that mean a lot to me.  I just want to properly thank them.”

 

And right there, I got my first glimpse into who Danny was.  He was kind, thoughtful, and someone everyone wants to be friends with.  I knew in that moment, that this was going to be an amazing day.

 

I arrived at St. Brigid’s Catholic church early and loved that Haley and Danny chose to get married at the church they’ve attended for the past year.  They also were married by the man who had been Danny’s priest since childhood.  Every aspect of their wedding was drenched in sentimental detail.  

 

Just before the ceremony, I was looking for the Wedding Coordinator, and stumbled upon my favorite part of the day!  You see, Danny is quite musical, and is the lead singer and guitarist for a band called Kid Wilderness.  Danny had written a song just for Haley!  Keeping with tradition and not wanting to see his bride before the ceremony, Danny found a door that led to the bridal suite. Propped open by two bridesmaids, Danny strummed on the guitar, and sang his heart out to his sweet Bride on the other side!  {I’m not crying, you’re crying!} It was one for the books for sure! 

 

They celebrated their love at a beautiful reception at the historic Darlington House in La Jolla, CA. The venue was beautifully decorated in white and natural greenery, enhancing the Spanish Mission flair, and giving credence to the warm spirit of Southern California. They even included their sweet dog, Stoli.  He loved seeing all of the guests, and even prayed over the dinner! It was such a treat to assist Lisa in serving these two!
