Daniel and Dominique were married back on May 26, 2018 and it was the most gorgeous spring day we could have hoped for! Everything from the venue, to the details, to the dress, to the sweetest couple ever, was a dream!
Domi and the ladies had the Chateau du Lac Bed and Breakfast all to themselves for getting ready. The grounds in back were breathtaking and the perfect backdrop for Dan and Domi’s first look and some formal portraits. Capturing the emotions of these two when they first saw each other was so beautiful! They were just so excited to finally be getting married!
I always love when couples incorporate special family heirlooms into their wedding day. Dominique wore a headpiece that was her grandmother’s and has been worn by generations since! She also had her grandmother’s beautiful handkerchief as well as photos of her grandfather in a locket tied around her bouquet. Daniel had an incredible pocket watch that had belonged to his grandfather!
Their intimate wedding ceremony was held in one of the gorgeous gardens at Tower Hill Botanic Center. What an incredible location and the setting sun made everything glow! Domi and Dan have known each other since they were kids and there weren’t many dry eyes as they said their vows to each other. It was clear to all in attendance the love they have for each other.
Following the ceremony guests walked through the gardens to one of the courtyards for cocktail hour. The reception was held in a gorgeous brick and glass greenhouse! Tower Hill is seriously one of my favorite venues ever! I couldn’t get over how incredible it was, not to mention the beautiful design and execution by Cristen & Co.!
After some moments to themselves, taking in the sweeping views of the sunset, Daniel and Dominique were introduced into the reception to the cheers of their family and friends. Their first dance was so sweet as they whispered and laughed together. I loved Dominique and her mom’s playful dance to Queen’s You’re My Best Friend, which Dominique surprised her with!
Friends and family enjoyed a delicious dinner and an incredible dessert spread before dancing the night away! The groomsmen had everyone in stitches as they serenaded the groom with a hilarious rendition of The Backstreet Boys’ I Want it That Way. Too funny!
Daniel and Dominique, I wish the two of you nothing but the best! It was such a pleasure being there to document your first official day as a family! Congratulations!
