I met Denise and Dan the week of their wedding, though I had come to know them vicariously through Denise’s mom in previous months. the night of the rehearsal dinner, hearing stories from the friends and family that love them most, and watching their sweet affection with one another, I fell in love with these two.
I told Denise’s mom last night at the viewing party that Denise reminds me of a cross between two Kennedy’s…Jackie and Carolyn Bessette. She’s classic, intelligent, elegant, poised. Dan lights up any room with ease. He is laid back, funny, and disarming. I love the way I could see how crazy they are about each other even in their differences.
Thank you guys for such a good time! Best to you in your new life in St. Louis!
the first time that I had seen the whole family help with the dress- I love it!
Jewel’s photo below…you will notice several more of hers on this post- she rocked it!
Jewel was back with Denise and her dad right before the big doors opened. This photo was especially meaningful to Denise’s mom who didn’t get to see this hidden moment of anticipation between two of her most beloved people.
