Danielle and Joel, two of the most fun people you will ever get the chance to meet! Their love story is so good too. They met through a mutual friend and as a group went to Chili's one night, essentially a blind date. A month later they started dating.

Fast forward to the proposal.

Danielle was on a girls trip in Chicago to visit a college friend. The girls were walking through Oz Park, when strolling towards them is Joel! He drove all the way to Chicago for one epic surprise. He then gets down on one knee and asked Danielle to marry him! Danielle was SO caught off guard that he was even there, her friends (in on the surprise) crying tears of happiness for them. Joel drove home that same day, now THAT'S a girls weekend she will never forget. 

I'm so thankful that we have the joy of capturing such fun couples on their wedding day. That we get to know them and spend time with them for sometimes over a year before thier wedding. Danielle and Joel's day was nothing short of magical and we are so happy for them, truly. They started as clients, and now we call them friends. Here is a peek into their Great Gatspy Inspired wedding day!
