This wedding is so special to us and I don’t even know where to start. When we moved to Virginia 5 years ago we didn’t know what to expect. But slowly, we started to get to know people, and Danielle was one of those first people we met. She was also one of our first senior sessions after moving here. And I’ll never forget the day of her last high school chorus concert– it was the same day we found out we were pregnant back in 2011.
Over the years Danielle has dined at our house, babysat our daughter, and shared all the latest boy news in her life. Josh and I became just a tad bit protective of her. So when she started telling us about this Jarod guy who played football for ODU, we were skeptical. Could anyone be good enough to marry Danielle? This Jarod guy would definitely have to prove himself!
And so he did. He’s loved her, protected her, and… well, just look at the way he looks at her! We’re so thankful that these two met each other, and were totally honored to photograph their wedding! Oh… and did we mention that our daughter was the flower girl? She’s been looking forward to this role for almost a year and nailed it pretty well. She got close and comfy with the ring bearer all day and they had a good time!
