Danielle and Mike are high school sweethearts. These stories are always my favorite. Life can definitely be a rollercoaster, especially as we navigate the growth of teenage years to adults. I love knowing couples who took that rollercoaster ride together in the front seat and loved ever twist, turn, climb, and even drops. After nine years together, countless dances, holidays, a pup, and much more…Danielle and Mike can finally call each other husband and wife!
A bright fall day, breezy but still warm – these high school sweethearts were married at Linganore Winecellars. Mike’s excitement brought him and his groomsmen to the venue early where they hung out in the bar of Red Shedman as Danielle was finishing up her primping. After popping a bottle of champagne with her best girls and getting her dress and jewelry on, Danielle shared a first look with her dad. Her dad gave their first look the perfect personal touch by joking that he was spotting deer in the distance before actually turning around to see his baby girl. As the ceremony began, Mike couldn’t wait to see his bride. The officiant – a good friend – helped ‘pass the time’ as the bridesmaids approached the ceremony my sharing a little football talk. When all the guests stood for Danielle to walk down the aisle, Mike leaned to his left in hopes to sneak an early peek at Danielle before she got to the aisle. Their ceremony had so many fun little parts – their dog Graham was in their bridal party, Mike ended his vows with an excited “BAM”, and they both shared a few extra gulps of their blended wine. I loved how these additions made their ceremony so unique and true to them as a whole. The party was kicked off with their sangria hour, a fun twist on the typical cocktail hour. Followed by dancing all night long with friends and family.
Congratulations Danielle & Mike Sadler!
