santa ana engagement | danielle + mikeJune 2, 2010

There won’t be a couture gown, elaborate flowers, or designer suits at their wedding and they wouldn’t want it any other way.  Danielle and Mike are special and the two of them represents the true essence of marriage.  Their wedding will be a wedding stripped down to it’s core meaning…marriage and a lifetime of being a family.

Danielle and Mike are both residents at the Orange County Rescue Mission.  They are living in two different facilities now because they are not married.  Their wish is to finish their programs at the Mission together as a family and I couldn’t be happier to help make it happen. Michelle of Mele Amore Events and I met with Danielle and Mike for their consultation and were both brought to tears by the way Mike talked about Danielle and their family.  They are extraordinary people and we look forward to their wedding at the OC Rescue Mission this August.   Here is my first black and white only engagement session per the couple’s request.

If you are a vendor and would also like to donate your services for this wedding, please shoot me an email.

Here is the beautiful family…Danielle, Mike, Bronx, and Liberty.
