KARA-LEE & DAN ARE MARRIED!

June 23, 2015

A WOODEND SANCTUARY MARYLAND WEDDINGteal-and-citrus-woodend-sanctuary-maryland-wedding-Brett Denfeld Photography

I think Kara-Lee and Dan had every color of the rainbow at their teal, blue, and citrus Woodend Sanctuary wedding! The gals in teal, the guys in blue, and tons of bright and beautiful flowers! It was HOT but we survived! Kara-Lee and Dan met online and after some convincing, Kara-Lee decided to meet Dan for coffee at Starbucks. Coffee dates turned into dinner dates and dinner dates turned into Dan knowing he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Kara-Lee. He proposed at home with roses, champagne, and a sweet note that included everything he loved about her and when she was done reading he was down on one knee!

The men had a pretty rough morning… beer & endless games of pool… life is tough as a groomsman.

They exchanged cards and little gifts before we headed on to take bride and groom portraits! Perfume for Kara-Lee and a keychain with “always & forever” for Dan written in Kara-Lee’s handwriting.
