Winter Belvedere Wedding | Baltimore, MD | Dani + Bryce

January 3, 2018 Winter Belvedere Wedding | Baltimore, MD | Dani + Bryce

Danielle and Bryce’s winter Belvedere wedding in Baltimore was everything I wanted for them and more. I’m so excited to share some of my favorites on the blog today!

The Couple

I absolutely love these two and their amazing story! As told by the bride, their love story is shared below, and if you’ve seen their engagement session previously, you’ll have seen the book referenced in this!

“Dani and Bryce met in 2008 at the ripe, young age of 15 in their 10th grade Honors English class in Bel Air, Maryland (that location is important later in the story). One could say it was the classic story of boy meets girl: girl drops pencil; boy turns around to pick it up; their eyes meet; they smile at one another; their hearts skip a beat; time stops…

…except ultimately, it was more like this: girl notices cute new boy from Texas in class; girl wants cute new boy to notice her; girl decides to “accidentally drop” [read: purposefully toss] her pencil by cute new boy’s desk so he might pick it up and give her an excuse to spark conversation; girl smiles mischievously because her plan worked.

Several pencil drops later, Dani and Bryce found that their whole worlds were about to change. Their young, innocent infatuation would soon transform into a true friendship between kindred spirits and then eventually blossom into a beautiful relationship, which officially began in 2011 and continued through their college years and beyond. Dani and Bryce survived being in different states during college—Bryce in Massachusetts at Amherst College and Dani in Maryland at The University of Maryland, College Park. The rest, they say, is history!

On Christmas Eve 2016, nearly six wonderful years later, Bryce, knowing her love of books and love stories, surprised Dani at her favorite restaurant (Busboys and Poets) with a self-authored book chronicling their love story, entitled “The Prince of Bel Air, A Love Story by Bryce Monroe.” Dani read each page, and as she turned the page to “Chapter VI: Happily Ever After,” he dropped down on one knee while she read the words “Will You Marry Me? I cannot wait to write our story with you,” and Dani said yes!”

The Wedding

Bryce and Dani’s wedding being my last wedding of the year was the best possible note to go out on. I knew it was going to be an amazing day emotionally – these two are so in love and truly admire and cherish each other. The way Bryce looks at and speaks of Dani is something most women only dream of – he knows that he has an amazing woman. They’re also both performers – Dani a dancer, and Bryce a multi-talented actor/singer/dancer and more. It was the perfect recipe for an emotional and beautiful day complete with one hell of a party. I had high expectations… and they were exceeded.

Some of my favorite moments from this day are when Dani and her girls had an impromptu dance routine to Tina Turner while getting ready (you know you’re in for a good party when…), Danielle’s dad seeing her for the first time, the multitude of Hamilton references, Bryce and his mom breaking it down during the mother/son dance, Bryce and the groomsmen’s a capella and dance medley… I could keep going. 2017 was an amazing year for weddings for us, and this was the best way to close it out.

Danielle and Bryce, I adore you two completely and I couldn’t be happier you chose me to capture your special day. Without further ado, here are just a few of my favorites from their wedding!
