They were just kids when they first met, back when life was all about sleep overs and game nights and James was just Danyelle’s cousin’s friend. It was a friendship back then, and it wasn’t until college when they reconnected that they started dating. A little while later when James began training for the United States Air Force, they decided to tie the knot at a courthouse in Texas. And after four years of marriage, and a move to the great state of Arizona, time allowed them to prepare for a wedding they always dreamed of…
And it was worth the wait.
Every moment of the day, from James’ reaction at their First Look to Danyelle’s highly anticipated walk down the aisle, held so much weight and meaning. Every minute was savored and appreciated. Their friends and family flew from all over the country to Scottsdale, Arizona to celebrate their love and continuing their growth as partners, best friends and husband and wife.
We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely, genuine and solid couple, and Doug and I are so happy that we get to call Danyelle & James our new friends. From the moment we met them (our first double date lasted nearly four hours), to spending time with them during their sweet Scottsdale Engagement session, we’ve grown to love and adore this couple so much. It’s couples like Danyelle & James that make this job worth it.
