{real weddings} Danielle & Russ

Romantic. Soft. Sweet. All words I would use to describe this next wedding feature — between the lighting, the photography and the looks of love between this couple, this wedding is just that. I hope you enjoy my interview with bride, Danielle — and photography by Jessica Ames.

When / where was your wedding?
Our wedding was on May 24, 2014 in Newark, Delaware at Deerfield Golf Club.

What’s your love story? Or more simply, how did the two of you meet?
Russ and I met while we were both working at Dover International Speedway. I was only there for a short time but we really hit it off.

What made your wedding dress you?
My dress did not come with the belt. I picked the belt out to give it some bling. I knew I wanted something classy but with sparkle. When I found the dress it didn’t take me long to realize it was the one but it was missing something. Adding the belt really gave it the pop that I thought it needed.

Band or DJ?
We went with a DJ. We really tried to make our wedding as classy but as simple as possible. A DJ seemed like the easiest choice as far as music goes. There weren’t really any limitations with what they would do for us. They were sure to have something for everyone.

What’s one piece of wedding advice you’d share with other brides?
It’s so easy to get stressed out. The little details are just that…little details. No one but you will notice if something is out of place so don’t get too bent out of shape about it. The only thing I didn’t worry about that I should have was timing. I was the last one to get my hair and make up done and we were running behind by the time I got everything done so we missed out on some picture time. Speaking of pictures…be as specific as you can with your photographer. They have no way of knowing what you want unless you tell them. After the wedding is done and over all you’ll have left is the memories and photographs. Make sure you capture every moment possible.
