Danielle and Josh have known each other since they were kids in California. Josh always had a crush on Danielle but Danielle just thought of him as her friend's little brother who dressed up as Star Wars characters! They grew up and went their own ways but Josh never forgot Danielle. Fast forward about 13 years later when Danielle and Josh's sister reconnected via Facebook and Josh heard about it and decided to find out if Danielle remembered him. She did. They miraculously found out that they were both single again, with kids, and got acquainted again, this time as adults! One thing led to another and they fell madly in love and made a huge decision to move to North Carolina and start their lives over--this time together. Josh had waited for this moment almost all his life and Danielle realized that his feelings for her were intuitive beyond compare.Shady Wagon Farm. The venue fit their style of Western/rustic/bling all the way. They found me on the preferred vendor list and Weddingwire and we met in July and began planning their truly amazing wedding ceremony.
