Classy Summer Cameron Estate Wedding

Jun 30, 2022

“Put your hands together and help me welcome the new Mr. and Mrs. Porell!”
Before the DJ could even finish the last words, the reception space at Cameron Estate erupted into applause! Cass and Danny, with their hands in the air, came running up the steps with the biggest smiles on their faces!

The amount of support and excitement for these two was overflowing!

This theme of complete excitement had been a theme up to this point for their classy summer Cameron Estate wedding. The biggest of smiles all day from anyone that was in attendance. All the way up until one specific moment. Typically, this is not the moment on a wedding day that has people choked up.

It took the HMP Team by surprise…in the best way possible.

Any guesses? No? Let me tell ya! It wasn’t until the father of the groom stood up to give his speech that the huge smiles changed into eyes filled with tears. Yep, you read that right! It isn’t often that the father of the groom even gives a speech on the wedding day, and let alone that he has the whole room reaching for tissues!

But Danny’s dad did exactly that.

He stood up at the front, holding the microphone in his hand and began to speak. Everything was going smoothly. Smiles and giggles popped up all around the room. It was a special speech! As it was coming to an end, the love that Danny’s dad had for him just took over, and he couldn’t hold it together anymore.

The tears let loose.

Not only for his Dad but for many of the guests. Instantly, with tears in his eyes, too, Danny stood up and went over to his dad. Arms wide open. Ready to give him the biggest hug. Embracing him tightly and letting him know he loved him. It was one of the sweetest moments we have seen between a son and his dad! I will probably remember it forever! His dad pulled himself together enough to finish his speech and let the couple know how truly happy he was for the two of them.

Not a dry eye was left in the room!

It perfectly showed just how much love and happiness there was for Cass and Danny! There guest count may not have been the biggest we have ever seen, but the support for these two matched them! The whole day, these two were surrounded by endless love, support, excitement, and happiness. What more could you ask for! I know I, along with my team, couldn’t have asked for a better couple to be part of the HMP family! Tracey and Adela absolutely loved working with these two and their entire bridal party! Enjoy some of our absolute favorites as we reminisce about this beautifully classy summer Cameron Estate wedding!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
