Promise Farm Spring Wedding

May 26, 2023

The saying “water cooler talk” is typically a joke between coworkers about the people that congregate around a water cooler and chit-chat several times throughout the day. But what if that one water cooler chat turned into finding the person you were going to marry. You may look at water cooler chats a little differently. This was the exact way that Danielle and Donnie’s relationship began.

One water cooler chat turned in a Promise Farm spring wedding.

Water cooler chats and emails with puppy images in them was what sparked something between Danielle and Donnie, but it’s the caring personality of Donnie and the contagious laugh of Danielle that kept their love strong! Good thing it wasn’t Danielle’s skill, or maybe lack of skill, at rock-paper-scissors-shoot battles that Donnie was looking for.

However, she does make up for it in Battleship!

Writing this blog just puts the biggest smile on my face. Each of these points were in their vows to each other. They may have been the most personal vows I have heard from both the bride AND the groom! Donnie seriously crushed his! He hit on every milestone, inside joke, and emotion throughout his vows. Hands down, one of the best for a groom. In addition, I sit here with a smile on my face because these truly depict exactly how these two are.

Fun-loving. Affectionate. Happy.

For this to be my first wedding back after maternity leave, I could not have asked for anything better. They both had me in tears during the ceremony. The sweetest vows that I’ve heard in awhile. But the sweet moments didn’t stop there. The way they kissed any chance they could melted my heart. Between poses during bride and groom photos, as they walked down the aisle hand-in-hand, and even in the middle of their dances at the reception. The love between these two is so strong.

It definitely showed throughout their entire Promise Farm spring wedding.

The happiness I have for you two is so high! I can’t wait to see what comes next, now that you are Mr. and Mrs.!!! Only amazing things, I’m sure! Stay exactly the way you are, and never stop stealing kisses whenever you can. Congratulations! Thank you for letting HMP be a part of your beautiful wedding day!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
