I probably did a massive overshare with Danielle and Raf's Wedding but once you start scrolling you will completely understand why. Danielle and Raf's Wedding was complete Wedding Goals, not only was it stunning and probably every little girl's dream wedding but the love they have for each other is one most could probably only dream of, to simply put it they are perfect for each other. I literally could just not stop taking pictures, I mean her bouquet had GOLD LEAVES... okay okay, I have so many pictures on here I would rather not take up all your time on just talking about how beautiful it was, so check it out for yourself!
Meet Danielle & Raf... How did you two meet and how long have you been together? Let's go way back, to October of 2007, down south in sunny Myrtle Beach. The typical camping group were ready for another adventure, but a lucky boy got to join - Rafael. Danielle had just started grade 9 so naturally, was quite interested in the cute older boy from school. Danielle specifically remembers Josh and Raf belting A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton from the top of their lungs all week long. Other memories include golf cart rides, fishing on the beach, playing at the arcade, laying in the lazy river, and mini-putting. Raf and Danielle had lots of fun together and even have pictures to prove it. Years later, in summer of 2012, Raf and Danielle joined the same beach volleyball team. With Raf's competitive nature and Danielle's la-di-da demeaner, they didn't click right away. Raf was not interested in the girl who struggled hitting the ball over the net - he wanted to win. After the final game of the season, the team went out for drinks and they began to talk, a lot! Conversation came easy to them and it continued throughout the night. Neither wanted to say goodbye but as they did, Raf grabbed her hand and kissed her. Together for 7.5 years.
My Partner's first kiss made me think... what? Raf: WTF IS HAPPENING Danielle: OMG YES!
If you had 3 wishes to be granted to your partner what would they be and why? Raf: a). unlimted lobster and shell fish for life: her favourite food she would never get bored of! B), A successful career. Danielle does not want to be a stay at home mom and is very goal oriented and has lots of expectations for herself! I would love her to start a business or take over one! c). A happy family! We both come from great families and always talk about how much that means to us. I hope one day we are able to have that! Danielle: 1. The chance to hangout and play hockey with the Leafs 2. The money to open and run a hotel of his own 3. Twin boys that get into the NHL
What do you think is the most important part of the marriage to concentrate on to keep it stable? Raf: the most important thing is understanding we are both human both have good days and bad both have happy times and down times. Loving eachother and placing all other things second. Love is so important and sometimes a hug or a cup of coffee in bed can make a huge difference. Danielle: Friendship. I think it’s important to truly enjoy each others company and to have fun together as much as you can. We are always looking forward to reuniting after work and spend the night together. It’s super fun to be in love with your best friend.
Yes... That is me wearing Danielle's Petticoat while I photograph their Wedding Portraits because we were on a roll and I wasn't stopping LOL
What was it about your partner that made you believe they were "the one"? Raf: I was in Vancouver and realized that everything I did I missed Danielle. Everyone I met I compared to her. I realized that she was truly the center of my life and I loved her so much. Danielle: I immediately fell in love with Raf because of how easy he was to talk to. I felt an instant connection and friendship over anybody before. I didn’t know it was love at first, but that feeling never went away.
What's the most embarrassing thing your partner has said or done around you? Raf: “whats tupac?” Danielle: HOW COME I CANT THINK OF ANYTHING!?!? Raf is pretty good at not being embarrassed at things lol
What is your song and why? Raf: Shine bishop gunn our walk out song. Fav podcast song great tune and always brings us back to our wedding day! Danielle: So many!! Shine by Bishop Gunn was our wedding song but we also love Best Day Ever by Mac Miller.
