Normally, we have a rule about meeting clients before a wedding day, and I'm really glad that we let Lance and Danielle be the exception to that rule! We met Lance and Danielle literally MINUTES before their ceremony- but we got along so easily and so well with them immediately that it was such a joy to work for them! They are such fun laid back people and their friends and family are so welcoming and know how to have a good time! Something that Lance and Danielle may not know though- is that Danielle's father's speech at her reception was a huge deciding factor in our "should we adopt" wrestle. Adoption is something we've always talked about but were never really sure we could do it. Since we have biological children already- I was always kind of scared that I might not be able to love an adopted child as much as I love our bio children. There wasn't a dry eye in the room when her dad gave his speech- mine especially. When he talked about seeing his daughter for the first time- man I lost it. How awesomely special their story is. That's the moment I knew I could do it! Danielle and her family are awesome... and full of love even though they don't look like clones. I just wanted them to know how much their story impacted our lives- even though we were only with them for a few hours.
(I will write a personal post on our adoption journey soon! For now, more info on our adoption journey and if you want to donate here: gofund.me/hoeflingeradoption )
Your family is amazing and we are ecstatic that we were a part of your wedding day, Danielle and Lance! We wish you unending years of happiness and a quiver full of children! Now for the pictures:
They danced the night away and lived happily ever after :)
