Danielle + Alex: A June wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard

Danielle and Alex met in college at Skidmore but “re-met” at a wedding between mutual friends a few years after they graduated. They spent the next year falling in love along the brownstone-lined streets of Brooklyn as the seasons changed. Before too long, they were engaged on Martha’s Vineyard and planning their wedding in Stonington at beautiful Saltwater Farm Vineyard.

Danielle says about Alex, “I love his blue eyes, and the way he looks at me. I love how secretly goofy and silly he is – just like me!”  Alex  says, “I just love her laugh (hear it often). I love that she’s down for whatever. I love that she loves to have as much fun as I do.”

Everyone at their wedding witnessed their connection, their love of family and friends and of course, Danielle’s simply gorgeous laugh and smile.

Happy love Danielle and Alex! Wishing you a life full of wonder and happiness!

xo, Anna
