It is no wonder this wedding takes the prize for most photos ever published on the Love Katie + Sarah blog – the details…the concept…the total wonder that is illustrator Daniella Germain…it is seriously hard to know where to begin!
When Dany contacted us and described her wedding, she made our creative hearts sing. She mentioned a blog she was keeping to document her work leading up to the wedding, and after checking it out, we were literally counting down the days until we could see everything with our own eyes and record it with our cameras.
In David’s wedding speech he said, “Dany has poured her heart and soul into everything you see at the wedding – to the point that when the venue, the photographers and the caterers found out how talented she was, they all hired her to work for them!”
How could any of us resist?!
See the little hand-drawn portraits of Katie and I at the top of the site? Daniella is responsible for these! She was also responsible for illustrating her entire wedding stationery, making (from scratch, petal by petal) every single flower at the wedding (there were no fresh flowers), collecting hundreds upon hundreds of vintage plates for every guest’s dinner, and she worked all weekend in the lead up to the wedding with friends and family to style the entire ceremony and reception at the gorgeous venue Two Ton Max. David was there every step of the way. If he wasn’t helping, he was emotionally supporting Dany to achieve her incredible vision. This wonder couple worked for a year to bring it all together and I’m not sure we have ever seen something quite so beautiful.
But as we know so well from doing this job, you can have all the details in the world, but at the end of the day, it’s the couple who really make a day. And make it they did.
Welcome to the totally delightful day of Dany and David.

PS – Since their wedding, I have seen Dany’s work EVERYWHERE. A dinner set she designed is sold in my local shops, and the books she has lovingly illustrated pop up in the most unbelievable places. If you want a piece of her amazing illustration her etsy store is here. But the best news of all? You too, can have a Daniella Germain designed wedding!!!
