It was the hottest day of the year, and it also happened to be my birthday! The heat advisory was in full effect, and we were prepared to sweat out five pounds of fluid at Dani and Jimmy Beach’s wedding! Needless to say, we, both Joel and I and the wedding party, made an incredible effort to stay hydrated even adding an extra boost of electrolytes with Propel packets. I can’t rave about them enough by the way, and no, I don’t work for the company!

Despite the smoldering heat, the wedding party was in great spirits for photos (yes…even the groomsmen in their 3 extra layers of clothing)! We only had one bridesmaid ALMOST pass out, but overall, we couldn’t have asked for a better day and wonderful group to work with. I would say the heat between Dani and Jimmy far exceeded the 95+ degree temps and humidity that we were working with outside! And even though there were a lot of Michigan fans in the wedding party to counter my Penn State roots, it was a pretty cool way to spend my birthday with this amazingly fun crew and loving couple!

Thank you Dani and Jimmy, for choosing us to capture your wedding and for even taking the time to wish me a Happy Birthday on YOUR special day! You both are incredible people, and we wish you all the love and joy in your marriage together. By the way, you had me at your hashtag…#forevermybeach! 😉
