Danaka and I met many years ago through the wedding industry. We instantly clicked and I loved every time we got to work together. For this reason, I was over the moon when Danaka reached out about having me assist with her wedding at Pineridge Hollow in 2022. This wedding was among one of my favorites of the year.
Danaka has worked at Pineridge Hollow for years. The venue was her home and the staff were her second family, so it was the natural spot to host the wedding.
After a relaxing morning getting ready, the wedding party arrived at Pineridge Hollow for the first look and wedding party photos. The forest behind the venue was the perfect shady spot to capture these special moments. Interesting fact, you can’t see them in the photos, but on the wedding day there were little white fluffs floating around in the air. It almost looked like it was snowing!
Once photos were complete, Danaka and Eric finally got to tie-the-knot! A special touch for Eric, was that a good friend of his, Scott officiated the ceremony. The ceremony was short, sweet, and perfect!
After the ceremony guests got to enjoy passed appetisers and drinks in the garden. Fun fact: they had three specialty drinks served. They had a “His,” “Hers,” and an “Ours” option.
Once guests had mingled and enjoyed a few cocktails, they made their way inside the Pineridge Hollow tent for dinner. The Pineridge Hollow tent is a beautiful blank canvas. Danaka worked with her good friend Emily from Juniper and Jayne to add a whimsical touch of flowers and greenery to the space.
