Danae & Jason | Wedding Part 1 | Winding River Plantation

Jun 27, 2011

This wedding was so fabulous, I just couldn’t fit it all into one post! I have gotten to know Danae and Jason a lot over the past few months, and they are truly one of the most amazing couples I’ve ever had the honor of working with. They have been together for 8 years (wow!), and Jason proposed this past summer in Kauai. It was just like a scene out of a movie… literally. He proposed at the base of the huge waterfall that you see in the opening scenes of Jurassic Park. What girl could say no that that, right?

This was my last wedding of the summer, and what a fantastic way to go out! The weather was perfect, we had plenty of scheduled time for portraits, and Danae & Jason had a wonderful group of vendors that helped make this day extra spectacular. Not to mention… Danae looked absolutely stunning in her gown from Priscilla of Boston!

Venue: Winding River Plantation Property Owners Club
Flowers: Fiore Fine Flowers
Cake: Flower & Flour
Music: DJ Brian Hood from Active Entertainment
Coordinator: Jane Roberson
Catering: Chef Marcus of Culinary Creations
Hair & Makeup: Terry Tomb of Euphoria Salon

And of course… a fab.u.lous photographer to document every detail! Here are just a few of my favorite images from the day… check back here again tomorrow see more! 🙂

This moment right here…  is why every couple should consider doing a First Look on their wedding day.

Danae, you look ah.ma.zing!!! 🙂

Can you believe this was all in someone’s front yard? The landscaping at this home was incredible!

Her shoes… his socks… definitely my kind of couple! 😉

I have a soft spot in my heart for orchids, so these flowers made me swoon!

I don’t typically post formal portraits, but Danae’s parent played such an important role in planning this wedding, that they definitely deserve some recognition here. You guys did an amazing job! 🙂

Check back here again tomorrow for Part 2! You’re not going to want to miss this. 😉

    If it’s true that a picture says a thousand words then your work here will forever tell the most beautiful story of two lives becoming one. You have an amazing gift and an obvious passion for your craft. We were so lucky to find you to document this chapter of our lives. Thank you so very much!


Every couple has a different story. Two people that have their own unique personality and sense of style. And together you're planning the most important day of your lives. I would love the chance to be there!

If you want beautifully lit images that focus on the closeness and personality of your unique relationship while embracing the beauty and color of your surroundings then you might be a Crystal Lee couple.

Featuring sunsets, sandy toes 

& couples in love.
