Danny and Erica, a wonderful couple full of life and kindness, got married last November, and we wanted to wish them a happy one year anniversary through a wedding reflection post!
They say when you know, you know and this statement couldn’t be more accurate for Erica and Danny. Through trips abroad to San Fransisco and the Dominican Republic, relaxing evenings hanging out with a glass of wine, and simply sharing small moments of their days together, Erica and Danny knew they had found their you know person.
Friends and family gathered together one surprisingly snowy Saturday last November at St. Francis Of Assisi Catholic Church to witness the first steps Danny and Erica took as husband and wife. After celebrations and congratulations, we headed over to the Low-Martin House for an intimate portrait session while delicate little snow flakes fell softly to the ground. It wasn’t supposed to snow as the weather had been warm that week, but as if an answer to prayer, the tiny little flakes fell from the sky slowly, then all at once and added a sense of romance to our shoot. We lit a fire in the house to warm up, and Erica and Danny cozied together, sharing smiles and laughs.
The evening went on to St. Francis Of Assisi Parish Hall where the celebrations and congratulations carried on. There was lively dancing, touching speeches, delicious food, and continuous festivity throughout the evening for everyone. Towards the end of the night, Erica and Danny managed to steal away from the party for some winter wonderland photos outside. Snow whirled around their heads, piled at their feet, and fell on their eyelashes as they laughed, kissed, and reveled in their new status as Husband and Wife.
Danny and Erica, congratulations on your first year of marriage! We remember your special night well and couldn’t be happier for you both. We wish you continuous happiness and prosperity in the years to come.

“As someone who has always enjoyed taking photos and capturing moments in life, choosing a photographer for our wedding was one of the most important parts of the wedding planning process for us. After meeting with Arica & Josh, we just knew they had to be the ones to photograph our day! They made us both feel so comfortable every step of the way, and the time (hours) seemed to just slip by when we were together, with many laughs had! They really took their time to get to know us as a couple and what was important to us, and delivered work that perfectly tells a story of our love, life, family and friends.
Arica and Josh are simply amazing people, who are amazing at what they do. Thank you for our incredible engagement pictures, for capturing every breathtaking and special moment of our wedding day, and for all the things in between. Manifesto, you completely surpassed all of our expectations! We truly cannot thank you enough for doing what you do! We absolutely love each and every photo we have, and will cherish them forever!” – Erica & Danny Brajak
