Danielle and Gabe were married on a beautiful spring day at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
The ceremony took place inside the enchanting Woodland Mosaic.
After the ceremony, we walked around the grounds and enjoyed the Lilac Gardens, Rose Gardens, Romantic Gardens, June’s PlantAsia and more.
Danielle shares, “Gabe and I met on a dating site! Neither of us remember who made the first move. We made it official, after only a few dates. We knew it was true love, and trusted that we would be together forever.
We both sold our houses, and started building a brand new house, after only 11 months together. On our 1-year anniversary, we went to the Ritz Carlton in Tucson to celebrate! We had gotten all dressed up for dinner and were walking to the car, and all of a sudden Gabe made me go out a side door of the hotel to “check out what’s over there.” I was pushy and told him that we had reservations for dinner and we couldn’t be late (my biggest pet peeve – tardiness) and this wasn’t the time to explore the grounds of the resort. He insisted, so I followed him out, huffing and puffing and making comments about being late (LOL). When we got outside and turned the corner, I saw a beautiful private grassy area, set up with a table that had flowers, champagne, and light-up ‘D&G’ signs. Gabe told me what an amazing year it had been together and, with tears in his eyes, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I, of course, said yes, and he gave me the most beautiful ring. After I said yes, his brother and sister-in-law popped out of the bushes to celebrate with us. I’m so grateful they were there because they got pictures and video of the proposal!
Shortly after that, guests at the resort cheered from their balcony, celebrating our engagement with us. It was such a special day for us. Just like our proposal, our wedding was also small and intimate. My favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle, very emotional, and seeing Gabe at the end of the aisle, also crying and emotional. I felt the power of how much we love each other in that moment, both so emotional and overcome with love for each other, knowing that it was the start of our forever. Our day was so perfect (even if I was late because I forgot my veil and bouquet and had to run back to get them)!”
Congratulations Danielle and Gabrielle!
