Whimsical Botanical Gardens Elopement // Abby + Danny

They bought rings on a Friday. She found her dress on a Sunday. Only the closest family gathered around them on a Tuesday- just an average Tuesday.  It was cold and blustery, like most December days in Fort Wayne are. But for a little boy, a little girl, and two people in love, it was the most magical day of their lives. The family that had been built over the past 7 years - the family that had been a family in their hearts all along- finally became one with a few simple vows and two stunning rings. 

As they stood under the Christmas trees at the Botanical Conservatory, Danny and Abby promised a lifetime to each other. Danny held his daughter as she cried tears of joy - and she wasn't the only one. Not a single parent, sibling, or grandparent had a dry eye. They were the select few to witness the magical moment when Danny and Abby became husband and wife. As Danny held Abbys dress as they walked through the gardens, taking the first moments of husband and wife and cherishing them to the very fullest, they reminisced over the past seven years and the life that they had built.

They'll celebrate with a backyard party next summer among the best of family and friends, florals grown by Abby herself, lots of champagne and even more love. Danny and Abby, witnessing your day was truly the greatest honor, and I loved watching your marriage come to life. I wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness as a family - xx, M
