I'd like to say that fate put these two in the same place at the right time. They met in St Louis, half a world away from Toby's home. And there in that city was Dan - and they say they knew right away that it was something special. The rest is history, and since then they've relocated to New Mexico. They laughed hard as they told me about Dan "super cheesily" proposing on Valentine's Day, and looked at each other sweetly as they told me about their special day. As we sat and sipped coffee and cracked up over and over again, I knew that photographing their wedding was going to be awesome - and it was!
The weather was gorgeous that day in Santa Fe, and the excitement built as everyone arrived to Neptune Gallery. Dan and Toby selected their closest family and friends to celebrate with them as they promised to forever, and it was incredibly intimate and amazing. They enjoyed appetizers in the courtyard and toasted to champagne with eyes filled with tears as memories were shared and dreams were spoken. We strolled down Canyon Road as they ventured over to The Compound for dinner, and as we went people cheered and celebrated and all was perfect! It was a day that my heart bursts over, and a day I am so thankful to be a part of!
Thank you to T + D, for welcoming us in so warmly, and trusting us to photograph your special day! It was so much fun, and wonderful in every way!
