Their day was perfect. It started off with a relaxed morning, just the two of them, as they prepared to marry the love of their life, each other.
A hop and a skip later they were in the garden, where they’d walked many times together before, but this walk would be special. It was a short stroll towards one another, at the same moment, holding onto their parents elbows, meeting in the middle. As guests listened to their promises, flowers swayed in the wind, birds chirped overhead and a fountain quietly gurgled nearby. It was the most perfect setting to promise their hearts forever.
The day was hardly finished after their rose garden ceremony because just around the corner a surprise guest was waiting for their party near the reception. An owl greeted guests into the zoo, closed for their private event, and even the penguins celebrated with flips as Matthew & Daniel strolled by on their way to celebrate. An epic dance party ensued, with nearly every guest making a strong appearance on the dance floor. Daniel & Matthew were all smiles as they danced the night away, the first of many days they’d spend as husbands.
Daniel & Matthew, thank you for the huge honor of capturing your wedding day! We truly loved every moment and hope these photos help you relive the day forever. ~ Erik & Marissa
