Secret Garden Wedding Kimberly + Danny

Kimberly and Danny got married at The Secret Garden in Phoenix this past weekend!

These two have a story that seems like it should be a rom-com. They met at ASU where they were both part of acapella groups. Kim says she remembers vividly the first time she saw/met him singing a love song. It wasn’t long later the two were cast in the lead roles of the groups big flash mob number and the rest is history!

Kim and Danny were on vacation in Spain when Danny surprised her while they walked along a beautiful beach at sunset on their way to dinner. Kim said “I couldn’t believe he was asking me to take my shoes off and walk down to the water after we had spent the afternoon getting dolled up for a super fancy dinner (we’re talking michelin star restaurant fancy). I was worried he was going to get dirty, haha!” They asked someone to take their photo and that’s when Danny said some beautiful words and proceeded to pop the question. He somehow managed to hide the family heirloom ring from Kim the whole trip!

As you will quickly be able to tell from these photos, a lot of their big day was influenced by that trip and their now love for Spain!

They also incorporated a ton of their love for music, family, and heritage. One of my favorite things about this wedding was how they truly just made it so ‘them’! Kim and Danny were them typical selves on the day. So full of laughter and just really soaking in every moment! My favorite moment though was a surprise to their whole wedding, you’ll have to look at the end of this post for that surprise!

Kimberly and Danny – I can’t thank you enough for letting Dustin and I be a part of such a wonderful celebration! We love you both so much and can’t wait to cheer you on in what’s next in life!
