Gabrielle and Mike met at a wedding on the dance floor. He was friends with the groom, as Michelle would be with the bride. He was just some guy on the dance floor dancing up to her while bobbing his head. They started talking and soon enough he asked her out on a date.
Gabrielle fell in love with him because of his dedication and respect. He is always striving to give her the best life and future together. After seeing him with his young nieces and nephews, she knew she wanted him to be a father to their future children. Gabrielle has genuinely found her best friend and the love of her life.
Mike fell in love with her because of how genuine and sweet she is not only to him but to everyone she encounters. He adores her willingness to trust and be open about her true feelings at the beginning of their relationship. Early in their relationship, he noticed Gabrielle cared so much about having a positive and bright future, which made them bond, and they quickly became best friends. After meeting her family, he realized that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.
Mike proposed while walking down Elfreth's alley in Philadelphia. It was a random Saturday, "going out to dinner," and he just stopped in the middle of the path and got down on his knee. The proposal utterly took Gabrielle by surprise. Congrats to an awesome couple!
Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!
"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team. Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
