Danielle went on about fifteen horrible dates before she met Raul. Maybe it was his charming smile, maybe it was the easy conversation, or maybe it was the slew of bad dates beforehand, but the sparks ignited instantly between these two. Soon, Raul was bringing her along to triathlons and she was bringing him to her grandma’s summer condo in Coronado. She was cycling and running by his side, and he was wandering the San Diego beaches with her hand in his. They were a pair matched in perfect sync and it didn’t take them long to realize it would be forever.
So one San Diego Christmas Eve, Raul took Danielle on a stroll down the boardwalk in front of their beloved Hotel Del Coronado, where Danielle had spent many wonderful summers with her grandma. Midway down the romantic walk, he dropped down on one knee and asked if she would make it forever officially.
Danielle and Raul are pure sweetness in a lovebird package. Danielle’s undying commitment to making others happy and welcome made the day even more fun because all of us got to spoil HER instead of the other way around. They chose the romantic Hotel Del Coronado for their winter wedding, a place incredibly special to them both, and Embellishmint designed the classic white florals while Wayne Foster Entertainment provided the evening music and party. I’m completely smitten with the elegant wintry look of this day!
This wedding just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter, so stay tuned for Part Two of Raul and Danielle’s winter wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado. Your Friday is going to get that much better!
