A Springtime Wedding at the Houston Zoo

Naomi was surprised to see her girlfriend, Rachel, at her office. In the middle of the day. With their two dogs in tow. "She had secretly contacted my boss and requested a few days off of work for me so that we could spend a long weekend at a private cottage in Texas hill country," Naomi recalls. But she was even more surprised when Rachel proposed later that afternoon as they enjoyed a picnic. "It was so romantic," Naomi says. "The sun was shining, there was a nice breeze, and our dogs were running around us in the grass happy as could be!"
