It's the ultimate inspiration for brides, grooms and romantics who just can't get enough of fairytale weddings.

Robyn and Michelle's wedding story began the day after Robyn's birthday, when the couple hiked San Francisco's Kite Hill to enjoy the sunrise.

Michelle presented Robyn's birthday present, a book filled with pictures of particular spots that told the story of their relationship, from where they first met to where they first kissed.

After Michelle's proposal, Robyn proposed. She'd commissioned an Etsy artist to decorate a plate with her handwritten proposal.

Robyn and Michelle got ready for their special day at the Thompson Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.
