The lovely couple Daniel and Touni finally walked down the aisle in August 2017. Daniel, after the wedding ceremony, explained that he was the one she would spend her entire life with.

She said,

"The first time I visited Adam in Palo Alto, he was out at work and I let myself into his home and I walked into his bedroom and he had this painting over his bed of this little girl reaching to this balloon floating away and it said, ‘There will always be hope.’ And it hit me so deeply."

"I was like, ‘Who is this man that has such a sensitive painting over his bed?’ Personally, I’ve gone through [a lot] … I’ve survived cancer, I’ve gone through health challenges — and that was really deep for me. I remember texting my best girlfriend and I was like, ‘I feel like this is a sign.’"

They exchanged vows at The Carondelet House in downtown Los Angeles in front of 150 close friends and family members. The amazing moment was captured by celebrity photographer Michael Segal and his team at Michael Segal Photography.
