Libby and Weldon, both native Texans, met in 2007 while both were living in New York. After dating for two and a half years and relocating to Fort Worth, Libby asked, "So are we getting married or what?" It was out of character for Weldon to pop the question then and there, so he waited, planned the moment, and made his move in July 2009 bearing a placeholder ring of cubic zirconia ("The best 69 bucks I ever spent," says Weldon, who co-owns LetsRun.com, a site for marathon enthusiasts). The date was set for New Year's Eve -- just five months away -- in Morocco. "We were already planning a Christmas vacation there, so I thought, 'Why not?'" says Libby.
Libby opted to forgo getting married in a classic white wedding dress. She did, however, slip into a Marisa gown (and a pair of sneakers!) for a preceremony photo session that took place in locations all over the city. "I loved touring Marrakech," says Weldon. "Running around the desert taking pictures is one of my favorite memories of the trip."
