stephanie and derrick -- married

Ya'll. Prepare yourselves.

Derrick and Stephanie's wedding was the kind that reminded me why I'm a wedding photographer. I love a good editorial, styled shoot. I love arranging and capturing beautiful things. But man, I love seeing love. Every relationship, every wedding, is different, and that is so beautiful. Stephanie's dress was gorgeous, her bridesmaids on point, the venue was stellar, and the food was wonderful. But, without a doubt the thing that I came away from her wedding night with, the thing that had me smiling the whole night, was the palpable love of two families that were being brought together. The speeches were long, the toasts kept going, and Stephanie and Derrick danced with about every member of their respective immediate families and it was the BEST thing. This happened because so many people love them so much, and support their marriage wholeheartedly. Childhood stories abounded. Tears flowed. People danced their booty's off. It was a pleasure and an honor to be welcomed into your families for the day, guys. We wish you the best and happiest of times.
