What do you get when you combine a gorgeous Italian woman with an Irishman? A beautiful wedding full of a lot of fun of course! Derek and Katie’s wedding combined the cultural flair from both of their family’s heritages and everyone enjoyed it all – especially the dozens of relatives who came all the way over the pond from Ireland for the occasion. This element of family and friendship gave their wedding such a beautiful sense of love.
Derek and Katie are very natural together and they value photographs so much that they carved out two hours of time for us to take pictures. We truly enjoyed every moment capturing them and felt like we were able to really connect with Katie and Derek during that time. They are genuine people who take the time to care for the people around them. Katie was thoughtful enough to bring us the most amazing home baked chocolate chip cookies during their engagement session for us to give to our children. It is just who they are.
There was a warmth and a love that permeated their entire day. It was evident in the way the guests interacted and how many people from different backgrounds in life had so much fun together, it was all a reflection of Derek and Katie. Everyone was there for them and exuded their essence and character. It was truly brilliant!
Derek and Katie, you are such a wonderful couple and we are so excited for you as you start your life together. May you continue to positively impact the people in your life in even greater and grander ways and may you continually see and experience that same love in return!
