WOW…. 3 months later and I am still in awe of Marissa and Derek’s wedding. Not only was the weather picture perfect.. but everything just really came together.
There was “cueing” the wedding processional from two different boats, there was sparklers in champagne and then there was a surprise fireworks show. All of these elements on their own could have created some planning issues.. but then add in the fact that the weather was outside.. In August… and we could have had some really crazy wedding elements.. and that could have created a disaster!!
But like all wonderfully planned weddings with great vendors.. This wedding went off without a hitch and I was honored to be apart of it!! Marissa and Derek live in San Francisco.. so we planned this wedding on a few “whirlwind planning trips” with the bride and groom and the tireless planning of the mother of the bride, Jean!! God Bless this amazing mother….. I can only imagine the amount of time she poured into this wedding and I know that based on these photos.. she has something to be very proud of!!
Marissa and Derek’s love was very infectious and I had so much fun coming to the lake everytime they were home.. to talk through ideas and logistics and to get to know them as a couple!!!! Congratulations you guys!! I hope that you are enjoying newlywed bliss… and I am sure you are already planning your next big adventure 🙂
