I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my wedding season this past weekend! For Sarah and Derek their wedding ceremony was held at the Presque Isle Lodge near Grand Lake with a reception at the Fletcher Street Depot in Alpena, Michigan. They had perfect weather, so many friends and family celebrating with them and a day full of love and laughter!
They wrote their own vows to each other and after Sarah spoke hers there were happy tears throughout the entire room. And for Derek his vows to Sarah were true, heartfelt and completely honest, proving his devotion and love to her.
Even though this day seemed to fly by it was because it was packed full of amazing things happening all day long! From their emotional, personal vows, to their gorgeous wedding cake, to a picture slideshow, yes that one that makes you laugh, say “awww” all with happy tears to Derek’s surprise gift to Sarah, a brand new Jeep!
I can’t say enough about Sarah, Derek and their families! They all were beyond kind, welcoming me into their special day. But most importantly how sweet they are with one another. They are truly best friends and absolutely in love with each other!
Having this opportunity to document their wedding day leaves me feeling grateful and blessed! Congratulations Sarah and Derek on becoming husband and wife!
