Derek + Vanessa // Wedding by Lawrence

Celebrating Derek + Vanessa

This blog is in serious need of a wedding post, I know :) So I hope this one makes up for it. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, as usual, I’ve been busy with peak season, and on top of it, I’m a few weeks behind schedule on everything just because this past month I’ve had the worst flu I’ve ever had in years. I’m still not 100% better yet so things have just been a bit stressful trying to balance life and work, and attempting to get better. So praying that I get over this bug soon!! It’s been driving me mad! Anyhow, onto the photos!!

I don’t know what to say about this wedding. Really. And that’s weird for me, because I usually have too many words, but for once, I am at a loss for what to write because I don’t think anything I will type here will do justice to everything that was felt and seen at this union. Even the drizzle that visited ever so frequently on the day that Derek and Vanessa said “I Will” to each other, didn’t seem to put a damper on the huge amount of love, friendship, and joy that was shared by all that sat under the stars and fairylights. There’s just something magical about small intimate weddings that just capture my heart. I know weddings and nuptial celebrations come in all forms, sizes, and types, but it’s the small ones that involve just the closest of family and friends that really give way to what makes weddings beautiful – love, joy, intimacy, closeness, and camaraderie. Those are the things that truly make photos beautiful and shine.

Thank you Derek and Vanessa for having me as part of your journey. You could have chosen ANYONE from the thousands of talents out there that you know, so please know it was a HUGE HUGE honor as a photographer. Bucketloads of love to you both. You’re an amazing pair together.
