Last weekend I shot another lovely wedding at the beautiful Chapel of Orange! Liz’s + Derek’s city of Orange wedding was full of fun…you’ll see! :)
Liz was the most gorgeous bride – I loved her dress!
Can you say SASSY? :)
I love a big bridal party! I especially loved the long pink dresses – perfect for a spring wedding!
Love this gorgeous bouquet by Oceanic Flowers!
While Liz was hanging with her girls, Derek was doing the same with his groomsmen.
Liz and Derek wrote their own vows, which were super sweet. They also incorporated Derek’s daughter into the vows, which was just lovely!
I caught just a few moments with Liz and Derek right after the ceremony – I love me a sweet kissing shot, but I think I love the laughing ones even more! They just show how fun and relaxed these two are together :)
Hey, when the bridal party wants to do a “wacky” shot, I’m game! :)
The official “STANK EYE” pose! Often copied but never duplicated!
I had just a few minutes with Liz and Derek prior to entering their reception and the light cooperated beautifully, not to mention they really turned it on! :)
The toasts to Liz and Derek were…well, let’s just say I’m not sure if in my entire wedding shooting career they will be topped! Derek’s best man essentially served up a roast of a toast that had the wedding guests in tears! And Liz’s toast…
…featured her bridesmaids singing NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” with pictures of Liz’s face on sticks. It was HILARIOUS!
I love this look Derek is giving Liz here…watch out! ;)
I was pretty impressed with Derek’s stance going through these photos. I don’t know if he was a pitcher at some point in his life, but it sure looks like it! :)
Following the garter and bouquet tosses, Liz danced with her brother and father, and Derek danced with his sister.
Party time! The dance floor was packed through the end of the reception!
Congrats, Liz + Derek!
