Liz + Derek: Pink & Green Spring Wedding

Last weekend I shot another lovely wedding at the beautiful Chapel of Orange! Liz’s + Derek’s pink and green spring wedding was full of fun…you’ll see! :)

Liz was the most gorgeous bride – I loved her dress!


Can you say SASSY? :)city-of-orange-wedding

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!cmp_0197

While Liz was hanging with her girls, Derek was doing the same with his groomsmen.cmp_0191cmp_0190cmp_0192

Liz and Derek wrote their own vows, which were super sweet. They also incorporated Derek’s daughter into the vows, which was just lovely!chapel-of-orange-weddingcmp_0205cmp_0202cmp_0204

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 :)chapel-of-orange-weddingcmp_0207cmp_0208cmp_0209

Hey, when the bridal party wants to do a “wacky” shot, I’m game! :)cmp_0210cmp_0212cmp_0213

The official “STANK EYE” pose! Often copied but never duplicated!cmp_0214

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! :)chapel-of-orange-weddingcmp_0216chapel-of-orange-weddingcmp_0219chapel-of-orange-bride-and-groomcmp_0222cmp_0220cmp_0221

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…cmp_0226cmp_0228cmp_0227cmp_0229

…featured her bridesmaids singing NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” with pictures of Liz’s face on sticks. It was HILARIOUS!cmp_0230cmp_0231cmp_0224cmp_0232cmp_0233cmp_0234 cmp_0235 cmp_0236 cmp_0237 cmp_0238

I love this look Derek is giving Liz here…watch out! ;)cmp_0239

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! :)cmp_0240 cmp_0241 cmp_0242 cmp_0243cmp_0254 cmp_0244

Following the garter and bouquet tosses, Liz danced with her brother and father, and Derek danced with his sister.cmp_0245 cmp_0246 cmp_0247 cmp_0248 cmp_0249

Party time! The dance floor was packed through the end of the reception!cmp_0223cmp_0251
