What can I say about these two. I remember the first time I heard Kyleigh mention “this really cute boy at work” and how she was going to try to find a way to hang out with him. Well she did manage to hang out with him and after several months, she introduced him to all our friends as, “my friend Derek” We all enjoyed the added company and he soon was a regular to all our football games, “squad” days, and we wondered when oh when was this guy going to ask her out on a date?! After over a year (almost two years) of them being each other’s best friend, he finally asked her out! Kyleigh and I were doing an Insanity workout together when she excitedly recalled all the details for me and I’m pretty sure I jumped up and down, but I may have imagined that part due to being exhausted by said workout. It wasn’t long after they started dating that my husband and I got a phone call from Derek telling us he was going to propose and did we want to meet up with them afterwards for celebratory cheesesteaks in Philly.
Five months later, I had the honor of photographing her wedding! After a deceivingly warm week, the temperatures dropped and it was below freezing on their wedding day, but they were determined to brave the weather and wind and so we trekked on to the beach to do their pictures. Not even those pesky beach thistles could dissuade us!
Kyleigh and Derek, I wish nothing but happiness to you and I hope to be a part of more of your adventures in the future!
