Who: Derek & Leah
What: A wedding
When: July 24th - 3pm
Where: The Valleroy Backyard Garden
why: To Tie the Knot!
Mike and I were happy to witness two longtime friends get hitched this past weekend. This couple is what you would call "made for each other". They had been dating for many years (like me and Mike) and finally made it down the isle. What made it ever more special was that it was so personal. The wedding and reception was thrown in the Groom's parent's backyard and it was beautiful! Friends and family all helped make their day perfect by lending a helping hand in almost all areas. Mike played classical guitar for the ceremony, which consisted of both classics and beatles songs. He was wonderful, of course.
My part was getting to the house early and prepping the bride! Luckily that just entailed hair and make-up! The bridal party did most of the work arranging and providing the much needed bloody mary's.
The ceremony was heartfelt and the couple's vows were perfectly personal. I had a great time and feel so happy to have been a part of the beginning of their new life together as a married couple.
Here are a few pictures of the Derek and Leah and the best man, Taylor. (Also, one of our best friends).
Congratulations to Derek & Leah Valleroy!
