The rain held off for this beautiful and intimate wedding! The tears were flowing from the moment I arrived. The day was not just about two people becoming one, but two families becoming one together! Derek and Stephanie are two people that embody the Lord’s testament to marriage! They both value marriage and look to the Lord to guide them through this new season they were entering! Stephanie and Derek both shared their stories at the entrance when you walked into their venue. They both written out their stories of how they met and how the Lord played a part of them as a couple!
Derek and Stephanie met at Church. Stephanie and her sweet boy started attending small group in which Derek watched Stephanie shared prayer requests for family members and friends. It struck Derek how caring and loving Stephanie was to always have prayer requests for others. Derek invited Stephanie and her son, Kingston over for dinner! That’s when Derek, felt a connection with Stephanie! They talked about what their future plans were and realized after having those conversations, their lives were fitting together like a puzzle!
They both took a trip to Colorado where Derek showed Stephanie where he grew up. They stopped in Silverton with the mountains behind them and that is where Derek proposed to Stephanie! These two couldn’t have been more excited to share the news with their families and kiddos. Derek and Stephanie value their relationship to the Lord and their kiddos!
It had been raining here in Texas for days leading up to their special day! All of sudden, the rain cleared up the day before, and it was a beautiful and intimate wedding! They chose Dove Ridge Vineyard for the scenic views and had their ceremony outside! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for these two! Stephanie and Derek, yall have a wonderful family that supports and cares for y’all! You both embodied the Lord and lead your kiddos to him. I wish y’all the best and and can’t wait to see him work in your lives and see y’all continue to grow as a family! Thank you for allowing me to serve y’all and capture a special moment for y’all! Love you both!
