Alaska Barn Wedding: Nina + Derek


I love a good love story, and it is one of my favorite things about getting to know my clients. Nina and Derek met when they were trick-or-treating back in Elementary School. These were the days of shared landlines with your parents, so their love affair didn't last long thanks to Nina's Dad--which he made sure to mention in his toast! (Ha!) Fast-forward to the college days, and who does Derek meet at college and befriend? Nina's older brother, Jake, who then brings Derek home for a weekend. I just love thinking about the moment when he walked into the house and saw Nina. I mean, that's just like something out of a movie!

It was an honor to capture the sweet moments between these two and their families. There were so many laughs, some nerves, and even tears. Congratulations you two!
