Brenda and Michael- A Love Story

Wedding Session- May 28, 2017

“Love is old, love is new, love is all, love is you.” — The Beatles

It’s been a while. Yes, I know- eeeek. I have, however, had the pleasure to photograph the beautiful wedding of a totally bad*ss couple and I’m going to share some of my favorite shots of the day/night. The wedding and reception both took place at The Hotel Derek which allowed for a fun, festive, and eclectic celebration.

I’ve known Brenda since we were kids- we used to swim competitively together and she is the reason why I have a crazy (not so) little puppy these days 😉 She is quite possibly one of the sweetest, most friendly, and happy person I have known. It took ten years for our couple to make it to this day but it was well worth the wait. The stories their family and friends told about them were tear inducing and oh-so sweet.

Quite possibly the best part was their doxies were the flower girl and ring bearer. Super cute, huh? I know, right!! And, on top of that, our couple’s other dog was a prominent subject in Brenda’s bridal portraits (that will be another blog post, so stay tuned). Here are some highlights from the wedding session, enjoy:

Brenda and Michael opted for the First Look so we set up Michael and Maxwell like this, while Brenda and Reesie came down the hall.

And then he saw his bride…

Seriously, could you have even planned for a better reaction??

“Listen, do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? Closer, let me whisper in your ear, say the words you long to hear: I’m in love with you.” — The Beatles

And then of course there were the doxies.

Maxwell the ring bearer extraordinaire and Reesie the pita bread stealing flower girl.

The reception was gorgeously put together by the hotel and Inventive Events. Every last detail was tailored for Brenda and Michael. I loved the color scheme Brenda picked out- the muted green and pink really went well together.

“How could I dance with another when I saw you standing there?” — The Beatles


And then as if their day could get any better- it did.

Four words: The Fab 5 Band. These guys were an AMAZING Beatles cover band and let me tell you, they did NOT disappoint! They were a surprise for Michael’s mother who is a HUGE Beatles fan. They played several sets and they all got everyone on the dance floor each time.

They even gained The Beatles a new fan.

Congratulations Brenda and Michael! Thank you for letting me document your love story and big day. I wish you nothing but the best and a life full of warm hearts and wet noses. XO – Diana

PS. I’ll give you one guess as to what music I listened to while writing this blog post 😉
