Kalie and Derek live in Arizona, so we didn't get a chance to meet them until one day before their wedding. Before meeting them we knew the following:
1.) Derek was a Marine
2.) Derek proposed to Kalie at the Grand Canyon
3.) Derek did a lot of other romantic things (that I won't tell you all about because you'll all nudge your husband like I did mine).
4.) They were both very well loved by their families and friends (27 person wedding party and 190 guests attending the wedding!)
So needless to say, I was super excited to shoot this wedding. When I met them, they lived up to the hype. They were sweet, and funny and gorgeous and soooooo in love. On the big day, all the magic was happening. Kalie looked stunning in her gown, and the tears were flowing all day. Derek, being a Marine, had a wedding filled with the armed forces, and I don't know if you guys know anyone in US Military, but no one parties like they do. We laughed, we cried, we cheered, this was truly the perfect wedding. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Cheek for letting us be such a special part of your big day! Enjoy the sneak peek!
