Kaylee and Derek ooze adorableness. I mean look at them, they are the kind of couple that I imagine in my head when I think of a live version of Cinderella and Prince Charming. Derek adores Kaylee and every time he looks at her you can see his admiration in his eyes. They are the cutest couple and I am so glad that I got to spend some time with them while shooting at one of my favorite locations. When Kaylee told me how she and Derek met and how he proposed, I immediately thought that every girl should have someone who loves them as much as Derek loves Kaylee. Here is what Kaylee had to say,
“We met through mutual friends. My friend was dating a friend of Derek’s and she asked him if I could join them for 4th of July on Derek’s boat in 2008. We hit it off and were inseparable from that day on. We started officially dating on 8.8.08. and the rest was magical! Derek proposed with his Great grandmother’s ring as we were leaving Newport Harbor for a weekend trip with our new puppy. We were headed to Catalina for our 3rd year anniversary and it could not have been a more perfect day. He then surprised me again by arranging for our friends and family to be waiting for us over in Catalina to celebrate for the weekend. We all had so much fun celebrating our lives soon becoming one.”
Kaylee and Derek are getting married at Villa De Amore and their wedding will be shot by Marcella Caldwell from The Studio by Leah Marie. What’s The Studio you ask??! You can find out all of the juicy details right here. I cannot wait for their wedding. You all were so much fun to work with and I’m so excited to see what the future holds for the two of you!
