Aly + Derek Wedding // Wedgewood at Boulder Creek
The day had finally arrived. With Boulder Creek rushing in the background, it was a beautiful day to get married and their venue (Wedgewood at Boulder Creek) looked stunning. Aly and Derek obviously put in a lot of thought into their details which stood out and really complimented the story of their wedding day.
I met Derek through the baseball team we play on, the Redhawks. Derek is an amazing guy and someone that you'd be lucky to call him a friend. He is extremely kind and loves the people around him by showing his hard work and dedication, which is exactly what he has shown Aly over this last year. He stopped playing baseball, worked what seemed like 80 hours a week simply to give Aly the wedding she deserves. She shows him her love right back. I had only known Derek for a couple of years, but there seemed to be something different about him once Aly entered his life. He seemed to have a permanent smile and walk around a little bit taller because he knew he had someone special in his life.
I was actually there the night him and Aly met! They were both at the "end of the year" party for the Redhawks and they hit it off. All of the sudden Aly was one of the 3 people who came to watch us play every week and we all got to know her (and her dogs) as time went on. Their love for each other is obvious. They fell hard for each other and just a couple years later, here we were, just outside of Boulder on their wedding day.
Even though there were a few delays on the day, everything happened the way it needed to and the most important thing still happened... Aly and Derek celebrated their love with the most important people in their lives. I'm lucky to have been there to not only be a part of that, but to have captured it as well. It is always a great honor to capture a friend's wedding and this time was no different. Cheers for Aly and Derek!!!
