It's hard to believe it's already been two years since I first met Christie and Derek. Our meeting happened sporadically and totally by chance. I was set to meet with another client that day and upon receiving a last minute cancellation, I also received an email from Christie. As luck would have it, we were able to meet that very day and by that evening, Christie and Derek decided I was a good fit for them. I felt a strong connection with these two early on. We just clicked.
I have never seen a man dote on his significant other more than Derek does for Christie (I have photographic evidence to back me up!). Their love for one and other is so apparent, and truly is an inspiration to witness.
Just four days before Christie and Derek's wedding, my father unexpectedly passed away. The days leading up to their wedding, I was unsure how I would find the strength to deliver my full energy into such an important occasion. Christie and Derek were unbelievably kind and supportive, which truly speaks to the type of people they are. That day, I found myself in fits of laughter and happy tears. It felt like I was watching my two good friends get married.
Thank you, Christie and Derek, for trusting in me to hold your memories still. xoxox
