The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
The Wedding of Derek and Mike
Happy 2nd Anniversary, Derek and Mike!
Mike found me last minute. He was having a small wedding ceremony at the Arboretum, just family, a couple of friends, and his beloved, Derek. They didn't need much, just a few portraits of their families' and of the wedding ceremony. If you know me, you know I LOVE a good love story, and theirs definitely was a great one.
Their first date was to a Twins' game the summer of 2012. Mike worked at "the Arb" and Derek would show up there and surprise him with flowers. Their story is romantic, and looking at them, you can tell their relationship if filled with love, respect, and adoration. Derek told his friends, "this one's special", and Mike, well, he told his friends the same basic thing. They both, "just knew". Sadly, they live a part. Derek, in Colorado, in the US Army, Mike over a thousand miles away in Wisconsin.
Congratulations Mike and Derek, thank you for letting me share in your special day.
