It was about 7 years ago now while working at a kids summer golf camp together, that Mel & Derrick’s paths would collide in the best possible way. Both were on summer break from school and at home when they both landed jobs at a golf camp. Although the two of them grew up only about 10 minutes apart they had never met, or attended the same schools. When finally the stars aligned for these two it was quickly revealed that not only did they live close-by to one another, but that they were both students at Western University in London. It was also found that they shared some of the same quirky personality traits and could continuously keep each other laughing. From the beginning, Mel & Derrick had something unique and beautiful that just seemed to be meant to be.
If you meet Melanie, you will be struck by her kind nature, beautiful eyes, and enormously genuine smile. And then there is Derrick… the true gentleman that always wears a smile, or is often laughing out loud. He is so kind hearted. These two share a witty humour that makes them so much fun to be around, but beyond this they make you feel an important part of their lives from the very first time you meet them.
I had the privilege of photographing Melanie & Derrick’s beautiful wedding at King Valley Golf Club just over a week ago. They envisioned a fun, beautiful, Fall day surrounded by all of those closest to them. Mother nature over delivered with one of the hottest days of the year!
Mel & Derrick, thank you for giving me the honour of sharing in this lovely day. Thank you for putting up with the heat (which got a little intense at some points), and thank for patiently working through the day with us to get some beautiful moments and memories. It has been such an honour to share in this joyful day with you both!
