Cianna and Derek’s wedding at the breathtaking Cason’s Cove Venue was an occasion that left an indelible mark on my soul. Not only was the venue a never-never land (so beautiful and whimsical) but witnessing these two beautiful souls tie the knot was an experience I will cherish forever. What made this day even more extraordinary was the fact that I had the privilege of capturing Cianna from a young girl to the radiant bride she became on her special day.
Cianna was the epitome of a perfect bride. From the delicate satin slip she wore while getting her hair and makeup done, to the intricate lace details on her gown, every aspect of her attire from the day was thoughtfully chosen to enhance her natural beauty. As I photographed Cianna throughout the day, her genuine joy and excitement became a testament to the love she and Derek shared. One unique highlight was the presence of an ice cream truck, offering guests the chance to indulge in delicious frozen treats during the reception. It was a delightful surprise that added a playful and joyful element to the celebration.
As a photographer AND friend, it was heartwarming to see them exchange vows and promise to spend the rest of their lives together. The ceremony, held under an arbor of beautiful, elaborate white florals, was so romantic and suited just for this perfect couple. From the tender embrace shared during their first dance as husband and wife to the stolen glances exchanged during heartfelt speeches, I was privileged to document the raw emotions that unfolded throughout the day.
Every moment, especially the infectious dance floor, of Cianna and Derek’s wedding day was filled with genuine emotion and happiness. It was an incredible experience to witness the love and support that surrounded the couple throughout the day. Their families and friends rallied around them, creating an atmosphere of love and togetherness.
As I continue my journey as a wedding photographer, it is couples like Cianna and Derek who remind me why I fell in love with capturing love stories in the first place. I hope you enjoy this preview of their wedding day.
