They share a love of the water, and had dreamed of getting married at sea one day. It was only fitting that they tied the knot at the Indianapolis Yacht Club, overlooking the docks along Geist Reservoir, with the love and support of their closest friends and family members around them. Mandy and Derek’s story is one woven with love, despite several medical hardships that have come their way. On this hot summer day, with many thanks to Wish Upon A Wedding, they were able to have the wedding of their dreams, without the stress of planning the many details involved! They love each other with their whole heart, and it was felt by every single person who was lucky enough to witness their special day. I met Mandy and Derek and their sweet families for the very first time on their wedding day. However, I was already smitten with them after seeing a short video of their story a few days earlier, so to have them in front of my camera was such a treat! And then to relive this amazing day just a week after their wedding from the videographers’ perspective was awesome! A must-see!
Mandy and Derek, what an honor it was to photograph your wedding day! Aside from being completely adorable together, it is clear that your love for each other is the best medicine. I had so many favorite moments from your day…when the sun shined down at all the perfect
moments, like during your sweet ceremony under the tall trees and then as it set softly along the water for just the two of you. And when you danced together, you held each other close, never wanting to let go. The toasts by two of your best friends that were so very heartfelt. Just to name a few! It was a day that I’ll never forget, and I wish you both all of the happiness in the world!
I would like to thank this incredible team of wedding professionals who made the day flow so smoothly and with so many gorgeous details! It was such an honor and so fun to work alongside you all!
