Couple: Derek & Jade – 12.6.15
Photographer’s Note: Derek and Jade were married at the beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California. They met when Jade was a nanny for Derek’s Aunt and Uncle. Derek would visit to play tennis at their home, and he and Jade hit it off. Their winter wedding had a touch of glam with a whole lot of country. The ceremony took place at dusk, and guests snuggled together with warm blankets and drank warm apple cider. The couple’s cute pug Chloe even made an appearance as one of the flower girls. The reception featured fun choreographed dances, the rockin’ live band, Tina Michelle and the Rhinestone Cowboys, and a delicious cake by Portos. Jade is a singer, and she and her friends serenaded the crowd with a mini concert. At the end of the evening, the venue cleared out while the happy couple shared one last dance before running through a throng of guests throwing rose petals as they made their grand exit.
