Derek is an author and Virginia is a fitness instructor. They have both overcome life threatening obstacles but found support, happiness and soul mates in each other. They are so fun, animated and romantic when they are together, which makes them easy to photograph.
This is not your typical wedding and we absolutely LOVE that.
Virginia wore dragon horns and a custom made wedding romper. She is also a former model and current fitness competitor so we were able to have a little more fun with portraits. The wedding party had custom made swords and daggers and thanks to Katie of Pure Whimsy Events the decorations were absolutely stunning and perfectly matched Virginia & Derek's vision. They were married at Stone Tower Winery on a gloomy Friday the 13th and this elegant goth wedding was full of love, happiness and good energy.
