Weddings: Dear Derek and Liz: May Your Love Live Forever…

“Being in love” first moved them to promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep the promise. It is on this love that the engine of marriage is run: being in love was the explosion that started it.” – CS LEWIS

Derek and Liz – a couple that cannot be captured in words alone.  The dynamic twosome exchanged their vows in Roxbury, NY at the Inn at West Settlement on a day that promised rain, but instead gave way to gentle clouds and a beautiful sunset.

The authenticity of Derek and Liz was brought alive by the musical talent of their friends and family, the gentle words spoken throughout the ceremony as no detail was too small. From the dresses to the place settings, this day, will forever be remembered.
