Brittney and Derek had the most amazing Spring wedding last April. In full bloom, The Duke Mansion was it's usual stunning self (if I could spend every day there I would) and looking back on their wedding day I remember nothing but constant smiles, joy, and one heck of a celebration. Also, their first look - one for the books. So many happy tears (including myself and their photographer, Lauren Friday).
Each year there are a few couples I establish an especially close connection and friendship with, Brittney and Derek were one of those couples in 2016. Because of this I think I've been subconsciously holding onto their wedding day photos waiting for the perfect time to share - in celebration of their first anniversary this weekend, it seems to finally be that time! These two are made for one another and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know and work with them during such a special time in their lives.
PS - congratulations are in order, the newest Tar Heel will be arriving October 2017!
