When I was contacted to photograph Derek and Suzie's wedding, I could not have been more excited. They are HUGE Star Wars fans and when I heard they were having a Star Wars themed wedding I simply couldn't imagine anything cooler as a wedding photographer. Derek and Suzie's love story began "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."...well, not really, but it did begin a long time ago, as they grew up together as family friends, going on ski trips and running in the "same circles" in high school. At some point, Suzie moved away and she and Derek lost touch, but as all true love storie go, they found their way back to one another. On Christmas Eve 2017, Derek proposed to Suzie at his Dad and Stepmom's house - he had his friends and family there and when Suzie opened a gift, a drawing that Derek had done especially for her and had framed, she heard her daughter say, "You're doing it now?". When Suzie turned around, Derek was down on one knee...she couldn't wait to say yes and to become Mrs. Suzie Gran! Derek and Suzie both agree that the best part of their wedding day was simply spending time with their friends and family, and saying "I Do" in front of everyone that they love. Their ceremony was held at a gorgeous home of a family friend in Nipomo, with a "First Look" at the Dinosaur Caves Park in Shell Beach and a "Lightsaber Battle" at the "Hi Way Drive Inn" in Santa Maria. Derek and Suzie truly proved that "Together they CAN rule the galaxy"! Congratulations!
