{Real Wedding} Jaimie & Derek by Susanna Tanner

Good morning! It's Wedding Wednesday and I have the most gorgeous affair to share with you, photographed by Susanna Tanner. The bride, Jaimie, looks totally flawless in these photos! I love her red lipstick and the pops of red throughout the wedding - poinsettias are my favorite holiday flower! The venue is the Oxford Community Arts Center in Ohio and it's just gorgeous; the perfect simple backdrop for an elegant wedding like this one!

The story of how Jaime and Derek came to be is really quite sweet, too! I love that they're both dentists!

Here's a message from Susanna:

A childhood friendship took a turn during a trip to Gatiinburg, TN. Jaimie had graduated from high school and decided to travel with her friends. And somehow Derek managed to be included in the trip even though he didn't graduate with them. The trip provided the two a chance to see each other in a different light. Jaimie found Derek to be hilarious and sweet, and of course super cute. After that trip they never left each other's side. 

Since then they've gone on to support each other as they develop their careers; Jaimie works as a dental hygienist and Derek attends Ohio State University where he's studying to be a dentist.
