Our Story
How it all Started

Derek and I met back in high school but we weren't too keen on each other at the time. I was the stuck up cheerleader and he was the know it all snob. Years went by and we crossed paths again at the Arcadia High School Rock and Roll Show. Derek's youngest brother Cody was in the show and I was co-producing it when Derek walked back stage one night. He definitely caught my eye and I apparently caught his. We exchanged greetings that day and several weeks later I got my first Facebook message from him. We instantly hit it off, and before I knew it we were going out on our first date. That night we went out for dinner and then came back to my house to watch a movie. We never did end up watching anything but each other though because we were too busy talking. We shared so many stories, intimate details, and laughs that night that we stayed up until 5:30 in the morning. There was no denying the connection, spark, and attraction that was there from the very beginning. Two days later Derek officially asked me to be his girlfriend and looking at each other that day we just knew that this was something special. Fast forward to the present and all that's left is to say, "I DO!" to our best friend, soul mate, and love of our life. After that well, theres only, "And then they lived happily ever after........"
