This beautiful couple and their golden retriever, Brody, had a beautiful, garden inspired wedding at the new creative, convivial & cultured, Ben Hotel. Brynn and Derek shared so many laughs and tears along the way you could truly feel how much they adored each other.
In their words
“Derek and Brynn’s love story started as most love stories start.. their sophomore year of college at Florida State University (they truly found love in a hopeless place). Between winning in beer pong and football games they were on such a high together and that feeling never went away! After graduating they took their talents to Fort Lauderdale where they fell in love with a city and maybe one too many walk up pizza places. Their time was short in Fort Lauderdale but one of the most important things happened here. They added one more to the pack, a crazy but precious Golden Retriever and the love of their lives, Brody. I’m sure Brynn’s shown you a picture or thirty. The three amigos then headed to Tampa in 2017 for new work opportunities and their first apartment together. Quite a few firsts actually.. they traveled to Thailand, adopted a new hockey team and got to live 5 minutes from so many of their best friends (kind of like college round 2). Brynn and Dereks love only got stronger as they continued to take on new adventures! Their next move together was so special it will likely be their last. Derek’s hometown.. it wasn’t hard to convince Brynn to live in actual paradise, so good thing he’s not from North Dakota. This is where Derek got down on one knee to pop the question right on those gorgeous blue beaches. Of course Derek had more up his sleeve, as he usually does. Brynn was surprised with all of their family and friends afterwards to celebrate with everyone they love!”
