Lindsey & Lakin


A Wedding at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, CA

I really just can't say enough about these two... but these two ladies are just BEAUTIFUL, inside and out. Lindsey and Lakin chose Salt Creek Beach for their wedding ceremony and reception because it was a casual, outdoor environment, but mostly because Lindsey saw the beach and knew right away it would be perfect. The couple met and became friends over 10 years ago and their story together is just beautiful. My absolute favorite part about their story is their proposal. Here is what Lakin had to say about who proposed and what it was like: "I (Lakin) proposed to Lindsey on Christmas of 2014—a little over a year ago & right after our 2 year anniversary. I was able to record a song I wrote for her and sent the song to her on Christmas along with the lyrics inscribed in a paper. I told her that I couldn't make it up to Washington for Christmas and that I had to stay in SoCal instead. Without her knowing (and with the great help of her family!) I flew up to WA and timed my surprise so that as she listened to & read the song I wrote for her, I set myself up downstairs in her parents home. Once she was finished with the song, she was instructed by my note to go downstairs by the Christmas tree where I was waiting, and I asked her to marry me. And she said yes. :)" ..... Now tell me that isn't the most adorable story you have ever heard! I knew this song would make a perfect match for their slideshow video of my personal favorites that you can find at the top of this blog post. CONGRATULATIONS to Lindsey and Lakin... and thank you so much for choosing Derek Chad Photography to document your incredible wedding day!
