From the photographer, Melvin Gilbert:
“On January 2007, Erika and Tyson were introduced on Tyson’s first night in California at the Red Robin in Glendora. Erika was half way through her sophomore year playing softball and studying Communications at Azusa Pacific University. Tyson was starting at Citrus College to play football in hopes of landing a scholarship to a university. It wasn’t love at first sight, but it was a start to a wonderful friendship. A few months later, Tyson finally built up the courage to ask Erika out on their first date and from that point on they were inseparable, until Tyson accepted a football scholarship at the University of Nebraska in 2008. After a year and half being apart, Tyson returned to California to finish his college football career at APU. The last 3 years they’ve have had their up’s and down’s, but it’s only made Erika and Tyson’s love grow deeper. Five years to the date, in the same place where they first met, Tyson proposed to Erika. God has guided and provided for them, and will continue to do so as they place their faith and trust in Him. Erika and Tyson will take their vows before God, their family and friends, on February 2013 at the Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert, CA. Congratulations Erika & Tyson.”

Lovely words from The Blueberry Wedding Blog:
“There’s something about a dock. Maybe it’s because there’s only room for two. Just you and the love of your life sitting at the end of the dock, completely surrounded by water. Or maybe it’s the notion that you’re sort of on land, but at the same time, a part of the water. It’s that state of in-between that makes you feel so exceptional.
Lindsay + Brad’s engagement shoot on the St. Lawrence River didn’t involve any fancy props or fanfare. It was simply the two of them, being shot by the incredible Genevieve Georget of fifteen:fifty-one photography of Ottawa, Ontario. And that was enough: an absolutely gorgeous couple, a serene river, and a tremendously talented photographer to document it all.
The water of the St. Lawrence River was calm and blue on the day of Lindsay + Brad’s shoot. The impeccably dressed pair interacted together in what appears to be an effortless manner. As though they’ve known each other their entire lives and couldn’t imagine spending a day apart. From looking into each others eyes while ankle-deep in water to cuddling on the end of the dock, staring over the water, Lindsay + Brad’s harmony can’t be denied.
There’s something about a dock. But it’s more about that couple on the dock; deep in love, with the water quietly lapping underneath them. Life goes on around them, but they are all that matters.”
