You Crazy Kids!

Ok, so they aren't exactly "kids"...Our good friend Derrik married his sweetheart on Saturday. We enjoyed the simple, but beautiful ceremony and small reception they had for family and friends. I always kid about Derrik being the "mountain man" with his burly face and crazy hair, but he's actually a world traveler and successful business man who met his new wife in China awhile back. She's a sweetie and I'm so happy for them both. I kidded him about the language barrier and asked if Shawn knew for sure she was really agreeing to marry him. I think she understood completely! Congrats!
The rings were exchanged after a lovely ceremony. They said a sweet endearment in Chinese after the rings. Both the Bride and Groom had tears...Oh Derrik, you old softie!
After dinner they shared the cake..the traditional "cut the cake and feed it to each other" part. No smeared frosting. That's how a mature couple handles it!
Good luck you two crazy kids! We wish you all the best...if I could say it in Chinese I would. I'll have to ask my Son Craig how to do that!

What a sweet, happy looking couple. It is so neat that they found each other in China. I was amazed by her long long hair. It must be beautiful to look at when she has her veil off.

My son just got back from a business trip to China. He was there a week. That is one heck of a long trip. Your friend, Derrick must have been in China for some time, in order to meet this beautiful girl and talk her into marrrying him. I'm sure that their story of meeting is a good one.

Sweet story. I visited China once, briefly but loved it. Spent a few days in Hong Kong.

Any couple who is in love like that is like a couple of kids at heart. Congrats to both of them. Her hair is beautiful and her dress is classy (from what I can see)

What a beautiful bride! I LOVE weddings. My daughter and her son went to China last year and had a wonderful time.

Anyone I know who has been to China has wonderful things to say about it.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

Awwww, I am so happy for them! I love the story that they found each other in China. That is really romantic. I would love to visit China someday -- or really just to travel at all. I don't get out much ... Stupid school. Maybe they could take me with them the next time they go.
