Monika and Virpi were married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA. I didn’t have the chance to meet these two before the big day, but we did get to chat via FaceTime. I knew from the second we started chatting that this was going to be a great wedding. manninen_munoz_derekchadphotography_08202016flagged147_lowNot because of the incredible location or the amazing vendors, but because of the love I could see just oozing out of these two. They are beautiful both inside and out and I knew it was going to be great. And as you can see from the photos, this wedding was just perfect. Everyone had a blast! manninen_munoz_derekchadphotography_08202016flagged142_lowAll of their friends and family that came were just awesome. Their friends and family came from all over… from San Diego to Finland! And their choice for a venue was just simply perfect… all of the details just matched them perfectly. I am SO HONORED to have been their photographer and I love the images I was able to get for them on this gorgeous day in Malibu. Congratulations to Monika and Virpi!manninen_munoz_derekchadphotography_08202016flagged127_low

From the couple: ” How did you two meet? We met while living in San Francisco through mutual friends at a St. Patrick’s day brunch. Who proposed? What was your proposal like? Virpi proposed on 5/16/15 at Santa Monica Beach.manninen_munoz_derekchadphotography_08202016flagged118_low I thought we were going for a casual stroll until she asked me to wait while she set up our location. Once I walked over, I found a book labeled, “Our adventure book” with pictures of our time together and at the end of the pages was another page that read “Things we will do together” and a ring tied into the page with “Will to marry me? Check Yes No?” manninen_munoz_derekchadphotography_08202016flagged115_lowWhy did you choose your venue(s)? We chose our venue because it had a whimsical and romantic feeling to it. We wanted to enjoy natures beauty and effortless elegance.
