Eric Mohlenhoff and Derek Yim met online using okcupid.com. Derek was the one to send the initial email and their first date was in NYC at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 5 years ago. They are a pretty laid-back couple who enjoy relaxing evenings at home watching movies. Eric loves watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" every Christmas while Derek enjoys watching cheesy 90's action movies like "Demolition Man" and "The Fifth Element". Together, they can watch the "Back to the Future" series back-to-back with Emma their cat and never tire of them.
Eric works as a regional manager overseeing 3 hotels in NJ, and Derek works for a world renowned urban university as a data analyst in NYC. The couple loves to have a good time laughing together and enjoy just spending time together. Eric and Derek also love seeing the world together and have been on multiple road trips in Eric's small Mazda Miata.
Their biggest adventure was deciding on a Key West Wedding at the very exclusive Sunset Key! Derek + Eric were married oceanside while Eric's sister, Sarah made the couple officially husbands. The crane who frequents the island wanted to hang out and watch the ceremony. Perhaps it was sign the Eric's Dad was there in spirit. Such a perfect moment to capture. After the ceremony, the wedding guests were delivered to the wedding reception in style on the Fury Catamaran. The wedding reception took place at the gorgeous Margaritaville Resort where guests enjoyed some amazing food and one heck of a dance party!
Congratulations to you and your families on a picture perfect wedding day!
