The Waterfront Wedding Videography | Brook & Derek


The Wedding of Brook & Derek
at The Waterfront

Wisconsin Wedding Videography by Olson Film

“From that point forward, I slowly, but surely, fell head over heels for the man I met while waiting for the elevator.”

Sounds straight out of a movie, right?!

On September 1st, 2013, in an apartment building at the University of Minnesota, Brook and Derek stood outside of an elevator together, and officially stepped into each others lives. It was this very first meeting (and with both of their mothers present!) that left the other lingering in their minds for the days to follow. On such a large campus it would have been easy for them to never cross paths again, but as fate would have it, just less than a week later, they found themselves in front of each other again. This time, at the campus gym. Brook introduced herself again to Derek, Derek asked for her number, and their love story began.

On September 1st, 2018, exactly 5 years after the day they met, Derek and Brook stood before family, friends, and God, to commit their lives to one another forever. Faith runs deep through them, and they describe their relationship as one that’s not only blessed, but truly destined to be together. Their ceremony took place on a patio overlooking the Wisconsin River at The Waterfront in La Crosse, which began with Derek’s father, Dan, sharing his own advice for the couple that left every loved one in awe. His powerful words truly couldn’t have been more perfect for this film of their wedding, and to always keep in their hearts as they begin their journey of marriage.

Each couple touches our lives in a unique way, and Brook and Derek were simply no exception. We first met these two a few weeks before their wedding, to capture a film of their vows to be played at their wedding reception (take a peek here!). Brook and Derek, from that moment on, you have been a constant inspiration of strength, of joy, and of passionate love. We are so touched by your kind hearts, so honored that you opened your lives to us, and so thankful for the couples who turn into friends.

Congratulations, to The Liebhausers!! 🖤🖤
