“We were together, I forget the rest.” – Walt Whitman
Elopements have always been near and dear to our heart. When Soledad and Cheker invited us to be a part of their wedding day, we knew we had to be there. Officiated by a fellow Derby Girl and witnessed by their dog, Pippa, these two pledged their forever love under the Joshua Trees they love so much.
So many of the strong relationships we witness grow from friendship. Soledad told us the story of how these two went from Derby teammates (and some of the best competitors in the world), to best friends, to derby wives, to realizing their friendship was so much more.
When Mitch and I first arrived, we just fell in step as if we were honored guests. The way they constantly reached out to touch one another, the calm focus they both had all day, the adventurous and open spirit they gave us will make this forever one of our favorite experiences.
Thank you for sharing your story, thank you for making us front-row witnesses, thank you for your kind and loving hearts.
