Melissa and Jackson : Wedding

Photography

Their day was filled with a potpourri of personal touches. Melissa wanted to ensure guests were brimming with a sense of connection with her and Jackson. As she finished dressing, Melissa heard Jackson’s booming laughter from the hedged rose garden and tried to gain a sneak peek of her groom waiting for her. Just being around him, Melissa said to her bridesmaids, will make my day so much better!!

For their First Look, Melissa asked her father to escort her down to see Jackson. When they saw each other, Melissa wilted away from her father’s arms and into those of her future husband. Her father took a step back and watched from a slight distance with pride, happiness, and a twinge of melancholy…letting go, both physically and emotionally, can often be difficult. However, sadness can easily be replaced with pure joy seeing two people so in love.

Melissa and Jackson, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day. It was beautiful in so many ways and I truly felt connected to your love. Thank you for continuously thinking of JD and me as one of your guests…your kindness did not go unnoticed! Have fun in Maui…and get a tan for me!! Much Love and Appreciation…J*

I loved Melissa’s Maggie Sottero wedding dress~

Melissa asked for the First Look to be just her, her father and Jackson, but her friends and family found a clever way to still be in on the action! 🙂

They had some of the funniest toasts ever!

I dubbed this guy Sir Smilealot…Keeper of the Dancefloor 😉
