Matt and Melissa’s wedding was such a pleasure to capture. We met several months before the wedding but he, being overseas, had to relied on her ultimate taste to plan all the details of their wedding. Wow… she certainly did an awesome job. As I entered the room she was calm and collected as her best friends moved softly around her to make sure she was ok. They were not there to be bridesmaids, as there was to be no traditional wedding party, but they were a comforting presence that kept her calm as she got ready… No worries there… Melissa was ready and from the looks of things down in Matt’s room, so was he. As I looked for the details to photograph I was taken by the thought that was put into every detail, including the cologne and perfume bottles… how cute!
Matt I want to personally thank you for your service to our country and pray that you will remain safe until your feet touch back down on US soil later this year. Melissa… now a military wife… thank you for having his back and keeping it all together as he serves.
I love the getting ready hour… time that gets my creative juices flowing!
