Melissa and Josh had been clients of mine for over a year and a half...so we truly became like family. I was so excited for their day for so many reasons. Melissa and Josh struggled with some of their vendors in the beginning, so when she decided to hire HEA Weddings, we had to scrap some things and start over...like the venue and the photographer. But as I told her..."Sometimes things are just meant to be!" And that really was the case. Plus they ended up with the best vendors possible for their day....I don't settle for less and nor should the client.
The weather was beautiful that day..low humidity and hardly a cloud in the sky...perfect for an outdoor wedding.
Melissa looked amazing with her crystal detailed gown...her bridesmaids in deep purple...and Josh and his groomsmen in their tan suits and purple ties. When it came time to walk down the aisle, Melissa was a bundle of nerves...so scared she would trip, so we decided that if she did...all she would have to do is stand up and say "tada" and act like it was totally planned! THANKFULLY, she did not trip and everything went perfectly!! A beautiful ceremony from beginning to end!
A stunning reception followed...cocktails on the patio before guests were ushered into the reception room. Silver Chiavari Chairs, Plum satin linens, and stunning lighting made the room look fabulous! The wedding cake and groom's cake were show stoppers, guests couldn't stop looking at them.
As I have said in the past, I get really attached to my clients...and these two will always remain very close to my heart. We became friends, good friends, and I am so thankful for that! And I have to mention...the love these two share is like out of a fairytale...you can see it in everything they do, the way they look at each other, talk to one another, and laugh with each other. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for them, and I know it will be great things!! I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness, they truly are beautiful inside and out! Congratulations Melissa and Josh, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding...but more importantly becoming a part of your lives!
