There is nothing more beautiful and sweet than to watch your friend fall in love with someone who truly makes them happy. I have had the great pleasure of working with Melissa for over 6 years and she is one of the greatest people you will ever meet. When I was off on maternity leave with my 2nd daughter I heard that she had met someone and it just made me so happy! It turns out that this mystery man was hired while I was off and I now work with him too! Jason is so energetic, and full of life. Watching the two of them together is just electric, their love for each other is transparent. Their engagement session was so natural and fun it just made me that much more excited for their wedding day.
A glimpse back at their engagement session:
Melissa and I worked a lot of night shifts together leading up to their big day so it was really fun hearing about her plans and then getting to see everything come together in the end. The thing that I was looking forward to the most was her flowers! Can you believe they are actually made of wood? Here are a few detail shots from their wedding day:
Melissa and the bridesmaids got ready at a near by hotel while the men got ready at the Groom’s parent’s house. I was able to see Melissa and then get over to the house and see Jason and the groomsmen before the ceremony began. Everyone seemed so relaxed and so excited! Just the way a wedding day should be.
The day was sunny, warm and absolutely beautiful. The ceremony was set on the edge of a field overlooking rolling hills, tree lines and blue skies. Stunning! Everything about the ceremony was intimate and romantic. The vows were from the heart and brought more than a single tear to my eye.
I will keep the formal pictures to just a few of my favourites, which is really hard because everyone just looked fabulous on this day. I love editing all of my photographs but the ones that I get super excited about are of the bride and groom. I feel like I can get a little bit more creative with them and I never really know how it is going to end up until I get there.
This post has already been a lot longer than I had planned but I am just so in love with so many of these photographs! I will sum up the rest of the night in photos… but it just flows with the rest of the day- beautiful, intimate, fun and full of love.
Congratulations again to the happy couple! I am so happy for your both!
