There was a lot of hurrying and scurrying going on the Room 403 of the Hotel Monaco last Saturday. Dresses were being steamed and hair was being sprayed. Melissa seemed to be preparing everyone else but herself! I walked in, introduced myself and was greeted with a huge hug. I say this all the time, but I’m always somewhat nervous about meeting the couple the day of their wedding! I booked this wedding last minute, not knowing Sean or Melissa at all! So I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were an incredibly genuine and fun-loving couple.
I spent some quality time with the guys in the morning and then made my way up to the bridal suite to meet Melissa. As she made final adjustments on her hair and gown someone asked, “Melissa, what do you need? Can I get you anything??”. Melissa just looked up, glowing, and said “I just need my groom, just him, that’s all I need”. I melted, along with everyone else in the room. We then left and headed downstairs for Sean and Melissa to share their First Look. What an incredible start to their wedding day. It was such an honor to be there! Enjoy Part one and get excited for Part two coming later this week!
This moment between Melissa and her mom makes me smile. I love my job.
Are you tired of shoe shots yet?! Sorry. I can’t help it! As soon as I saw Melissa’s shoes I went detail crazy! Loved them!
Meet Delaney, Sean’s daughter. She’s a little angel that would say the cutest things. After Melissa put her dress on, Delaney exclaimed, “Melissa you are stunning!”. So cute!
Photographer in the making!
Such a model! Sean’s “Serious” pose was incredible! How bout’ that chair?!
The “First Look”!!! If you haven’t heard my rant about how A-M-A-Z-I-N-G “First Look’s” are and how much time they save on the wedding day, we need to chat! The moment he turned around and saw Melissa, he started beaming. I love capturing these moments! They are truly PRICELESS!
Don’t you love the way he looks at her? Melissa, he’s crazy about you girl! Loved this shot!
The light, the colors, the subjects… everything was perfection right here!
In case you didn’t see their sneak peek, look how awesome their shoes were! They make photographers verrry happy!
Be sure to stay tuned for part two to hear more of their story and view more images from their amazing wedding!
