I also saw this theme continue when I was doing ring shots! I was almost done and then I noticed some engraving inside of the bands that read “I love you more than Disney world” on Anthony’s and then “I love you more than sports cars” on Melissa’s. Ha! They are the cutest!!

After 12 long years of dating and then being engaged and planning this stunning wedding, Anthony and Melissa are officially husband and wife! One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is seeing how family dynamics play out throughout the event. It was obvious by the end of the night that Anthony and Melissa are SO well loved… especially by their siblings! And because I’m very close to my siblings, this warmed my heart and made me adore these two even more than I already did!

Michael and I were so honored to be a part of this amazing day and we can’t WAIT to share their wedding story with you through images!!! Enjoy!!!

This DRESS! I’ve been waiting so long to shoot one like this! Dreams come true!!!

Loved her Kate Spades and GORGEOUS bands!

Anthony gifted Melissa REAL diamond jewelry on her wedding day!!

Michael rocks these portraits of the guys!

Oh Melissa! You look drop dead gorgeous!!!

How beautiful are these!?


LOVED this Waterfall!

Ohh the LIGHT!! Magical!!!
