It was a beautiful Michigan summer day and Melissa was excited to be working at the Michigan DNR, exploring nature during her summer off from teaching. She then noticed a blonde haired man approaching. "Who's that?" Melissa asked one of her co-workers. "Oh, that's Matt. He never smiles," said her co-worker. "I bet I can make him smile," said Melissa.
And she did just that. She made Matt smile in countless of ways, from their nature hikes in all sorts of Michigan weather, to catching fish in various lakes and rivers that surround their West Michigan home. And Matt made Melissa smile the biggest smile when he asked to be his forever!
Melissa and Matt, capturing your beautiful day was an absolute dream! You believed in me from day one and my heart is beaming! I wish I had better words for describing "thank you." I know that whenever I go to West Michigan, I will always think of you two- your love for nature and each other is truly inspiring!
It was a gorgeous summer day in Benton Harbor, MI. The Blue Dress Barn was the perfect venue for these Michiganders. It was filled with so many beautiful elements that celebrated nature!
This dress! Melissa's mom wore this on her wedding day and in true Melissa fashion, she made it into her own. So beautiful!!
Melissa, you are STUNNING!
Melissa and Matt opted to see each other before the wedding, giving plenty of time for taking photographs! I don't think I've ever seen Matt smile this big!
First dance as husband and wife!
The gorgeous bride leading everyone to some all night dancing! Her loved ones happily followed!
This moment might have happened more than once...
What an unforgettable night!
