This was one of the most romantic weddings I have shot in a long time. Melinda had so many amazing details for her and Andy’s wedding which paid tribute to Melinda’s mother who passed away last year. She wore her jewelry, had something of hers pinned to her bouquet as well as wore the most beautiful delicate corsage in her memory. Yes I was teary (as well as Melinda) when her sister pinned it on for her. Melinda and Andy chose a very intimate ceremony in Forest Park for only their immediate family. It was not about the pomp and circumstance, but just about two people and the love they shared. They each had their sister stand up for them in lieu of a wedding party. Seriously it was just so perfect. I had the most time to shoot just the bride and groom than any other wedding I have shot. I loved this time with Melinda and Andy. Of course it would not be one of my summer weddings this year if it did not rain (actually had torrential rain). It was insanely sunny for their ceremony and then the sky got really dark after they said “I do.” It was funny at their dinner (didn’t do a reception) held at Scape, everyone’s phones kept going off with weather alerts! Nothing but good memories!
Thank you so much Melinda and Andy for letting me capture your special day. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love. I am so excited that you two found each other!
