Melissa and Joe’s wedding

Last October I was able to help make Melissa and Joe’s wedding dreams come true.  Their wedding guests, everyone laughing and in great spirits even while chipping in to help execute the last minute details the day of, were my first indication that this was a well loved couple!  Melissa was such a joy on her wedding day, gracious, thankful, just so full of happiness!  Brides take note, your agenda for your wedding day is first and foremost to have FUN!  In turn all your guests and family members will have fun, and likewise all the people working to make your day the best it can be, will also have fun!  Which is exactly what we did and it shows doesn’t it?

The setting was one part whimsy to one equal part elegance.  I love a wedding that refuses to be stuffy despite being a first class destination affair.  Please feast your eyes on these gorgeous photos by Ileana and see more on her blog,  Attimi Photography.
