I have been so excited since last night to share this story, so why wait?
When we met Anthony + Melanie for coffee at Watermark Books, we instantly knew they were our dream bride and groom. Their focus, instead of being on them, was about the relationships that they have with those around them. They wanted to stay true to who they were entirely, and not stray from what they felt in their heart.
The inspiration behind their day was to have an enormous and extravagant family picnic, that just happened to be centered around their wedding. It truly was just that. With giant replications of classic board games like sorry to an entire Frisbee Golf Course, there was absolutely no way that there wasn’t something for everyone to enjoy. Ashley + I were ecstatic the entire day, and couldn’t help but tell each other throughout the event that we can’t even believe that we’re working right now! It was a blast!
We strolled up the drive soaking in every second of the 77 degree afternoon. As our excitement escalated for the events to come, we couldn’t help but snag each and every memory to truly capture Anthony & Melanie’s wedding day for what it was: a secluded simple wedding filled to the brim with personal touches. Even the farm style benches built specifically for the occasion by Melanie’s step-father with the ceremony and reception all hosted at Melanie’s mother’s home. There wasn’t a single part of today that didn’t feel true to who Melanie and Anthony are as a couple… even mom’s pet Donkeys were special!
Last night’s wedding will go down as a favorite of ours, and we’ll cherish the memories even we made tonight forever!
