THE MEETING

IMG_0973.jpgMelanie & Matt first met when she was 17 and they were both playing on a co-ed softball team.

THE ATTRACTION

Matt was definitely interested first. I actually had a boyfriend and he was so persistent to take me on a date that I finally wore down, dumped my boyfriend, and went on a date with him.

THE MOMENT

I knew I was going to marry him when I met him. It wasn’t love at first sight, BUT I knew deep down that he’d be something special. 10 years later and we are still best friends.

THE QUIRKIEST THINGS

He’s such a goof. He has a bubblegum obsession and I’m the “handy man” of the house!

THE I LOVE YOUIMG_0991-2

I said it first, 2 months after we met. It took him a month after me!

THE PROPOSAL

It happened at The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland! The movie Up was one of the first movies we had seen together and the Cliffs of Moher resemble the movie…the ring was in a tiny “Adventure Book” from the movie.

THE WEDDING DAY

The best part of the day was being alone, taking photos on the balcony. It was so nice to step out of the chaos and enjoy the moment together.

THE ATTIRE

All of the suits were from The Black Tux and all of the bridesmaid dresses were from Lulus. My dress was from Here Comes the Bride.

THE VENUE

We chose it because the aesthetic is totally us—unconventional, edgy, and rustic is everything we dreamed of for our venue.

THE SHOUTOUTS

Uncle Bub’s was amazing! Colette Marie Photography NAILED all of our photos._DSC9417.jpg Obviously, Lauren was the biggest help ever. I don’t think our wedding would have been would have been what it was without her.

The MARRIAGE

There’s definitely a sense of relief that we no longer have anxiousness toward major events. It’s relaxing to know that we have forever together.

THE ADVICE

 Love each other. Throughout the whole wedding planning process, always remember WHY you’re doing it. It’s not about the linen colors, it’s about sharing your love and committing to forever.
