Melissa and Dave have known each other since grade school... Melissa's parents' house is a 5 minute drive from Dave's parents' lake house. (I really hope I deployed all those apostrophes properly.) They were long time friends and even went to prom together, but didn't start dating until a few years ago! I loved hearing all their family and friends talk about how perfectly they balance each other out, and I could definitely see it at the wedding... I can't believe it took so long for them to get together! They are just perfect for each other!
I met the ladies at Melissa's parents' house, where the incredibly talented Erica Abdo was working her makeup magic!
We went to the lake house for a while so the bridal party could hang out for a bit and we took a few photos as well. Everyone was really patient as I blasted them with the flash to balance out the super bright sun on the lake behind them! Thanks guys 🙂
We also hit up the lakefront by the Sherwood Inn, where the reception was held. We had some sweet light filtering through the trees... mmm, pretty.
The party at the Sherwood was outstanding, thanks to the guys from Ormond Entertainment.
This is a shot of Dave trying to coax his dad out onto the dance floor as his dad sort of shrinks back into a potted plant... right when I took it, all I could think of was one of my all time favorite gifs of Homer backing into a shrub. I mean, it's perfect right?
And this may be my all-time favorite dancing picture... perfect in every way! We can see both of their faces, got some flying Choos, I mean I couldn't ask for anything better. I don't even understand the physics of this move, but I love it.
Thanks so much for having me Melissa and Dave, have a wonderful honeymoon!!!
