When Melissa called to tell us she was engaged, we were doubly excited!  Not only were we cheering for someone dear to our hearts (we’ve known her forever), we were thrilled for the privilege to capture her wedding day in pictures.  To make it even more special, her bridesmaids are all precious to us too – two of them are our former brides, one is a sister of two of our brides, and the other is our own daughter, Griffin!  Super fun!!  And, to top off all this ‘wonderfulness’, getting to know Aaron and his family was a true delight – we loved every one of them.  Yes, we have the best job ever …  Enjoy!  :D

Melissa and Aaron’s wedding weekend started off with a beautiful Bridesmaids Luncheon at The Swan Coach House and their evening Rehearsal Dinner at Maggiano’s.  The next morning was a flurry of rollers, make-up, and lots of laughter as everyone enjoyed their ‘getting ready’ time at Melissa’s lovely home ~

Melissa wore this beautiful wrap that belonged to her grandmother – so special!

And we know Melissa won’t mind us bragging on her ‘quick recovery’ as she juggled Aaron’s wedding band – we were all very impressed!  :D

After the ceremony we headed over to the beautiful Piedmont Estate and Gardens for their reception ~ Amy Bender and the entire staff of Legendary Events did an outstanding job ~ perfection at every turn!   And, the exquisite flowers were a labor of love from Melissa’s Uncle Curt and family friend, Velve Luuk.  Lovely!

Do they have cool parents or what?!  A First Dance judging score of ‘10′ and a surprise special dance from Aaron’s family!

Hans Daniel of Nice Guys DJ did a fabulous job of keeping everyone rockin’ out on the dance floor!

What a wonderful day!  Congratulations and hugs to Melissa and Aaron!!
