Melissa & Mike celebrate love and marriage…in perfect sync

22 Jan
It was through our vintage lenses that we witnessed Melissa & Mike joyously marry on a beautiful September day. But our lenses can’t shield us from getting caught up (and emotional!) as we watch intimate and touching moments unfold over the course of a wedding day.

One such moment during M&M’s wedding was the couple’s first look. Seeing the groom become teary-eyed as he first saw his lovely bride-to-be was contagious. The moment was made even sweeter as Melissa remained calm and comforting and helped dry Mike’s tears of joy.

Melissa & Mike then travelled together to a church covered in gorgeous frescoes where they were crowned like royalty while making their vows. Afterwards, they let their personalities shine through by kicking off a glittering reception with an awesome first dance that brought their 300+ guests to their feet. It was the kind of classic happy ending you always hope for, made all the sweeter knowing this is just the beginning.

    Another excellent production to add to your already outstanding portfolio, Bridget! Everytime I see one of these it almost makes me want to get married again just so that we could have you film it for us … ALMOST! You definitely know how to do it right!

      Crying at my desk. In my office. Again.

      The way you captured their ‘first look’ is making me re-think my pre-mature thoughts on my own wedding– HIS REACTION!!! PRICELESS. Amazing, B!

        You are so sweet, Michelle, I just loved his reaction too! (And it’s never too early to start planning…)

      Thanks so much, Ed! One idea I’d personally love to have filmed would be a vow renewal on our 5 year wedding anniversary – am I giving you any ideas? ;)
