It’s Fri-YAY and I am so excited to share with you Melissa and Justin’s beach themed wedding held at the Blissful Meadows Country Club in Uxbridge, MA. When I arrived to the venue, I could not help but to think it was so adorable and very unique! The golf course was beautiful with little farm like décor throughout. I remember one of the first things I said to Melissa was how nice and cute everything was there emphasizing on the farm like features. She said to me, “I know, right?! That’s definitely one of the reasons we picked this place, it’s so cute!” I agree! It’s so cute!
Melissa and Justin met in College a little over 7 years ago. They both studied marine biology, which leads us to the beach theme wedding. They had such nice idea’s- one of my favorites being that after they said “I Do” and they walked back up the aisle, everyone tossed mini beach balls in the air as they made their exit as husband and wife! We had some fun with those beach balls during the bridal party portraits which was awesome as everyone was laughing!
Melissa’s beautiful gown was the 4th dress she tried on. She told me that once she put it on, she knew it was the one as it made her feel special and beautiful. She had her bride moment with the dress knowing that, that was it! She loved that they did not see each other before the ceremony and that getting to see each other for the first time as she walked toward Justin was her favorite part of the day!
This was the first wedding that I had Melissa do a first look with her dad. I have to say that for me, this was my favorite part of the day! They were not expecting to have this moment at all. It just Melissa, her mom helping her with the dress and dad, waiting with his back to her. As she patted his shoulder and he turned around, tears were all around. The love that poured out of her dad as he saw her for the first time was truly heartfelt and pure. I cried! The two of them share something very special and I was so happy I got to see that raw emotion on her wedding day.
Melissa and Justin, I am so honored you chose me to capture you wedding day! It was absolutely perfect in every way. Your family and guests were amazing and welcoming and I loved getting to celebrate with everyone! Yes…I may have joined in on the chicken dance at this one… how can you not?!
I am so excited to share with you some of my favorite photos from your wedding day!
