I met Melissa at this cute little Tarot Card café that had a catchy name and a good witches brew aka coffee. Actually, neither of us knew what kind of place it was but agreed to meet there due to the location so we were a little surprised. The good news was that she hired me to be their wedding photographer!

For their engagement photos, we chose Curtis Hixon Park on a Sunday. I arrived a little early and was watching people walk by me with their yoga mats and I kept thinking, “Wow, that must be a big class!” That’s an understatement because I learned that every Sunday, Curtis Hixon park has a huge yoga class and I’m talking over a hundred people. Everyone seemed to know that but yours truly.

Fast forward to their wedding day and it was an elegant, non-traditional wedding. That simply means that Melissa decided upon a cupcake bar as opposed to a wedding cake, delectable food stations in exchange for served dinners, and scratched the bouquet toss! I find more brides passing on the traditions like the garter and bouquet toss which is a solid sign that some of the old traditions are being replaced. I find that to be a welcome as long as there is love, it’s really about celebrating that in the way that just feels right. I suppose that’s different for everyone and for Melissa and Mark, they focused on the love and warmth from all of their friends and family. The wedding was absolutely perfect in every way!
