Alan + Melissa

Alan and Melissa tied the knot on the first of July! These two are seriously the sweetest! As soon as I met Melissa I was super excited to capture her wedding, she has such a genuine personality !

The day began with Melissa and her bridesmaids getting ready at Bella Mia salon in Lake Saint Louis, MO. The girls were laughing and sharing memories as they sipped on mimosas. Melissa and her bridesmaids all wore floral robes as they got ready at the salon. Once make up and hair was done the girls went outside to take a jello shot they all made the night before. After the Jello shots Melissa got into her dress so she could do a first look with her dad. There was this little wood area that was perfect for her first look with her dad. When Melissa saw her dad she had the sweetest smile ever! After the first look and some detail shots of Melissa in her dress it was time to leave for the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at Quail Ridge Lodge in Wentzville, MO. The ceremony was indoor in front of these big windows that overlooked the park area. The weather was perfect for July not too hot and not too sunny. When the ceremony completed the wedding party and family all went outside for pictures. The wedding party was laughing and having so much fun! We would come up with jokes and everyone was laughing. Melissa and Alan share so much love. They have 3 sweet children and they are the cutest! The night ended with Jello shots and tons of dancing on the dance floor! Congrats to Melissa and Alan!
