The sun was shining, and there was a light breeze. Melissa and Clayton stood back to back, having yet to see each other on their wedding day. They exchanged the vows they’d written each other, taking a silent moment to soak it all in; it was finally happening! Their special song started playing and they took two steps apart and turned to see each other. The emotions seemed to spill out of them, reveling in their love of the other and their excitement for the big day being here. It was the most heartfelt first look I’ve witnessed, and one could tell from any small section of watching Melissa and Clayton together that they are crazy about and perfect for each other.

Melissa and Clayton got married on the lawn overlooking the beautiful Lac La Belle golf course with their family and friends seated in a semi-circle around them. During the recessional, they paused half way down the aisle for an epic lavender toss which was such a fun touch to their ceremony! Following the start of their reception, we snuck out to the lake for some golden hour portraits- and I think they ended up being some of my favorite shots of the day!

The day was a wonderful culmination of months of planning, and I couldn’t be more excited to see Melissa and Clayton officially be husband and wife! Congrats you two on your special day and the start of your marriage. Cheers!
