Rose Hill Manor was quiet when we arrived, but it wouldn’t stay that way for long! Soon enough, the venue was bustling with energy, Melissa beaming because this day that she had waited for and planned for and not known if it would happen was FINALLY here! Once she stepped into her dress, the smile wouldn’t leave her face for the next 8 hours! She said she wanted time to speed up so she could get to the church to marry Keith, but also desperately wanted it to slow down so this day could last forever. Meanwhile, Keith read his letter from Mel, overcome with emotion. Overwhelmed at what the day was going to bring.
When Mel walked down the aisle, Keith could not contain his emotion. He told her how beautiful she was as soon as she reached him. They smiled wide smiles at each other as the officiant retold their love story. And suddenly, they were husband and wife! The rest of the evening was full to the brim of hugs and laughter and a feeling of family. The room felt familiar and inviting – like a big reunion! Almost all of their favorite people in one room. It was a beautiful evening and an even better first day of marriage for Keith and Mel!
We had the best time with Keith and Mel! They threw a safe and thoughtful celebration that honored their love for each other. There was such a sense of family in the room that it felt like a privilege to be there for them! Congratulations you two!
Loved all these sweet details. Lace from her mother’s dress sewed into her own.
