When I arrived at the bridal getting ready suite, Melissa had just sat down. Her hair and makeup had just been finished up and she looked so relaxed. You could tell she was READY for this day!
There was all sorts of excited hustle and bustle in the room. Her closest girlfriends took turns helping her get ready and let me tell you…she looked AMAZING in that dress!
Meanwhile, Mike and his guys were doing some getting ready of their own!
Melissa and Mike opted to do a First Look and I’m SO glad they did! I will NEVER get tired of seeing the reaction of the groom when he first lays his eyes on his beautiful bride!
These two were surrounded in love the ENTIRE day. Their bridal party was filled with family and lifelong friends. The littlest member of their party is especially important…he is their 2 1/2 year old son, Declan!
The time had finally come and the guests had arrived!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Brownlee!
