It was almost officially summer as we celebrated with Melissa and Matt on their beautiful wedding day. These two sweethearts knew right from the beginning of their relationship that they would be spending the rest of their lives together. They couldn’t have picked a more favorable, more perfect day for their delightful wedding event!
We began our day filming Melissa in her personalized white robe and her bridesmaids in their initialed, matching waffle knit robes getting ready for the big day. We love it when the bride and bridesmaids wear customized or matching robes! It just makes this part of the day even more special. We were so happy to be there to capture the moment Melissa was presented with the gift of a beautifully designed photo album.
It was time then to dress for the event! Melissa wore such a gorgeous wedding gown! It featured delicate embroidery and a flower detail on the sash, which was tied into a lovely bow in the back. She completed her outfit with sparkling silver shoes, pearl jewelry and a beautiful flower accessory in her hair. In keeping with this year's fantastic trend, she wore a graceful veil on the back of her hair. Fresh, bright blooms in pinks, peaches, white and lavender filled their beautiful bouquets, courtesy of Debbie Bitler. And once her bridal party dressed in their matching long coral dresses, it was time to meet the groom at the altar!
At Annunciation Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Bellmawr, Matt and his groomsmen waited wearing matching gray suits, with Matt in a distinctive white tie. The groomsmen wore bright coral vests to match the bridesmaids (and although you couldn't see here, they each wore vividly colored and patterned socks to liven up their wardrobe!). Melissa and Matt's ceremony was traditional and touching. We were so honored to have been witnesses to their exchange of vows.
After a special bubble salute send off from the church, we were so happy the weather was so ideal for photos and video at Lakeview Memorial Park. With the rocks and the lake as the backdrop, the wedding party posed for awesome shots for Amy Wolfe Photography. They all had so much fun doing it too! Check out some of her photos of Melissa and Matt's wedding on her Facebook page!
Melissa and Matt chose to hold their reception at The Merion in Cinnaminson. Their first dance together as husband and wife was touching to watch, as well as the dances shared by Melissa and her father and Matt with his mother. And it was so hard to keep a dry eye listening to the toasts from the maid of honor and best man. You just knew a lot of thought and emotion poured over writing those heartfelt words. Center Stage Entertainment did a spectacular job as always in providing this evening's music and entertainment, as special touches included a tribute to Melissa's parents on their anniversary. The remainder of the evening was spent laughing, celebrating and dancing the night away!
Congratulations to Melissa and Matt! May the love you share today continue to grow forever.
