Gathered beneath the trees, at a picturesque family lake house, Melissa and Jim tied the knot after 3 years of being together.While perfecting her hair and makeup, Melissa’s niece was pampered with blush as well.Just LOOK at that smile on the right! Wow! BEAUTIFUL.And that Pinterest-worthy closet!As Jim anxiously awaited for his bride, guests were welcome to help themselves to a fan and to a jar of honey from Jim’s beehives.Melissa’s attendants included her sister, Kim, and her 2 nieces.During the ceremony, the littlest one wandered back down the aisle before her sister was able to scoop her up and return her :) I wasn’t quite sure if Melissa and Jim ever noticed though! :)Other than being married to each other, Melissa and Jim were most excited to be surrounded by so many friends and family on such an important day.
Among art museums, reading, and touring historic places, Melissa loves to travel– especially to Europe.Each table was assigned the name of a city in which Melissa and Jim have traveled to together, including Venice, Paris, Verona, and London to name a few!The event was catered by Rockman’s Catering and included personalized pasta and carving stations; and their cake was designed by 2510 Bakery!Jim and Melissa’s big proposal happened in Venice, Italy on a balcony overlooking the city! As Melissa confirmed, “It was very romantic!”During dinner, we headed down to the lake for some nighttime portraits…And a short while later, Melissa and Jim–along with their guests–released Chinese lanterns into the night sky.
