She has a gentle and sweet demeanor. He loves that about her. Not to mention her smile when she looks at him. He makes her smile that smile a lot. She loves that about him along with his sense of humor and thoughtfulness. The love that Melissa and Mark have for one another couldn’t have been any more apparent then on their wedding day. They both smiled, laughed, and displayed a sheer happiness that was tangible. The two exchanged symbols of their commitment and love to one another in a beautiful ceremony. They were officially Mr & Mrs.
With their wedding bands on their fingers they shared an incredible first dance that didn’t leave a dry eye among their family and friends. The dance was followed by fabulous food, dancing, and music by the incredible Naked Souls band during their Whitby Castle wedding reception!
Melissa & Mark – Thank you for being the incredible couple you are and for having us capture the sweet and beautiful moments of your wedding. Congrats!
I was thrilled Melissa & Mark decided to do a First Look and see one another in a private intimate moment before their ceremony. It was so emotional and beautiful as Mark turned around to see Melissa and without saying a word they embraced with tears rolling down both of their cheeks.
Holy smokes Melissa… GORGEOUS!
Because they decided to do a First Look we had plenty of time for more photos of the two of them during the golden hour before sunset when the light is soft, warm, and…. golden. : )
