There’s no question that a bride’s wedding dress sets the tone for the entire day. Melissa chose an absolutely stunning soft pink gown which is definitely near the top of my favorite dress list! As soon as the bride & groom saw each other for the first time, I knew we were in for a wonderfully romantic day. As soon as we finished their fun photo session we headed off for Balzac’s coffee shop in the Distillery District for their intimate evening wedding. To make things even better, Melissa and Matt chose my all time favourite officiant Jeremy Citron (who officiated my own wedding!) to make things official!
