What an amazing wedding! I loved getting to work with Melissa & Todd! After we met, I remember thinking, "Please book me!" These were just two of the most fun, and genuine people to hang out with over a cup of coffee, and I couldn't wait to be a part of their big day!
Then I found out that they had hired some more of my FAVORITE vendors, so I really KNEW that this day was going to be off-the-hook awesome!
And it was.
Held at the gardens on MSU's campus in East Lansing, they had a gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding! Music runs deep in this family, so it was a special surprise to Melissa when her brother stood up and played the processional on his acoustic guitar for her. Followed by the beautiful ceremony was a cocktail hour and then reception that just couldn't be beat. The dances were great, and I especially loved watching Todd's mom sing the lyrics of their song directly to him while they danced.
Following the formal dances was some party time, and then another surprise for Melissa, as Todd and the bridesmaids serenaded her with Covergirl by New Kids on the Block! Since Melissa sings professionally in a band, music was of great importance throughout the day.
This video, like many I've been posting lately is just a SMALL snippet of the amazing day that unfolded, and I had so much more footage that I wanted to include, but I guess some things will just have to wait for the final video. ;) Enjoy!
