"I have never experienced unconditional love and support like I have with Eric. He makes me feel treasured and safe."   - Melissa 

Everyone deserves true happiness - but I will tell you, Melissa + Eric really, REALLY deserve it. When I first met them in the fall of last year, they informed me about their journey that led them to each other. They both had been married before - he has  2girls, she has 4 boys. They met on and became your modern day Brady Bunch. Within just minutes of talking, I could already tell how genuinely sweet these two were. They made wedding talk so laid back and simple. Instead of a typical engagement session, they requested a family session in it's place - because this wasn't just about them. It was about their families joining as one - and I really respect that about Eric and Melissa.

On to their beautiful day... they tied the knot in an intimate outdoor ceremony on the shore of Gun Lake. Everything went so smoothly - honestly, more smooth than I've seen at a wedding.. ever. I assume that has to do with how laid back they both are. But it wasn't just them and their venue that was so amazing.. Their friends and family went above and beyond to show me kindness. I had a wardrobe malfunction happen at the very beginning of the day and everyone from the mother of the bride, to the kick ass DJ (Hey Kate!) - were all so willing to help me throughout the day to keep things "in place" lol
