These two know the importance of words and wrote so many kind letters to each other and to their parents. I’m a sucker for words because I’m an english major; however, I think there is a real timelessness in letters that I could talk about for forever and ever. Imagine one day showing your grandkids the letter that you wrote to their grandmother sixty years ago—what a legacy of love!
Melody + Dan’s wedding day had so many sweet children present. I think there is something really cool about seeing a wedding day through the eyes of children. The excitement, the food, the dancing, it is all magnified one thousand percent when you look at it through the eyes of children.
Melody + Dan’s Elmhirst Resort wedding in Keene, Ontario served perfectly for their day and offered so many unique photo locations and an overall cottage-vibe-cuteness. I was floored with the service as well as their team took every effort to make sure that they had what they needed and would do whatever they could to make Mel + Dan’s day as awesome as it possibly could be. Highly recommend!
Moments before their Elmhirst Resort Wedding, the heavens opened and their outdoor ceremony had to be moved indoors; however, it didn’t put a damper on their day as they just wanted to be married and enjoy every single moment of their wedding day with their friends and family. And this is another reason why I love these two. I think too often it’s so easy to get caught up in everything being perfect for your wedding day—but when it comes down to it, your wedding day is only one day of the rest of your lives together and it will be perfect because you are marrying your best friend. When things go wrong or slightly off plan on a wedding day, it reminds me of life and how things don’t always go according to plan; however, how you look at it and handle things when they do go slightly off kilter makes all the difference. As does holding on close to the one you love most and remembering that what matters most is support and love for each other.
Mel + Dan, you two have my hearts. Thank you for trusting me with your story. <3
