From the moment I met Melissa + Mike I just fell in love with them. They are so sweet to one another and make each other laugh a lot. Both Melissa + Mike had their own dogs, Buddy a chihuahua and Sam a Golden Retriever, who participated in their engagement session. Sadly little Buddy went over the rainbow bridge since then, but luckily we were able to get some very memorable photos with him, that I’m certain Melissa will treasure.
There small intimate wedding at Danfords was beautiful and perfect for them. They were surrounded by family and friends that mean the most to them and I’m so honored to have been chosen to capture it. Melissa + Mike, the two of you make a beautiful team and will have a great life together!
In Melissa’s words:
How did you meet:
What was your first date like:
Comfortable and easy
Tell us about how he proposed:
On Christmas Eve Mike and I usually open gifts from each other. Mike is an avid Mets fan so on 12/24/15 when I opened a present and found a Mr Met t-shirt I wasn’t surprised. I WAS surprised when a ring box fell out of the shirt as I pulled it out of the box. Then he knelled on one knee and asked me to marry him.
Advice to new couples:
Really listen to one another.
What makes your love special?
We can truly be ourselves around each other
