Will and Melissa {Married!}

FILED IN: Weddings

Hey internet! Sorry for being MIA for awhile, I was in California for a week doing several shoots and a wedding…which you will see up here eventually. Today I am posting a wedding of our very dear friends, Will and Melissa, that took place in Kansas at the Deer Creek Golf Club. Ever since their engagement shoot last September, David and I have really gotten to know this couple and they have become very close friends of ours. Will and Melissa are both from Kansas, and lucky for David and I moved out to California together. Over the past year, we have watched their relationship grow in so many ways and we know they could not be more perfect for each other. For those of you that don’t know them, all I can say is no one is like Will and Melissa. They are both some of the funniest, genuine and caring friends you will ever meet. It’s obvious to anyone that knows them this match was perfectly orchestrated. Will and Melissa, thank you so much for letting David and I be apart of such a big day, in your typical fashion you had me laughing and crying behind my camera at different points in the day. We love you guys, enjoy the pics!

Melissa you are so gorgeous. Inside and out.

Will and Melissa decided to have a first look and see each other before the wedding. This is such a nice intimate moment the bride and groom can share between just the two of them.

I wish there were more churches like this where I live. This little church made me feel like I was in an earlier time.
Will and his groomsmen were definitely some of the best guys I have had when it comes to posing.

Their getaway car.
One of my favorites.
David caught this awesome one, I love it.

One of my other favorites from the day.

Melissa you look HOT! Will you clean up pretty nicely too…
