Let me introduce Melissa + Matt by sharing that their Christmas card featured Matt’s beard with ornaments dangling from it. My favorite thing about this couple is that they aren’t afraid to be themselves.
They were married on land in rural Pennsylvania that has been in Melissa’s family for generations. I enjoyed listening to Melissa reminisce of childhood memories at the farm. It wasn’t a large wedding, but everyone that mattered to them was present, especially their dogs, Axel + Skynyrd.
We spent at least an hour exploring the property for photos with the last glimpse of the sun on the horizon. The evidence of our adventure clung to Melissa’s beautiful BHLDN gown. We returned to the pole barn, which had been transformed with M’s vision. Guests sat around the tables enjoying themselves as the night drew to an end.
With the campfire hot and drinks in hand, everyone studied the sky to watch fireworks dance with the stars.
