"Greg was very polite and shook my hand when he introduced himself," Melissa said.
In her vows, Melissa repeated the words she wrote on the senior picture she gave to him. "I hope we're together for a long time." She couldn't have known then what her wedding day would look like, but she did know she had found a good one.
Melissa and Greg, your devotion and loyalty to each other is an inspiration to me. I hope you find much happiness in your new marriage! :)
Melissa practiced her vows while she got her hair done. It was so sweet. :)
The ceremony and reception were held at Chagrin Valley Athletic Club. The grounds are small, but there's lots of great nooks and crannies to shoot portraits. You'll see soon ...
I was slightly obsessed with Melissa's bouquet. You'll see it lots more in this post.
Melissa and Greg did a first look to allow more time for portraits and more time with their guests after the ceremony.
Love this one.
It was threatening rain all day, but right before the ceremony, the sun came out!
