Happy Monday everyone!!

I met Melissa & Branden back in November for their engagement photos. I’m still super obsessed with them, the photos and the couple! Melissa & Branden got married April 30th at the Linden Row Inn‘s court yard. Even though we got some rain at the end of the day, it’s still one of my favorite weddings.

First looks are always my favorite. If tradition is your thing, I definitely respect that, too. But first looks to me are a fantastic way to get the reaction from your groom of seeing you for the first time. Here’s Melissa & Branden’s first look!

Melissa also did a first look with her Dad. Isn’t it cute?

Melissa & Branden planned every single detail perfectly. From the favors and DIY bouquets to the BEAUTIFULLY decorated arbor. No detail was over looked!

The details went perfectly with the beautiful Linden Row Inn. The ceremony was short and sweet. A tear jerker for some of the guests 😉

You can’t talk about Melissa & Branden’s wedding without mentioning the great group of friends they had surrounding them!

Our bride and groom portrait session was near a door I used to walk past everyday. It’s the perfect place for portraits 🙂

The last thing left to do was the reception. This is when it drizzled on us. As you can tell these wedding guests and wedding party weren’t going to let that ruin anything!

And before we close, I feel like we need to include that a certain hockey game was also happening on April 30th. Don’t worry Branden, we covered that, too!
