Matt + Melissa’s Oungre Park wedding truly was a day filled with happiness and love!! From the first time I photographed them together it was easy to see how much they connected to and care about one another. Then taking their engagement photos at Oungre Park on the hottest day of last summer, there was much excitement to officially become husband and wife. As well as a family! Their wedding ceremony was very personalized and touching as Melissa started off reading a letter to Matt’s daughters. Finding her life partner includes a wonderful bonus of two beautiful girls and it’s sweet to see the way they adore their stepmom. With so much love shown to them too!
There was the perfect getting ready scenario with Melissa getting ready with the ladies and flower children at her Mom’s house and Matt with the groomsmen at the bride’s brother’s house which are on the same farm. An initial idea of a peacock wedding cake sparked the overall theme of their wedding day. Peacock feathers in the handmade bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, a hairpiece for the bride and the little girls couldn’t wait to get into their peacock-colored, poofy dresses. They floated around the rest of the day! It was cute to watch their reaction as the bride put on her beautiful, lace dress. On a hot, sunny 33 degrees Celsius summer day, the guys were happy that they chose to wear shorts and white shirts! Everyone did really well as it was a very hot day!! It was great that the day was planned with time between the dinner and program of their reception to head out for more photos around the park. Including the pups that are definitely part of their family too. Then headed back to celebrate and dance the evening away!
Matt + Melissa, we wish you years of happiness together. It was wonderful to capture your Oungre Park wedding and witness how happy and in love you two are! Congratulations on your marriage!!
