Melissa & Matthew are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom’s story begins in the clouds, and now the sky is the limit for their new adventures.
Here is their story…
Matthew is a pilot, and Melissa used to be a flight attendant. When they met, there was an instant connection but they chose to build a friendship first because they were both in long term relationships at the time. When the time was eventually right, they began dating and Melissa says she knew right from the beginning that she would marry him someday.
Apparently, she was right.
Matthew proposed to Melissa in a restaurant in Boston but making a huge scene. He got all of the diners’ attention to tell them all how much he loved Melissa and wanted to be married to her. Awww!
They chose a destination wedding in Cancun because they wanted to get married on the beach somewhere warm. They envisioned the sunshine, happiness and lots of people! It was the crystal clear turquoise water in Cancun that won them over as a wedding location, and a smoking hot wedding day in July ended up exceeding their expectations.
Melissa’s hunt for beach wedding dresses had her feeling a bit overwhelmed. The dress she loved was out of her budget, and so she settled on another one she had found in a consignment store that needed a lot of alterations. But luckily, a follow-up visit to the same store in the hopes of finding a simple sundress to wear to her legal wedding ceremony in the States put her face to face with her dream dress, and it fit her perfectly!
Melissa, with help from her bridesmaids, went into DIY madness for her beach wedding details. They made welcome bags, starfish necklaces, hand-held fans, starfish boutonnieres and custom tumblers for all of the wedding guests. They were still frantically finishing the projects the day before the wedding! She advises future brides,
Do everything as EARLY as possible… Buy things as you decide on them. Make sure that you do a couple test runs before spending too much on materials.
The bride tells us that her favorite part of her wedding day was the First Look photo session. The moment was precious and intimate, and she gets tears in her eyes just thinking about it.
Melissa and Matthew, it has been so wonderful sharing this awesome moment in your lives. We wish you every happiness on the next adventure of starting your family together. Congratulations!
