I could photograph Emily and John all the time and never tire of them. They are truly some of the most kindhearted people I’ve ever met! Softspoken, always smiling, caring, loving, and full of joy – these two are a breath of fresh air. Emily and John never focus on themselves, as they are completely selfless and loving towards one another, their friends, and their families. Even on their own wedding day, when all the attention was on them, they kept a close eye on the other – always making sure they were okay and taken care of. And walked around with smiles they couldn’t shake! (John’s smile is just the best. He couldn’t hide it if he tried!) They are the perfect fit for one another. The focus of their reception was undoubtedly their guests, and boy did they have a good time! I’ve never seen such dancing in my life! 99.9% of the guests were on the dance floor 99.9% of the time. It was an exciting celebration enjoyed by all. Every aspect of this wedding was beautiful and full of joy. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Melvin!

Below: I had to include this sweet photograph of Emily’s brick, right next to her grandmother’s brick. These were located just a few steps from St. Mary’s Chapel. I love it when couples choose to get married in places full of meaning and heritage!

Oh, how I love that little chapel. I spent every Tuesday and Friday in that space for four years. You captured it beautifully.
