Chris & Melissa {Wedding}

"The Lord has promised good to me." 

Melissa is a free spirited dreamer, with a caring and traditional heart.  Chris is empathetic, relaxed, and all for adventure.   They met at their college (I also met Melissa there, since my brother attended the same school)  where Melissa helped lead in the Campus Crusade Ministry.  After her leave, Chris took over, and he also took over and won Melissa's heart at the same time.  Within the first date, Melissa knew Chris was the one, and Chris was sure Melissa was the girl he'd want to care for, love, and serve God with. Their relationship held so many joys, but also much separation, as Melissa traveled to Bolivia, away from Chris, to teach at a school there.  Chris went after his girl, proposed to her there in South America, and they knew soon she'd come back and marry that thoughtful, wonderful man.  This is where their story begins.

Melissa will always have a special place in my heart, and I could devote an entire blog post just for our relationship.  I've written this post for them 3 different times, and so many images have been put in, only to be taken out again.  I'm proud of their images and wish I could share them all.  One of the things I was most grateful for their day was Melissa's bridal party.  They were the best bridal party i've had the pleasure to work with, and I could devote a good paragraph just for them.  I could also tell of what an amazing bride Melissa was, and how her confidence and trust in my photographic abilities meant the world.  But I really want to focus on them, and them alone.  Their day was romantic, smooth, classic, exuberantly joyful, and beautiful.  I decided to blog a little differently than my normal "crazy beautiful life" style, because I feel that these are the images from their day that captured those words best.
