Fate struck Melyssa and Michael when they met as sophomores in their high school English class. Last summer, the two of them finally tied the knot with a beautiful wedding at Lake Mary Event Center.
Melyssa looked like a real-life princess in a strapless gown and hair and makeup by Gabriella Anthoney Design Artistry. The couple exchanged gifts and met up for a first look before their walk down the aisle. They even took some time in their day to spend with their adorable fur babies, who looked so happy to be there!
In place of a guest book, attendees signed a big wooden “t,” the first letter of Michael’s last name. The couple wed each other in front of Lake Mary Event Center’s towering windows, then it was outside for sunset portraits by the lake! Their reception decor was bright and airy with pastel blues and whites. After dinner, guests munched on treats from a dessert bar along with pie pops everyone received as favors.

From Bride, Melyssa:
What advice would you give other couples about the wedding planning process?
Everything will come together beautifully.
Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone.
Don’t worry about the small things, no one will know what didn’t work out.
If you are having a good time your guests will too. After all, they are there to celebrate you and your new spouse.
