I went to school with Melissas’ sister, Katie. When I received an inquiry from Melissa that her and her fiance, James, were getting married and that her sister highly recommended she check out my website and give me a call, I was so excited to hear all about their wedding day details! 🥰
They booked their date and I had a great time getting to know the two of them leading up to their wedding day. Melissa was the quieter type but would giggle at James’ funny jokes and you could just see how much they adored each other. They informed me that they were getting married at Deerfield Country Club in Brockport and I was elated! Deerfield is STUNNING and has so many picturesque views and not to mention that the ladies I’ve talked to at Deerfield have always been nothing less than amazing!
I arrived on Saturday morning to Melissa and her girlfriends in Deerfields‘ private bridal suite; finishing up with the final touches of hair and makeup. I took Melissas’ dress up to the main entrance which I knew had a beautiful door decor in the entry way. We took some portraits of her gorgeous dress and went back to the bridal suite to capture Melissa getting ready and putting her final touches of jewelry on.
It was finally time to walk down the aisle. James and best man, Connor, made their way to the ceremony location. After their parents and Maid of Honor, Michelle, made their way down to the front. Melissa and her father came around the corner and James’ face lit up as he saw his beautiful Bride make her way to join him at the alter.
After an elegant ceremony, we spent some time with family portraits, bridal party portraits and completed our evening of portraits with just James and Melissa. We were able to take a couple golf carts out on the grounds so we could go to a pretty location that I knew of with a beautiful weeping willow. We finished our portraits and they waved goodbye as they made their way to their private reception with their closest friends and family.
Want to know the best part? We get to have another wedding with these two in June again when they can hopefully celebrate with more of their friends and family! 🥳 I am all for getting to wear your wedding dress a second time!
Congratulations to James and Melissa! I can’t wait to celebrate with you again in June! 🥰
Here are some of my absolute favorites from their day!
