They met online, and once they got together in person, that was it—they were in love. The two of them are always busy—Derek as a state trooper for New Hampshire with a distinguished military career and Melissa as a paralegal—but the thing that shines through with both of them is their love not only for each other but for other people. Both of them have dedicated their lives to service, and it was even more amazing to see that side of them come out for the people they are closest to.
Bridgett from Pat’s Peak set up a beautiful wedding for these two—perfectly true to Melissa’s idea of what she wanted her dream wedding to be like. There’s something supremely satisfying about seeing a bride so pleased with the day, and Melissa was incredibly gracious and grateful.
Of course, the only drawback was the crazy weather that we got hit with. Mother Nature put on a ridiculous show for us—yet we persevered! But in the middle of all that, the sun came out, and it lit up the world with the most amazing rainbow.
Melissa & Derek, thank you for letting us be part of your wedding day! You were wonderful to brave the weather, and we wish you both nothing but the best.
