WEDDING WEDNESDAY - 509 BRIDE

Words from Misty
“We started the day at the gorgeous Lodge at Columbia Point. I am now convinced that is the perfect getting ready location for any Tri-cities wedding. It’s right off the water, and I don’t think you could find a more beautiful hotel in the area. It was a great way to start the day! Melina’s details were simple, but so beautiful and included a sweet homage to her late mother- her garter- which included her “borrowed” and “blue” items. She wanted to find a way to pay tribute to her mother, and did so in a few thoughtful little ways, that being just one of them. She also had one of the sweetest things I think I’ve ever photographed. A “book” that Greg had written for her.
When they were dating, Greg had written this book called “the girlfriend” for Melina. It was filled with sweet thoughts, poems, like the perfect journal of their relationship. He would write chapters for Melina on special dates like her birthday, anniversary, and Valentine’s day. That was until August, when they were on vacation in Costa Rica. Greg finished the book, but at the end of the chapter he explained why. He told her that he was starting a new book called “The Wife.” With that, he got down on one knee, and asked her to be his wife. Their kids celebrated with them and they all talked about how excited they were for this new chapter.
I was pretty excited to see a little glimpse of one of Greg’s books that he had written for Melina, and I knew I had to incorporate that into her details since it’s such a big part of them. And so sweet.”
