Before Melissa and Kyle came together to profess their vows, one thing captured me before anything else: Melissa's endearing relationships with her family and friends. Melissa and her "fab 5" group of gal pals share an unbreakable sisterhood full of unfailing support, compassion to during times of defeat, and mutual joy to pop a bottle of bubbly (or two) in celebration of triumphs!! It really is a beautiful thing to observe...women uplifting other women! And of course...Kyle..what isn't there to love about this one? They say a measure of a strong man is how gently he loves his woman...and he loves Melissa in the most tender and sweet way possible. Their Folktale Winery Wedding in Carmel was the most enchanting day...and I loved every moment of being a part of it. xo
Proposal story from the couple:
"He drove along Ocean Avenue while the sun was setting and asked me to walk with him before dinner. We got out of the truck and walked down to the path along the ocean where he got down on his knee and told me the best things I have ever heard in my life. He told me about the first time he ever saw me, about how I am his best friend, and why he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. It was perfect!! I cried (A LOT) and after calling our families he took me to dinner (with reservations that I, the micro manager DIDN'T know about ;) at Sardine Factory in Monterey. We spent the rest of the night talking about the wedding we would plan and also about starting our family afterward. So much fun to reminisce!!!"
