I will always remember Melissa as the bride who teared up when I replied to her inquiry to say we were available for her wedding date. She also emailed me a few months later and very gently asked me to blog. Hahahaha. I am an inconsistent blogger, we all know this by now. She said our blog helped ease her wedding planning stress. It took me a couple of weeks, but I managed to blog again. She’s such a genuinely sweet bride, how could I say no?
This was one of our happiest weddings to date. While Melissa was fixing up, I caught her literally skipping, humming the bridal march. Dude. I wanted to hug her. I love people in love. I love people who love being in love. This is what it’s all about.
John and Melissa were in a long distance relationship for 6 years before getting married. That’s a lot of Friendster, Yahoo Messenger, and Skype over the years. John would drive all the way from New Jersey just to see her in Toronto. The lovely maid-of-honor, who cried more than everyone else in this wedding combined, said something incredibly beautiful during the reception about how she would always be scared while riding in the car with John and Melissa, because he can never stop looking at her. She said that he always looked at her like he couldn’t believe she was his, and that was how he looked at her as she walked down the aisle. He actually clutched at his heart as she walked down the aisle and it was so charming, I was completely bowled over.
John and Melissa, we had such a great time at your wedding. You two are insanely adorable together, I can barely take it. We loved how your friends and families were in full support. There was so much love to be found in your midst, I can’t imagine a better way to start you off on your marriage. Jeff and I wish you both all the best, always.
