Melissa + Sean were married on an absolutely beautiful Fall day in the most amazing location I’ve ever laid eyes on: the botanical gardens at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Southern California. They had a very meaningful handfasting ceremony, during which the entire family surrounded them at the altar, placing their hands together in a show of unity. Sean and his family are from France and England, and Melissa’s are from Las Vegas and Texas. The sense of two families joining together to celebrate their union was unreal. The best part of the night, for me, was the EPIC cake-face-smash. Sean pegged Melissa right in the face with frosting, but don’t worry, she got him back! At one point, Sean mistakenly cleaned frosting off his face with Melissa’s veil! But did she get mad? No – she laughed so hard tears came out and kissed her husband. What an awesome couple.
Melissa is an artist and writer, Sean is a musician and together they make an intellectual, creative couple. Not to mention their affection towards each other is something to behold – the way they share glances, laugh together and have romantic, spontaneous moments is so beautiful. Best of luck to you two – amazing things are in store for you!
