It's hard for me to believe as I write this, but I have known Melanie for over 20 years now. We grew up together in a small town out in the country, where the hospitality was strong and everybody knew everybody. So when she contacted me to photograph her big day, I couldn't have been more excited.
Mel and Nick said their vows in front of their closest family and friends, overlooking a glistening pond, in the backyard of her childhood home and one thing is for sure, the willow trees weren't the only things that were weeping that day. From the nostalgia, to the "I do's", to the overwhelmingly emotional speeches, this wedding constantly had me wiping away tears from behind my camera.
Wishing you a beautiful forever Mr. and Mrs. Woytowich.
