Melissa Loves Dave : Bournedale Wedding

Melissa and David’s fall wedding at Bournedale in Plymouth, MA is one of our favorites from 2016. These two define fun-loving, adventurous couples in love and are everything we hope for when we photograph weddings. We wish for laughter, and joy, and down-to-earth couples with big hearts for the people in their lives. This is Melissa and David to a T!

The day started in the cabins on the property where hair and make-up was done and the guys hung out. Melissa got dressed with her sister and it was incredibly sweet and intimate moment for the two of them. Dave and his best man were making sure everything was set in the hall with all their DIY details before getting ready themselves right next door. The weather was a warm 50 degrees which was such a treat for an November wedding day! The foliage was stunningly bright and was the perfect backdrop for their sweet first look. The ceremony overlooked the lake and their rustic and personal touches gave all their guests big smiles. They read their own vows to one another. After the ceremony we took family and wedding party photos and we even had time for more bride and groom portraits!! The sky was pastel at sunset as the newlyweds snuggled on the dock, making it seem like they were floating on the lake {swoon}. After we wrapped up some portraits we then went to the hall to get the party started!

Melissa and David met online a year ago on a fun site called Coffee Meets Bagel. Melissa loves that Dave is her Renaissance Man: tech-savy and helpful around the house. Dave loves that Melissa is adventurous and loves to try new things. She startles easily, which he finds adorable. They enjoy going for walks and traveling together. After a year of dating, they took the next step. David popped the question with his great-grandmother’s beautiful diamond ring, and Melissa obviously said YES! We were outstandingly lucky to have a beautiful spring engagement session among the lilacs at the Arboretum in Boston, MA and their wedding day was even more perfect!

We are so happy to have photographed this rustic fall wedding celebrating such an awesome couple. Congratulations, Mr. + Mrs. Andrews!
