Before I can share Melissa and Matt’s photos with you, I have to give credit where credit is due. A few months ago, my friend Jacqui sent me an email. She said Melissa and Matt were getting married and were planning to come to DC for their honeymoon. She wanted to know if she could give them a gift certificate to have photos done while they were in town. What a freaking brilliant idea. Of course we can do that! So I made up a gift certificate and sent it off to Jacqui, and since then have been trying to figure out ways I can get her to quit her super-smart-science-y job and come do my marketing for me.
I was actually really nervous that meeting up with Melissa and Matt wouldn’t happen, or if it did, we’d get washed away in the process. The week they were in town was incredibly rainy and we had to postpone our first scheduled meeting. In the end, though, it was a good thing we did – because the weather we had when we did meet up was perfect!
The first thing I had to ask them was “Why DC?” I’ve lived here for almost 10 years and, while I love the city, I don’t particularly think of it as a hot honeymoon destination. The answer? Melissa said, “I’m a huge dork, and he just goes along with it”. Love this! They are truly a wonderful couple – you could tell how much fun they have together and how excited they were to be married and on their dorky honeymoon :) I’m so glad I got to spend time with them while they were here.
And now I will shut up and let you just look at the pictures. That’s why you’re here anyway!
I want Melissa’s fab green dress. And her gorgeous eyes, too, please.
