Melissa and Mark begin the perfect day… Melissa had thorougly planned each detail of the wedding to be the perfect kick off to the rest of their lives. Little did they know life would through in a curve ball, as it often does, and it would rain a bit. Thankfully it was not enough rain to ruin their plans for an outdoor ceremony. Their ceremony was beautiful and within the words they spoke about love and life, you could see that this beautiful ceremony just had to be outside… we were so grateful the rain cleared for this special couple. Right now Melissa & Mark are in Cabo soaking up the sun and settling into wedded bliss.

This is the tree that Melissa & Mark originally wanted to have their ceremony under… it’s perfect!
So quickly this beautiful day changed to rain… Mark and Melissa’s dad look toward the sky with phones and weather radar in hand to wish the rain away.
They say rain on a wedding day is good luck, but we were still surprised to see this little message pop on Tom’s phone while watching the radar.
I love this moment!
The sun came out and the path was set for the ceremony!
