AVALON YACHT CLUB WEDDING: ADAM + MELANIE

Where do you begin to describe a day where each moment is more beautiful than the last? Every moment and detail of Adam and Melanie's wedding was a tribute to them! From the hops boutonnieres that reflect Adam's love of brewing, to the oyster shells hinting at Melanie's passion for marine life, every thoughtful detail showcased their personalities and deep love for each other. Adam and Melanie, your love for your friends, your family, and each other is an inspiration, and we wish you both the best as you begin your lives together! <3

Before Melanie put on her gown, we captured a few beautiful bridal boudoir photos on film. Adam, I'm pretty sure you won the wife lottery!!!

Every getting ready space should look like this!! Swooon!

This moment between sisters makes me a little sad I had all brothers...

An emotional First Look with her dad, followed by one with her groom!

If you remember from Melanie and Adam's engagement session, their tandem bike is a huge part of their relationship! So much so that it made it into the lyrics of the sweetest song their bridesmaid Lyla sang for them at the rehearsal dinner! 

"Even if I had tiny little T-Rex arms
I'd find a way to hold you close.
Forever riding with you
On a bicycle built for two."
- Lyla Yaner

I'm so happy Chris snuck in a few behind-the-scenes photos too! That's-a-me, Cassio! :)

Best bouquet ever? It's definitely a contendahhh! 

Melanie's mom Denise created all of the incredible signs and custom artwork for the day! She's such an artist!

Love these oyster shell escort cards!

Their tandem bike cake topper was accurate down to the teeny-tiny replica RAR beer cans from the brewery where Adam works! 

The sun set slowly behind the couple creating the most beautiful golden-blue skyline! That color lingered as Melanie serenaded Adam with her beautiful voice!

Same-Day Slideshow reactions = FAVE!

Melanie and Adam, this day was magical in every way! THANK YOU for giving us the honor!! <3
