Josh and Melissa are absolutely adorable together. They share a big passion for running- so much so that they incorporated it into their wedding day and Josh even says that running had a part in how he fell in love with Melissa.
From Josh: “Melissa & I share a love of running. I fell in love during our first winter of long run Sunday’s together. We spent many hours on backroads and metro parks.”
We started the day off at Melissa’s parents’ house where the girls were getting ready. It was a beautiful Fall day outside!
Melissa was stunning in her fitted lace dress. I loved the beaded sheer sleeves. So gorgeous! The girls wore short navy dresses that flattered everyone so well!
Melissa’s mother allowed us to take this gorgeous chaise lounge sofa outside for some bridal portraits and we were so glad for it! How gorgeous is this bride?!
Josh got ready with the boys at the church as they awaited the ceremony. Josh looked so handsome in his suit and we LOVED the boutonnieres!
The ceremony was a traditional catholic mass at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. The look on Josh’s face as he saw his beautiful bride coming down the aisle- to die for!
The bouquets were handmade by the bride and her family/friends and were so stunning! The beautiful bright oranges, yellows, purples, and reds were perfect for fall and Melissa’s soft pink bouquet of dahlias was absolutely gorgeous.
We went to Dodge #4 State Park, a beautiful piece of property that sits along Cass Lake in Waterford to take photos. The vibrant orange leaves gave the perfect Fall look. We found numerous tall grassy fields that were the perfect backdrop!
Josh and Melissa’s love of running had to be a part of their day of course! The couple slipped out of their fancy shoes and into their favorite running shoes for some photos. So much fun!
Josh and Melissa’s reception decor was so adorable! Rustic fall decor of pumpkins, wood and gold were beautiful along with small hints of Michigan love!
During Josh and Melissa’s first dance, the wedding party along with other friends and family surrounded the two in a hand-held circle as they closed out their dance. So much love going around- it truly warmed the heart! Melissa mentioned it was one of her favorite parts of the day.
From the bride: “We were surrounded by our favorite people but Josh was the only one I noticed.”
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. MacGregor! You can truly feel the love between the two of you in your presence and we were so happy to be able to capture your special memories!
