Last month I was lucky enough to take a road trip to Kansas City, MO and see my best friend, Jeff, marry the absolute BEST woman, Melinda. I met both Jeff and Mel separately in an online Bible study, and it didn't take too many times having Jeff gush to me about how he felt about Mel that I called it: they were going to get married. I feel so honored to have witnessed their relationship from the beginning and to have seen them grow as individuals and as a couple!
As much as I'm a wedding planner at heart, it was so nice to be able to go to a wedding without having to work the wedding, and I loved witnessing Jeff and Melinda's wedding as a friend and a guest.
I usually use my community page to feature weddings and wedding vendors in my local community, but I felt so at home it felt like it was taking place right down the street from me. The wedding wedding was in Missouri, I came from Chicago, the photographer came from Ohio, and it was just one happy mid-western family.
Michelle Joy Photo did an AMAZING job capturing Jeff and Mel's day,
and she was SO generous in letting my friend Bekah and I follow her around and take our own photos (in exchange for wedding dress fluffing and bouquet holding, of course!)
Here are some of my favorites of Michelle's shoot. Enjoy!
