We shot Justin & Melissa's wedding on June 3rd at New Church in Oklahoma City. From the moment we met this couple, we knew it would be a great wedding. They are so well suited for each other, and just generally fun to be around.
Melissa and Justin have known each other since elementary school, their sisters are good friends! But they never talked until their senior year of high school. Melissa made Justin's locker sign that year, and they started talking more and more. The rest is history. You can see more of their love story here.
Melissa envisioned a day that reflected their joy, commitment and love for each other. She wanted to keep things simple, vintage and rustic, and she absolutely succeeded!
Melissa's advice for other brides-to-be is not to stress so much. "Just remember, at the end of the day, you'll still be married and that's all that matters. The wedding is just one day, your marriage is forever."
A couple of fun things to watch for in the video are the Bride and Father Dance and the Garter Toss. For the Garter Toss, Justin stretched the garter around a football and threw it into the crowd of guys. We had never seen that done before, and thought is was a great idea that suited them perfectly. For the Bride and Father dance, Melissa and her dad brought out a big surprise as a record scratch transitioned from your typical slow dance to a mix of up beat dance themes. It was so much fun watching Father and Daughter dance to the Wobble. We loved capturing every moment of their wonderful day, and we hope you enjoy the video!
