I received the text message in the wee hours of the morning... and a photo of her gorgeous ring!!! EEEEEEK!!!! I seriously could not have been more excited. This BFF and I go way back, I mean like waaaaaay back to the ages of 3 and 7 when we formed a bond that would last a lifetime. We have laughed, we have cried, we have partied, beached it, had each others' backs and shared the best of secrets through the decades... soooo when I received the news that my dearest friend, Melanie, was engaged I was litereally beaming with joy!!
Her fiancé, Damon, has a heart of gold, which is a good thing because it's the perfect match. I have always described Melanie as that charismatic, bubbly girl with the biggest heart across this land. I seriously can't say enough extraordinary things about her soul ~ she is the epitome of true friendship. I am beyond blessed to have crossed paths with this beautiful individual at such an early age ♥
Damon and Melanie met through a friend about a year ago and after that initial meeting, they were hooked and there was no looking back. Damon had carefully and quietly planned a surprise proposal on their recent trip to New York City, on a Broadway stage, in front of hundreds! And without hesitation, of course, she said YES!! Shortly after their New York trip, they scheduled a visit to my neck of the woods, where we were able to document this lifetime milestone. Melanie and Damon are planning a 2017 wedding and it's gonna be one heckuva celebration! Congratulations Bubba...you know I love ya to the moon & back!!
Here are a few of my favorites from their session...
