Derek & Melissa {married}

After 8 years of dating (much of which was long distance), Derek and Melissa finally woke up and prepared for their wedding day. Happily surrounded by her family and bridesmaids, Melissa eagerly prepared. Perfect touches were added in a last curl from her hair stylist, an excited hug from her sister and a beautiful cameo ring from her mother-in-law.213456Derek got ready in their home with his groomsmen and some family. Everyone was very relaxed and ready for the big day ahead of them.
