Henry & Melissa's Wedding

Westchester, NY

Shonoi and I photographed this beautiful couple's wedding day last Sunday and it was truly an honor to do so.  We met them back in 2011 while Melissa was a bridesmaid and Henry was a groomsman in Hugh and Genel Rowe's wedding.  Henry called me up earlier this year and commissioned us to photograph his engagement and wedding day.  We specialize in Sunday weddings specifically so after resting up on the Saturday before their wedding day, we were ready to document their special memories.    It was a great experience and we are very happy for the newly weds.  Thanks to all the awesome vendors that made this possible; see the list at the bottom of this post.  So grateful! Enjoy.

What do you find the most attractive about your partner?

 How did you know your partner was the one?

Melissa: I prayed a lot about it and studied his character: how he handles tough situations, whether he believes in God and tries to follow Him, how he treats his mother, things like that. Also, whether or not the love he professes is actually demonstrated in his actions towards me. Too many people rush into relationships and into marriage without really knowing their partners. I am part of the fortunate few to be marrying my best friend.

Henry: I knew she was the one because she reflects the essence of Proverbs 31. I knew I loved her but I wanted to know if she was the right one for me and the only way to know that is seeking the Lord. Thus, I found my answer.

What are you looking forward to doing together once you are married?

Melissa: The vacation. We both need to relax after the craziness of this wedding. And definitely life after the wedding and the memories made therein.

Henry: I'd be lying to you if i said I wasn't looking forward to the honeymoon. LOL! But more importantly, seeing what our first few years of our marriage would be like.

Faith, Hope, & Love.
