This might be one of our favorite weddings of the year so far! Melissa and Eric were married at the Paramount Country Club, nestled in the magnificent woodland hills right outside of New York City. Mel is a fashion designer, and Eric himself has impeccable tastes, so as you can imagine, everything about their day was beautiful!
It was especially an honor to photograph this wedding because Mel has been following our work for the past 4 years. And before Eric asked her out, she already knew she wanted us to shoot her big day. It was such an immense privilege (and a bit of pressure! haha) to be their wedding photographer. It definitely helped that Eric is a rather chill, easy-going guy. And Mel just has that infectious, bubbly personality that brightens up any room she’s in. Lovely! :)

Also … they’re used to this by now. But before anybody says anything, they’re actually both over 25 years old. =P
You see that beautiful dress? Melissa designed and made it entirely by herself. How amazing is that???
Awesome jump attack coming from the left!

And as a second surprise, he also bought her the green Louboutins she had been eyeing for a while.
