Melissa, a Scituate Rhode Island native & Alex, a Lexington Kentucky original, met during their freshman year at the University of Chicago. Their love of cooking, basketball (Go Celtics!) and life, as well as finding themselves living on the same floor in their school building, helped to create an inseparable relationship.
They recently tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles CA, surrounded by close friends and family. Since Valentine’s Day is their 7th year anniversary, and Melissa & Alex are in the RI area again, Alex’s sister called me to set up a couple shoot as a gift to the newlyweds. I met them at Melissa’s parent’s home In North Scituate RI.
I loved being with these two, they were laughing and giggling and smooching like they just fell in love yesterday. I adore the way Alex looks at Melissa and Melissa has this glow that sort of reaches out and holds you tight like a hug! I am also quite in love with the fact that they are getting a puppy soon, a Corgi, whose name will be Waffles, Inspector Waffles!
Happy new journey to you both, thank you so much for welcoming me in to capture a little slice of your love story 🙂
Ciao & Love,
