How did you meet?

Boy meets girl, perfect woman type of love story. My best friend was in the middle of moving and needed my help, so I went over to help her and that’s when I saw him (my future husband). He was so sweet, kind and handsome.  He invited me out on a date to a Prince Royce concert. I had a blast; one of the best nights of my life, and ever since we went on that date, we have been inseparable.

He was always there for me, and would bring me flowers, lunch, and we had long talks on the phone. (He really spoils me!) I remember the day I met his Mom. I was so scared and nervous as she’s a very old- school, traditional lady. But she turned out to be very sweet, and loves me.  Now she says I’m her daughter! I knew I was going to marry him, and the first time I told my Mom about him it came out just like this “I just met the man I’m going to marry.” We got married six years later, and I’m the luckiest girl in the world.

Melissa and Rafael are very “high energy, VIP, party til you drop type of people”  We wanted to bring that out in their wedding.  What Melissa knew for sure was that she wanted her colours to be Mint Green and Gold, but left the rest up to me.  I enlisted the help of Celeste Gregory of Ambience Décor, and she truly brought my vision to fruition with all the amazing design details.
