Bengt proposed to Melissa at a beautiful vineyard, while they were on a trip with her family – so naturally, they decided to become man and wife in the exact same spot! Ben and Mel were married on a blazing-hot Nebraska day at Slattery Vintage Estates, in one of the most beautifully emotional ceremonies I’ve ever had the privilege to attend. This bride and groom are professional performers, and so many of Ben and Mel’s close friends are highly talented singers. Their ceremony was filled with incredibly moving musical and vocal pieces, which really showed how much Ben and Mel meant to their friends. These two have a LOT of personality (especially Mel’s self-described “sass” which was mentioned in their unique wedding vows more than once!), and it seriously came through in their wedding day! I loved the vivid blue hydrangeas and Ben’s royal blue suit!
Many thanks to my amazing second shooter Elayne Woods, who braved the heat and helped me capture this day. Also thanks to the wonderful groomsman who raised his voice louder than I could, and helped me round up the big family groups!
