Engaged! Melissa + Hunt

I have to give credit to the two awesome couples who are responsible for bringing my friend Melissa into my life!  Melissa was a bridesmaid in Alissa & Ben’s wedding, then a guest at Michelle & Tomi’s wedding… after bumping into each other over and over again, we finally figured it was time to hang out in person.  Melissa’s friendship has become really special to me, and I’m so happy to see her with a man who clearly loves her so much!

Since we became friends, Melissa would tell me all the stories about how much she loved Hunt, and how much she hoped he would propose… SOON!  So finally getting to see her with a ring on her finger was a really exciting moment, and meeting Hunt (who doesn’t live here in Atlanta) for the first time made me see exactly how perfect they are for one another!

A couple weeks ago Dan and I met up with Melissa and Hunt to make their engagement photos.  We started at Atmosphere, where Melissa and Hunt had their first date.  The nice folks at the bistro were kind enough to let us in before they had opened so we could snag a few photos!

Next stop: the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  When we got to the Gardens, the rain had just let up, and a faint rainbow appeared in the sky!

LOVE the Orchid House at the Botanical Gardens!  It’s perfect for rainy day photos!

We felt like it was only fitting that we be included in the last shot of the day!

Melissa and Hunt, we are SOOOOOOOOOOO excited to celebrate with you two in October!  You are absolutely perfect together, and we’re honored to be part of this journey with you!  OXOX

  7. Hunt and Melissa,
    Photos are beautiful – love the rainbow over you in one of the photos. I’m happy for you both and look forward to celebrating your upcoming marriage. I pray God’s blessings on you as you make your plans – really take time to enjoy this time. I’ve known and loved you Hunt since I met you (and your Mom and Dad) when you were 3 years old…..carpooling to School in the Woods!
