Melissa and Jeremy

The wedding of Melissa and Jeremy was a garden celebration with a heavy 1920s twist. Not only do the couple adore the era themselves, but they encouraged their guests to dress to the 1920’s style – from the bride’s short and beaded gown, to the jazz club at home reception. If you’re a fan of the gangsta, big band era, this may just be the most wonderful inspiration for your own celebration!

Photographs today are by Megan Alridge. I love how Megan captured the vintage feel of today’s celebration – Melissa’s bridal glow is so apparent and the happiness has soaked through every photograph.
