Are you ready?  This post is going to be a long one:)

Meet Joel and Melanie!  They have been planning their Amyway wedding for quite some time and it was beautiful!  They not only got ready there, but held the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the Amway!  It was a nice change of pace to have everything all in the same location!

Melanie and Joel are clearly in love.  They did not need a whole lot of direction and eagerly snuggled and kissed like no one was watching!  I just love that!

We had a perfect overcast day and even though it was freezing…we braved the cold and ventured out for some shots!  My fabulous friend and awesome photographer, Kerri Banyas , was by my side and we had such a fun time with everyone!

Thank you, Joel and Melanie and your friends and family for being so wonderful!  A fun time was had by all!

blessings,

kellyb.
