Melissa and Erik met through work, Erik actually works with Melissa’s father. It was an incredible, gorgeous day in the misty mountains of Western NC. The venue is a private residence in Clyde, NC, about 40 minutes west of Asheville. Their wedding fell on the same weekend that Eastern NC was getting drenched by Hurricane Matthew, but the mountain sky opened up with sunshine as Melissa walked down the aisle. Erik’s children were part of the ceremony as well. Melissa took a moment to let them know that she was so happy to become part of their family and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight.
Melissa arranged all the flowers and they incorporated a variety of personalized details such as boho dreamcatchers and groomsman boutonnieres with shotgun shells, made by the bride herself. They also had a nod to Star Wars with a prop Stormtrooper Helmet and Lightsabers! The reception was a party to end all parties, and the DJ played all the right songs all night long! Since I’m a little late at posting this blog, I’m happy to share that the couple just announced they are currently expecting their first child together!
