This super sweet couple, Melissa and Justin, who met while attending West Virginia University, chose to have their wedding ceremony and reception at the Governor Calvert House, one of the Historic Inns of Annapolis, because – according to the bride – “it’s such a unique space and in a prime location.”
These college sweethearts became the best of friends while both were in the marching band at WVU. Justin played trumpet and Melissa was in the color guard. After building upon their friendship, they realized that they were meant to be more than friends, and the rest, is history! The two talked about their undeniable connection in their beautiful and tear jerking wedding vows.
Justin proposed to Melissa on Virginia Beach. He left messages for her in bottles along the beach that led her to him, where he then surprised her with his proposal.
Congratulations, Melissa & Justin! It was an honor to be your wedding photographer!
