Lynn, MA & Salem, MA Wedding of Melissa & Forrest

{Back Blog} - Wedding Date: May 3, 2014

Location: The Rose Garden at Lynn Woods and Finz Restaurant in Salem, MA

It truly is such a small, lovely world. When Melissa reached out to me she said, "You took a photograph of my mother and I holding hands at Yogathon." With over 1,000 yogis participating in this annual charity event, you'd think I wouldn't remember but of course it was such a beautiful moment, I knew just what she was referring to.

When you meet with Melissa and Forrest, you see pure joy. They are the definition of always happy, always smiling. And even more than a wedding, they were planning for the birth of their baby this August. The ceremony was particularly exciting as they planned their gender reveal. When they cut their first piece of wedding cake to find pink frosting, they learned they were having a baby girl!

And, I can't help but mention that this wedding was completely vegetarian (just like me! ;)). Melissa has been vegan for many years and Forrest joined her by becoming a vegetarian soon after they began dating. Melissa's brother's toast joked that of course Melissa would bring home a man over 6' tall named Forrest!! :)

Many congratulations to Melissa, Forrest, and their families!

Huge shout out to all of the vendors that made this day possible!
