Melanie + Matt

featured on green wedding shoes

 

We were so excited to be apart of our very first Proposal. It was Freezing but totally worth it. The morning started off crazy trying to find the perfect location after our 1st choice failed. Once we found a spot up Big Cottonwood Canyon, we were stopped by the Police for having Stevie Nicks (my Dog) in the Car..oops! So Tyler had to run the pup home and got back just in time for the Big Moment!

Words from the Groom-to-be:

Melanie and I met 8 months ago through my brother and sister in law. It didn’t take long for me to realize she was completely different than any girl I had previously dated and I fell hard and fast. She lives about an hour and a half away, but that doesn’t stop us from seeing each other multiple times a week. When it came to asking Melanie I knew I wanted it to be a complete surprise. I started by secretly asking her parents for their daughters hand in marriage after driving almost 3hrs in a blizzard over dinner where they happily gave me their blessing.

The Plan:

I asked Melanie to Model for an upcoming Nordic Photoshoot. She was so excited - I asked her to see if Matt, her boyfriend, would also like to participate. We reached out to some of our favorite vendors Kenzie Dawn Photography, Kali Chris Hair & Makeup, Ian Saunders Film, The Golden Petal Florals to help with the shoot. At the shoot everything was normal like any Styled Shoot until Matt dropped to one knee and asked Melanie to marry him...She Said Yes!
