While enjoying the company of her friends,  Melissa was introduced to one of their bosses, Matt, a rugged rancher and powerline construction company owner. The two hit it off immediately.

Melissa didn’t see it coming when Matt decided to ask her to be his wife. Still in athletic attire from her workout, Melissa, at the request of Matt, went out to help him feed the cows. There she was, in the middle of a field, surrounded by cows in a circle of feed.  Matt got down on one knee. His two-year-old daughter, Mattie, held out the ring, and Matt asked, “Will you marry us?” Obviously, the answer was, “YES!” Melissa and Matt went out for a celebratory dinner and eagerly started planning their next chapter together.

Their planning paid off, and their wedding day was one for the record books!

At St. Mary’s Cathedral, nestled among wide skies and hazy mountains, Matt and Melissa prepared to say their “I do’s” in front of a sea of loving friends and family. The cathedral doors opened and revealed Melissa, a radiant vision in white…. Just wait till you see her gorgeous and timeless dress!! 😍

Matt and Melissa exchanged heartfelt vows, and the beginning of their forever was sealed with a kiss. 

To the delight of everyone (especially Mattie!), Melissa and Matt were finally husband and wife. They headed over to the barn on their family ranch to keep the party going, where they laughed, loved, and danced their boots off. It was a celebration I’ll never forget!

Melissa & Matt, 

Thank you for letting us document your incredible wedding day!  Your thoughtful planning and preparations paid off, you truly displayed your love for each other and your family and friends for the world to see.  Together you two are making the world a better place and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you both.  Love & appreciation, ~M
