MEANINGFUL LYRICS: The lyrics of James Blunt’s 'Bonfire Heart' had special significance for Melissa and Daniel and was their choice for the bride’s entrance song. “People like us — we don’t need that much, just some. The lyrics rang so very true to us,” Melissa said.
TIMELY PAUSE: The marriage celebrant advised the bride to pause part way down the aisle and take in the scene. “I’m so glad Dad remembered just before we got to our guests because it’s that moment now I’m so thankful for,” Melissa said.
DREAM STYLING: “We have watched family and friends get married and after 10 years of being together it was finally our turn. Daniel is Italian but we didn’t do the traditional Italian wedding most expected,” Melissa said. “We wanted a soft, intimate garden wedding. I had some Pinterest ideas and Pelle’s Events was able to make our dream ceremony and reception come to life.”
