A Sorella Farms Wedding
Melissa and Lyle were married on June 30th, 2018 at the oh so sweet, rustic, and full of charm, Sorella Farms.
Where oh where do I begin? The emails back and fourth discussing Melissa and Lyle’s love story? Or how about the phone calls as I drove to Lynchburg for orthopedic appointments. What about the first engagement session at Sweet Briar College (you can find that here), a place that’s so meaningful to sweet Melissa. Or you could say it was the second engagement session on Melissa and Lyle’s *favorite* little island in Sanibel, Florida (you can find that here). All throughout this whole process with Melissa and Lyle, I got to get to know them so intimately because of the we got to spent together, and my gracious…their love is so calm, so whole, and so full of genuine peace.
After taking Melissa’s bridal portraits (you can find those here) just a couple weeks before the wedding, I literally was on EDGE waiting for the wedding day itself. I seriously, could not wait. I know Melissa pretty well now, so I knew there wasn’t going to be a shortage of gorgeous wedding details all over the place, and boy, I was right!!! Not to mention, Katie, from A Little Party Events, helped bring everything to the next level. Paired with GORGEOUS florals from Bloom by Doyle’s…y’all…I was drooling!!! SO much pretty and so many meaningful, and purposeful details.
Not once, throughout the whole day was there an anxious energy. It was something I don’t see often, because honestly, most of the time those anxious feelings are totally what you expect! Not with Melissa and Lyle. Just SO ready to be husband and wife. To share their vows, and to walk back down the aisle as husband and wife. It was definitely a feeling I personally won’t forget, because when you get to witness a love like that, it makes you feel so good just SO good.
I love you both SO much, and I am SO happy to see you become one big family! What a blessing it has been to know you’re love!!!
