So this wedding was a non-stop party – hence the title smile emoticon You might recognize the groom. He’s only the starting QB of the Detroit Lions . Kelly and Matt have an awesome love story and they are two of the most genuine and down to earth people we’ve ever worked with. The best part… they are so utterly in love and their wedding was an incredible celebration to honor that! More from the bride:

“Matthew and I met while he was in the middle of two-a-days for football and I was a new freshman there for two-a-days for cheerleading at the university of georgia. We went with a group to a movie and afterwards all decided to head back to the athletic dorms to hang out. Matthew and I stayed up talking that entire night. He was intelligent which is what drew me towards him. He had so much going for him, but yet was shy and humble which I believe is what drew me even closer. We remained friends for some time and then decided to commit to a real relationship. We spent the rest of his college career falling in love with each other. He moved to Michigan and we did long distance for a year and a half which was a huge test for us. He then asked me to move in with him up in Michigan. It was a huge step, leaving everything I knew and loved behind, but I felt like my heart was telling me he was worth it. I have never looked back. We have lived together for four years now and i feel like i know everything about this man and I fall deeper in love with him every day. I don’t go a day without him making me laugh”

 

This wedding was a dream.  The main message of their film is LOVE. Melissa & Bob are meant to be together and we were so honored to be part of their gorgeous wedding.  I’ve known Melissa & her family for years… ever since we filmed her sister’s wedding a few years ago and then we were able to reconnect at Meredith’s wedding back in December.  I was soooo excited when they chose Pelican Hill for their wedding – a destination wedding for these New Yorkers – and even MORE excited that they opted for an outdoor dinner.  I mean… seriously gorgeous.   White lilac basically knocked it out of the park.  I love when clients become friends and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two.  XOXO Melissa & Bob!!

If you’ve been following our work for awhile, you know that Los Cabos, Mexico is a very very special place to us.  Not only is it one of our favorite vacation spots, but it’s one of the most stunning locations for destination weddings.  Most of all, we feel at home there.  We have very close friends who are near and dear to us, and the people of Los Cabos are friendly and welcoming.

It was very important to us to share this particular highlights as soon as possible so you all can see just how special this place is. Kate and Ron held their incredible four day destination wedding at Cabo Surf Hotel… about one month before Hurricane Odile.  Right now Los Cabos is working hard to get back to normal.  Everyone I’ve talked to is working their tail off not because they have to, but because they WANT TO.  They love their city, neighborhood, etc. and they would never leave (even though they could!)  The resorts are slowly getting back to running again (some have already re-opened with the rest re-opening in the next couple of months) so I am confident that Cabo will be EVEN BETTER in future visits. I cannot wait to go back!!

If you would like to help the recovery effort, please take some time to follow the links to these options that are hand-picked by our friends there.  Your donations will go DIRECTLY to the people in need!
