When I first met with Melissa & Ryan earlier this summer, they described the vision of their wedding to me as classy yet casual. They wanted to keep it simple and relaxed, making the day a celebration with friends and family where they weren’t the focus.

Melissa is good friends with Lisa from We Connect, and they swapped wedding planner duties at each other’s weddings this summer. Between the two of them they did an awesome job and the wedding turned out exactly how they wanted. Casual portraits first, canoeing down the Elk River to their ceremony, a fantastic reception catered Yama-To-Go (think amazing Yamagoya sushi, but catered to the event via a mobile kitchen!), and what sounds like one heck of a party under the stars with their friends & family!

Thank you both for including me in your day!
