Shoreby Club Wedding – Melissa + Ryan

We were honored to photograph Fox 8 Meteorologist Melissa Mack's wedding this past weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect for the late afternoon ceremony at the Shoreby Club where Melissa and Ryan said their "I Do's." The couple poured colored colored water into crystal decanters with pink representing Melissa and blue representing Ryan. When you pour the two together, it's a royal purple which is the meaning of 'two become one'. This color can never return to its initial separate colors of pink and blue. After the ceremony, friends and family watched the cake cutting then headed in to the tent for dinner and dancing. Melissa and Ryan danced to Elton John's "The One." While guests were dining, Melissa and Ryan snuck out for a few gorgeous Lake Erie sunset shots and then returned to dance the night away. On their one year anniversary they will honeymoon on Turks and Caicos at the same resort where Ryan popped the question! Congratulations Melissa and Ryan!!!
