Melisa & Aris Tie the Knot


Birds of a feather flock together and this couldn't be more true for Melissa and Aris. These two love birds met online during the pandemic and soon became inseparable. Once engaged, Melissa was determined to show Aris what a true American Wedding was like. Being from another country, Aris also had his own traditions and it was truly beautiful to see both countries incorporated in the Wedding Festivities. Dogwood Canyon was a wonderful host as always and you would never know from these photos that we were shooting in hot summer temps. We began with a first look at the couple's vacation rental property and soon after got picked up by an amazing limo service (Branson Limousine Executive Charter) that whisked us all off to Dogwood Canyon. Once at Dogwood, we made several stops at ALL of the waterfalls (because why not?) and even took some stunning images behind one of the waterfalls. Then we made our way to Hope Wilderness Chapel for the Wedding Ceremony. It melted my heart to hear Melissa's nephew pronounce the two husband and wife in Aris' native language. The ceremony was simple and extremely touching. Wedding Bells were rung and we headed back to the limo and out to the gorgeous overlook at Top of the Rock for some scenic pictures and a big champagne pop. This is around the time we pulled out the purple umbrellas and decided to play around and get a little silly! I can't even describe how how fun these two are and how they love to laugh together. It would make anyone smile. Last but not least, we rounded off the day with dinner, toasts and cake cutting at the beautiful Chateau on the Lake. Who could ask for a better day? Melissa had everything planned perfectly and it was absolutely stunning in every way! Venue: Dogwood Canyon
