Melissa and TJ have been dating since their high school days – they even won cutest couple their senior year! On the morning of the wedding, everyone got ready at the Doubletree in Cranberry, formerly the Sheraton. This hotel is huge. The atrium is beautiful. If you are having your wedding or prep here, we recommend that you ask for a room on the outside of the hotel facing the street. This will provide the best light and keep guests from seeing you putting your dress on.
One of my favorite moments of the day was when TJ presented Melissa with a pile of notes he had saved from their high school dating days.
After church we made sure to stop at a memorial bench for TJ’s late mother. Then it was off to some unique photo spots in the Wexford area, including a barn and a tree lined path in Pine Park. Normally as a photographer we don’t love gazebos, but the sun was just right for this photo of Melissa and TJ from a distance and they were so kind enough to indulge me for the shot!
Their reception featured custom koozies and drink coasters. The uplighting looked great with their decor.
Note to the couple:
Melissa and TJ, congratulations again! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
