Melissa, a seasoned commercial insurance underwriter, and Joseph, a dedicated firefighter of 19 years, have shared their lives together for over a decade. As proud uncle and aunt to their nieces and nephews, family is at the heart of their lives. Their commitment to spending quality time together is evident in their Sunday family dinners and their love for traveling to sunny destinations.

Dressed to the nines, Melissa and Joseph looked absolutely incredible! The white floral arrangements added a touch of elegance to the day, making every detail picture-perfect. After the ceremony, the couple took a moment to capture some breathtaking ocean photographs by the rocks, showcasing their deep love and connection. We love the contrast between their grace and elegance with the weathered ocean rocks! Melissa looked exquisite in a lace mermaid-style gown next to her handsome new husband, Joseph…
