Melissa and Lucky currently reside in Dallas, but she’s a Maine girl, having grown up in Cape Elizabeth. When I asked how they met, Melissa told me that they met in the college dorms freshman year when she insisted on checking Lucky’s driver’s license to make sure that was really his name. Nine years later, they got engaged and started wedding planning. Melissa knew that she wanted to give their guests the full Maine experience — a sunset rehearsal cruise around Casco Bay followed by a party in downtown Portland, plenty of Maine beer and lobster (we were so spoiled with lobster two days in a row!), and an epic wedding day celebration on Peaks Island.
I can’t say enough about how amazing these two were to spend time with. They both had the biggest smiles on their faces the entire weekend, and Melissa’s laugh was infectious. My cheeks actually hurt from smiling so much during the editing process. You’ll see what I mean below.
