I was so excited to photograph this wedding for Tim and Melissa. I have taken Melissa's pictures before; a couple years ago she entered my Nevada's Next Top Model contest and really blew me away with her rocker girl photos.
Melissa describes her and Tim as a laid back rocker couple who like to ride their motorcycle and go exploring. They wanted to stay somewhat traditional and add their rocker vibe with black bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen tuxes, with red roses and white accents.
Capturing photos that reflect the couple's personalities and the mood of the day is always what's important to me. In a way this gallery is different from the others because of the unique theme that Melissa and Tim went for.
Melissa's father, who passed away recently, was remembered at the wedding by placing his pins and badge onto the inner layers of Melissa's dress. In a way, he was with her, as she walked down the aisle.
Melissa's brother got to escort her down the aisle. His most important task was to remember to respond to "Who gives this bride away?" with "Our mother and I" and after rehearsal, nobody was sure he would remember! But he did say it without any trouble at the ceremony.
Try not to cry at a wedding where the groom just can't stop himself. I don't know how Melissa held her composure, but I'd say Tim is a lucky man to have such a strong woman by his side.
