Melissa and Anthony met in high school, she was a freshman and he was a junior. After Anthony graduated, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was away training in California and Oklahoma. But no worries, they wrote tons of letters and sent packages... everyday! After he finished his training, and chose the reservist side of the Marines, Anthony started going to school. But After Melissa graduated high school, she decided to go to the Citadel - 700 miles away from home.. and Anthony! This past Christmas, when Melissa came home to visit, Anthony had a ton of boxes wrapped up - one inside the other. As Melissa opened each box, a smaller one appeared, and when she got to the smallest box, there was a beautiful ring inside and Anthony asked her to marry him! Of course the answer was Yes!
Melissa just graduated from the Citadel last week, and has returned home! yay! She will become an officer in the Army National Guest and hopes to start her career in Psychology after her training of the Guard is over in November. Melissa and Anthony will be getting married at the beautiful Morris Arboretum next June right after Anthony returns from his deployment in Japan!
I was so excited to capture these two lovebirds at Bartram's Gardens in Philadelphia! There was a little bit of construction going on, but of course we made it work! Enjoy their sneak peek! xo
There was an awesome view of the city!
I love this!
I love sun flare <3 its my favorite!
I loved all the tall grass! It doesn't compare to California, but its as close as i'll get in the area!
I definitely found a tick on me when I got home.. it probably crawled on me when i laid down here to take this picture!
Cant wait for their wedding next June!!!!
