The Ceremony

Melissa and Brian married on the terrace of The Atrium at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. The couple exchanged vows they’d written themselves beneath a huppah covered in natural-colored dupioni silk and draped with curly willow and moss. “We sat down and discussed what we felt were the important factors in keeping a marriage strong and healthy,” Melissa explains. “We came up with several components that we both vowed to each other, and then we each wrote separate verses dedicated to the other.”
