On August 24, 2019, my eldest daughter, Melody, had her wedding day. She married my handsome, generous and caring son-in-law Jamie.
Although Melody and Jamie were officially married at the court house, three years ago, this event was their “real” wedding day. Back when they married at the court house, Melody was a broke law school student and the couple simply couldn’t afford a wedding.
Melody is a born organizer and had everything ready for this day. And a beautiful day it was. The wedding truly reflected the couple’s personalities. They did “their own thing” which made it for a very relaxing atmosphere. Everyone had a great time and we only saw tears of happiness.
The Bride & Dress
Melody found her dream dress and veil at USA Bridal in Nashville, when she visited during Christmas. The dress was beautiful. The girl was an absolute stunner of a bride.
The Groom & Groomsmen
The groom and groomsmen looked dashing in their grey suits.
A Fair Barn is an all inclusive event venue, located in Salem, Illinois. The grounds are beautiful and spacious.
This day has left me with so many memories to cherish for the rest of my life. I’m so proud of Melody and Jamie for organizing this entire day and more. They brought everyone together. Friends and family traveled from California, Tennessee, Illinois, New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Missouri and The United Kingdom. So much love was felt from everyone.
I feel incredibly grateful and blessed to have Melody and Jamie in my life. Both are kindhearted, loving and hardworking.
Melody and Jamie, thank you for letting me celebrate with you. I know the two of you will live happily ever after.
