There is something incredibly exciting and nerve wracking about planning the wedding for your best friend. Luckily enough for me, when that person is as laid back and low key as Mel is, you really get free reign to pull her vision together - no questions asked.
Mel and Pat cared about three things on their wedding day - time spent with each other, sharing it with close family and friends and in a beautiful outdoor setting. Both of them lead insanely busy lives and wedding planning wasn’t at the top of their to do list! When they got engaged Mel made it clear that she didn’t want a big production - simplicity ruled the day.
From the loose timeline to the classic greenery and silver dresses - every element complemented the bride and groom. Their natural beauty and style shone through at the Eagle Waters Lodge in Eagle River, WI , where all their guests were treated to a Northwood’s getaway. They had friends from all over the continent come and share the weekend with them. It was a true testament to their love.
Congrats you hooligans! We love you!
