Matthew and Melissa met while they were students at Auburn, and despite living out of state, knew it was the place for them to get married. I first met them last year when I photographed Matthew’s sweet surprise proposal to Melissa in front of Samford Hall. It has been so great getting to know them over the past year – they’re both such kind people! It was beautiful to hear their friends and family speak about them at their reception. They’re very loved, and they show love to everyone around them – they’re a perfect fit!
