Montgomery, IL VFW Wedding: Melissa & Noel

When Melissa & Noel told me about their Wizard of Oz wedding plans, I was incredibly excited. You could say I was a bit skeptical they could pull it off, yet remained cautiously optimistic. Well, it was waaaaaaay better than I imagined. The flying monkey flower girls were my favorite! No wait, it was the ruby red shoes. No, it was the yellow brick road aisle runner. Can't decide, it was all magical!

They chose VFW in Montgomery for it all to happen. The ceremony was outdoors on a beautiful April day. We then stayed out for some family photos and some with their wedding party. During the dancing, Melissa's stepdad surprised her by wearing a shirt with her dad's face on it... not a dry eye in the house. Towards the end of the night, we stepped out for a couple of colorful photos of just the two of them. What a day, congratulations you two!
