Nate and Melinda’s day was centered around the two of them, their love for family, and the greatest love for their daughter Ella.
I could write a lot about their day. From Nate’s reaction when Melinda came down the aisle, to the hula hoop artist who did a show stopping performance at their reception. But the moment I wanted to write about the most when I sat down today was their first dance. All first dances are cute, and sweet, and sometimes even, a little funny. But during Melinda and Nate’s first dance I looked over to see their Daughter Ella watching their every move. As Nate and Melinda danced she sat perfectly still. She got to watch them dance, laugh, share a kiss, share looks of joy, and then look back to her with the sweetest smiles. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t shed a tear watching the three of them share such a sweet moment. And I’d be lying more if I said I didn’t almost lose it when after their dance was over, Nate picked up Ella to share a special dance with her. Ella will always know such a true and sweet example of what true love looks like through her parents. And that is such an amazing thing to have in life.
Thank you Melinda and Nate for letting me be a part of your wedding day. The two of you are as good as love gets. <3 – XoXo Grace*
