Intimate Summer Wedding Ceremony

Then it was time for their ceremony… At this point I have to give a huge shout out to the incredible Melanie Murphy of By Invitation Only Event Planning and Design. She worked with this couple hand-in-hand as they made the decision to cut down their guest list, change the details of their ceremony, and switch up their entire reception plan. With Melanie’s help, everything went absolutely flawlessly! If you’re looking for a wedding planner who is ready to handle absolutely anything, Melanie and her team at BIO are the team you are looking for!
