Melissa + Chad | Pecan Springs Ranch Wedding

“And that’s why birds do it,
Bees do it,
Even educated fleas do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love……”

These two brilliant New Yorkers had a killer Pecan Springs Ranch wedding last month!

Melissa and Chad met on OK Cupid (like many of my couples!) and it was a terrific match from the get go!

Their wedding was officiated by Chad’s cousin, Joe, and was so unbelievably tender and mindful.

Like every weekend this year, it rained cats and dogs but we were still able to have a bit of portraits and the ceremony outside!

The incredible first dance was to “Let’s Do it” and it did not disappoint.

I’ve been a sappy one this year but Chad’s first dance with his mom to “The Rainbow Connection” had me full on bawling.

The Kermit that joined them surely enjoyed it as well.

Melissa and Chad were amazing to be around and the day was simply magic! Much, much love!

Incredible peeps involved with this day include the following!

Venue : Pecan Springs Ranch

Coordinator/Planner : Stephanie – Your Wedding, Your Way

Catering : Royal Fig

Florist & Decor : Stems

Band : L Musik

Cakes & Desserts : Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop
