I’m excited to introduce Melissa, our fifteenth xoBeautiful project reveal. Melissa was photographed at a Victorian style Central Wisconsin Wedding photographers dream venues: The Galloway House in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.


Melissa’s Story:

I’m excited for this photo shoot because I’m a 34-year-old first time bride and am looking forward to feeling like a princess again for one day. I am very thankful for this wonderful opportunity! I applied for this photo shoot because it sounded fun, and my wedding day was the happiest day of my life!! I wanted to feel like a bride all over again!!


As you may remember from my first post, I mentioned that I had loved ones fill out a fun survey about each lady. Melissa’s husband filled this one out for her.

Describe her in 4 words or less: Beautiful inside and out

Why do you feel she needs this day to feel beautiful and be a model for the day? Because she looked amazing on our wedding day and she was to busy to really realize how amazing she really looked!

What makes her special? She has a caring and loving personality and makes me happy every day. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.

Does she have any nicknames? Baby Girl and Sweet Cheeks

Describe a funny memory or moment about her. We were fishing and after the first fish she caught she finally held one. Now if I could only get her to bait her own hook!

If she could spend a day with any band/musical artist who would it be and why? New kids on the block because apparently they’re hot.


And of course, I wanted to hear all the fun details from her wedding and engagement!

My husband Chris surprised me by asking if I would marry him on Father’s Day (June 15, 2014), while out to eat with my mom and dad at Rene’s Supper Club in Crivitz, WI. It was a day I will never forget. The whole dining room started to clap for us, and we were all in tears.  Thankfully, I am a school teacher and had the summer off because we got married on November 15, 2014, which is 5 months to the date of our engagement. We got married at St.Augustine Catholic Church in Wausaukee, WI. Our reception was at the Island Resort and Casino in Harris, MI. It was my dream wedding!
