Melissa and Sal met under humble circumstances. Melissa was hired at Sal's family business and that's where sparks flew for the first time.
For their big day, Melissa and Sal decided to host a grand celebration for over 500 of their friends and family members. Their fall wedding was an elegant celebration featuring a colour palette of purple and pink.
The couple opted for a traditional church ceremony followed by a grand exit in a lovely horse-drawn carriage. Equine elements were echoed at the couple's reception with two stunning ice sculptures. Blossoming branches topped the tables at Melissa and Sal's reception while pink blooms added an air of romance to the venue.
"From seeing each other for the first time down the aisle and the enchanting horse and carriage ride to cutting the cake and our all night dance party -- in the blink of an eye, before we knew it, our beautiful, romantic, fairytale day had come to an end," says Melissa of her whirlwind wedding day.
