The Oaks Waterfront Microwedding: Melanie + AJ

Melanie and AJ’s The Oaks Watefront microwedding was a beautiful start to their married life. Like most 2020 couples, these two decided to make lemonade out of lemons by getting married now and celebrating later. Their September wedding was greeted with the most unpredictable weather with rain showers on and off throughout the day. Lucky for us, it cleared up just a bit for some beautiful portraits outside. Be sure to check back for the full blog feature.

Congratulations Melanie + AJ!
