Stuart & Andy Melville (Kelly Ridge Country Club Wedding)
When I first met Stuart and Andy back in December at the Hotel Diamond here in Chico, we bonded over our love of food and dislikes of over-photoshopped images, bleh. We chatted about the proposal, which is a cute little story of a nervous Stuart taking Andy to Spice Creek Cafe….After pulling out a pewter crown, Stuart said ‘you know how you have said you had to kiss a lot of frogs? Well, you don’t have to anymore.’ Andy of course thought that was adorable, but when she looked under the crown in the box was-you guessed it, there was the ring.
Stuart and Andy are such happy people and light just shines from the both of them and their family and friends as well. Andy & Stuart it was an honor and a privilege to be your photographer. I wish you a lifetime of happiness, although it seems you already have that 🙂
Thank you to Elizabeth and Michelle for capturing this adorable moment just before Andy and Stuart ‘First Look.’ Elizabeth’s shot is on the left and Michelle’s is the right. First Look? What’s that you say? A first look is when a couple opt to see each other before the ceremony. I love it because it creates this intimate moment, away from any stress…for the bride and groom to just focus on each other.
Stuart and Andy were married Saturday May 22nd at the Kelly Ridge Country Club in Oroville, Ca.
