Melissa and Cullen really lucked out with the timing – the leaves changed early this year and their color choices perfectly matched Southpointe Golf Club – the ladies wore a terracotta/rust color.

Melissa and Cullen did a non-traditional wedding party with a man of honor and two groomsladies, we love to see it. It was an absolutely beautiful and sunshine-y day – but the wind up on the green at Southpointe can sometimes be strong!

But that’s okay, because they had an indoor ceremony planned with a room flip into the reception.

Cullen had a unique groomsman gift – it was a bottle opener with his face sculpted into it. I also took one of my favorite photos ever of a bouquet catch. I really liked the ceremony – there were lots of personal details and there was laughter and happy tears. Melissa’s father also gave a lovely toast (he might have mentioned marital relations which had the bride and groom laughing!) Everyone was up on the dance floor later in the night!

At the end of the night, Southpointe did their tradition of a sparkler send off! Melissa and Cullen are incredibly gracious and kind people – and very accomplished too. It was such an honor to be there on their first day of marriage.

Note to the couple:
­Melissa and Cullen, it was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
