Ryan and Melissa-Central Florida Wedding Photographer-Karrah Flores Photography

There’s something special about these two. They have been together for over a decade, since they were kids. Ryan and Melissa grew up together and their friendship developed into a love that no one can deny.

On the day they chose to take the next step in their lives, all the stars aligned and day was as perfect as anyone could ask for. It was a beautifully cool March day in Central Florida….a soft breeze blew as the sun shined down on the St. John’s River. Melissa spent the morning being pampered while her family surrounded her, showering her with love. Ryan was among his friends and family, enjoying conversation and laughter.

Then it was time for Ryan to see his bride as he took his place at the altar. She came into sight, her parents on her arms and a smile on her face as they saw each other for the first time. Ryan’s face lit up and everyone could see there was no denying their love for each other.

Through happy tears and smiles, they spoke their vows to each other and then they were declared man and wife. It was a beautiful moment and such an honor that I not only got to experience it first hand, but also was chosen to create these images that will forever be a part of the history of Mr. and Mrs. Ryan and Melissa Flesch.

Congratulations Melissa and Ryan. I’m so happy you two have found your happily ever after!
