Melissa’s best friend from college and Travis’s best friend were both thinking the same thing…”Mel and Travis would be PERFECT for each other!” Â Making that meet up between the two wouldn’t take much “setting up” as they would both be attending the same Memorial Day BBQ. Â It had to have been love at first sight for Travis cuz when Melissa arrived the clouds parted and I’m sure angels were singing (in Travis’s head). Â Not only was her beauty amplified by her slow motion walk toward him, but she was also carrying into the party his favorite beer! Â The Dream girl alarm was sounding and my new ad for a beer commercial is also a true story! Â Later in the evening Melissa and Travis paired up for a beer pong game and we all know that being on the same team, trash talking against the other team, all while drinking beer in a competitive atmosphere are the key ingredients for the start of something magical…The game didn’t have a magical ending as they lost, but in the enchanting game of love, Melissa and Travis are forever winners as they have found true companionship in each other.
Capitola Beach, Ca is a very special place for Melissa and Travis. Â This is where one of the most significant stories Melissa and Travis will ever tell took place. Â This is where he got down on one knee, spilled his heart out to her, proposed…and…She said “YES!” Â Here is a sneak peak into their engagement session and I hope that these pictures do justice what this colorful beach town means to you.
It was so much fun hanging out with Mel and Trav (I can call them that, cuz we are that tight now 🙂 and capturing their love! Â Enjoy!
