Melissa and Guy’s wedding in 2006 was a bold and timeless morning affair. The ceremony attended by their family and friends was a joyful and emotional celebration.
Melissa reminisced while celebrating her 15th wedding anniversary and stated, “I feel that 15 years is a small but big accomplishment at the same time. Small because I can’t wait for our 25th, big because we were very young and by the grace of God are still standing.”
To celebrate their marriage milestone, the stunning outdoor anniversary shoot was captured by Reem Photography. It gorgeously showcased Melissa and Guy’s sophisticated and elegant style with their formal black and white attire. The couple, who both own a multimedia company in Florida and Haiti, believe in supporting and uplifting one another in a thriving marriage. “It is important to support each other’s dreams and encourage each other. Don’t lose yourself in each other’s world but instead, create a life together that consists of your desires.
