How They Met:
Marissa and Jeffrey met in 2010 on a film set. Jeffrey was in town visiting a friend and decided to be an extra for the day so he could hang around set. Marissa was the leading female so she felt the need to introduce herself to him. He had a super confident vibe, very attractive, and she remembers vividly thinking to herself that he was a good person, so she decided to make sure he knew she didn’t care about him and she tells us she was pretty rude. Ha!
Fast forward three years later when Marissa moved to Phoenix to work on another film set. Jeffrey and herself quickly became friends and after he ended a previous relationship things between the two of them started progressing to more than just friends!
Jeffrey invited their two families to stay in a lake house in Maine for Marissa’s final time on The Appalachian Trail. (Yes, she took a year off to hike the Appalachian Trail! She is too cool!) Marissa and Jeffrey hiked Mt. Katahdin together and spent the next day recovering from the 13 hour hike that was pure torture for everyone Marissa says. It rained all day but she later learned Jeffrey had hoped to go up in a float plane.
The following day they had breakfast with their families and then Jeffrey asked Marissa to take a walk by the lake. After he asked her, he needed assistance standing up because he was so sore from the hike. Their families were able to watch from the lake house as Jeffrey asked her to be his wife!
You can imagine as Marissa being a wedding videographer, she has seen and filmed many weddings. So planning her special day was something she wanted to make unique to her. With the help from Taylor with Meant 2 Be Events Marissa and Jeffrey had the perfect Rustic, Western, Boho wedding.
Marissa looked absolutely stunning in her fitted gown while Jeffrey rocked a kilt! Their first look was too sweet for words as Marissa spun around to show off her dress, while Jeffrey couldn’t help but smile.
The two said “I do” in front of the perfect backdrop and had an epic couples session with Rachael Koscica Photography. The mix of dried floral and live blush roses was the perfect combination for their floral design throughout their wedding. Their tablescape was one of our all time favorites from the glasses, to the mixed chairs, table runners, and plates. We just couldn’t get enough!
It was the perfect day for the perfect couple and we are so lucky to have been able to capture their rad day! We love you two!
