Melanie and Bryan met in college and connected through their mutual love for literature, history and travel. These shared interests took them around the world together on many different adventures. On Melanie's birthday, she received the surprise of her life when presented with a ring! It was completely unexpected and brought happy tears to her eyes. The couple celebrated their engagement a year later with a portrait session in the city of love, Paris.
When it came time to start the wedding planning, they knew that Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings would be able to make all their wishes come true. A previous trip to Hawai'i had left them itching to return to the islands, so a wedding at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
seemed like it was simply meant to be. They exchanged their vows at Halawai Lawn
and enjoyed an intimate reception at Kaiona Ballroom
. Melanie expressed, "Our wedding was more magical and beautiful than words can describe."
