Melissa & Jose’s wedding at Dreams Palm Beach
Melissa and Jose met in the summer of 2007 in Milwaukee, WI. while enrolled in a summer business course at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. One day while working on a project in the computer lab, Jose noticed Melissa working on a computer across the lab, and from that moment on he knew he had to find a way to talk to her and get to know her. Jose worked up the courage to approach her and from that moment on they were inseparable. In the spring of 2008, Jose studied abroad for 6 months but distance proved to be no match for their instant connection and bond as they made their relationship official in the summer of 2008. In the years they have been together, they have traveled across the United States side by side creating so many wonderful memories and discovering new places. One very special trip in particular was a surprise trip to Fort Lauderdale, FL!
The proposal: In December of 2013, Jose surprised Melissa with a surprise trip to Fort Lauderdale, FL. around her birthday as he knew this was one of her favorite cities, one that she had visited before on a few occasions and had very, very fond memories of. Friday, January 17th 2014 was a gorgeous sunny day and they spent the day relaxing by the pool, walking up and down the beach and taking in all the beautiful scenery and soaking up the sun. Late in the afternoon, Jose simply told Melissa that he had made dinner reservations for the evening and to simply be ready by 5:00. Come to find out he had made arrangements and had planned a gondola ride at sunset down the beautiful canals of Fort Lauderdale. About half way through the amazing ride, Jose got down on one knee and proposed! Melissa and Jose got married at the Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana resort on June, 20th, 2015 in the Dominican Republic and had the wedding of their dreams! They were both exceptionally pleased with everyone involved in making their big day so very special.
Melissa and Jose advised that they, as well as their guests, were raving/talking for days as to how amazing their wedding and overall experience was. “Everyone’s level of customer service and talent was exceptional and for that we are forever grateful and thankful as our wedding was everything we wanted and envisioned it to be!”
We are very pleased to hear this from them as we had an amazing time shooting their wedding and sharing this very important day with them. Best wished to you from GGGPHOTO Staff. Cheers!
