Mila - Melissa, wow what an amazing wedding and beautiful blog post! Congrats!!! I'm so happy for you, I always wondered if you were married. You've given me hope and showed me to still believe in God, He has a plan for all of us. My relationship of almost 12 years ended last year, we never got married (I was waiting 12 years for the proposal!) so now I'm still single, not married at 35. You're amazing story is so inspiring! Congrats on your new husband and your baby on the way!!! Cheers from South Africa!
Autumn - Melissa, Congratulations!!!! What a beautiful story you have. Maybe there is hope for me yet, I will be 40 this year, have always been single, have never been married.
Des Maerz - I used to read your blog all the time and I knew that you wanted to find your soul mate. I haven't read your blog in a long while, and I'm so happy for you! And now you can come up along side other Christian women and encourage them with, "The good ones are worth waiting for!"
Samantha - Beautiful. Congrats!
Trina - I am SO happy for you two! I am glad you have found a man who will love and care for you!! God is good. Faith in God definitely includes faith in His timing. Thank you for years of inspiration - being part your first Zero to 60 workshop in Ireland will always hold a very special place in my heart - it literally was a dream come true for me! Hugs and happiness to you and Bruce! May the joy you felt on this day be just the start of a lifetime of happiness together!
Amelia Renee - Oh Melissa! This is so beautiful. Just about cried reading those vows...WOW. And what a true gift of God to not only start a marriage, but see the Lord answer even the detail prayers (like weather!). Celebrating with you, sweet sister!

April Brancaccio - I, too, married at the age of 40, so your story definitely resonated with me. Such an incredibly beautiful wedding, and the images are just gorgeous! The floral bouquets are stunning! Everything is so lovely! Congratulations!!
Suzanne Searle - Congratulations, Melissa and Bruce, and may you have a blessed happy ever after! I love these photos - my sister lives in Granby and we spend a week every summer there. I've seen the setup for weddings at the top of the mountain in GR (while hiking) and it is amazing!! Amazing weather... we had the same dilemma with our outdoor reception, and because I'm very type A I added the tents the day before for thousands, and it DID in fact rain. Stormed in fact. In Phx, in April. I'm so glad yours turned out so beautifully!
Courtney Jones - Oh my word. The words in those vows he spoke to you had me crying. Is Bruce a writer?? If not, he should be. Lol. In all seriousness, I know I’m ‘just a blog reader’ and Facebook “friend” but I have been a follower of your journey for the last 10 years, (the parts you’ve been willing to share) and I am SO happy to see the way God has worked in life. You deserve everything and more. Congratulations Melissa!

On a side note, as a 35 year old wedding photographer that has been doing this professionally since I was 17 and very SINGLE.... this makes my heart burst. Massive congrats to you and your families!
