Melissa & Lachlan
Annadel Estate Winery Wedding

Melissa met Lachlan while out one night with her sister in San Francisco.

The two sat by the window of the bar watching people pass by and chatting when they heard an interesting accent coming from a group of gentlemen inside the bar. They quickly deciphered the accent and Melissa’s sister approached the group to have a little fun practicing her Australian accent. Melissa tagged along not realizing she was about to be introduced to her future husband. Though Melissa and her sister actually approached Lachlan and his friends first, he likes to hold claim to spotting Melissa through the window of the bar before ever walking inside.

But the magic of their love story lies in the timing. Knowing he only had one more day before returning to Australia, Lachlan asked Melissa for her number and confirmed a date for the following day. One date. And they found themselves in a long distance romance.

Lachlan and Melissa were married at the beautiful Annadel Estate Winery. They were joined by their families for a very intimate, emotional and sweet ceremony. It could not have been more perfect! Every detail included and every person in attendance held significance and meaning in their lives. It was truly a special day in every way.

Lach and Melissa, thank you so much for inviting us to play such a special part at your wedding as your photographers.
