From the photographer:: Melissa & Jaquion met in 2013. Jaquion had just moved from Syracuse and moved to hoboken to take a job where Melissa was working. Melissa, a “Jersey Girl”, born, raised remembers when Jaquion first stopped by her cubicle and introduced himself with a bright, warm and charming smile. Melissa was immediately intrigued! Over the span of a year they became friends and would routinely take a 3:45pm coffee break together at the café located in the office building. In these moments they got to know each other…one cup of coffee at a time. After playing coy for several months to his advances the two finally got together! They enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix, and TV shows like: This is Us, New Amsterdam, and Below Deck. They love Taco Tuesdays, making homemade pizzas on Friday nights, watching Syracuse University Basketball and Football, and cheering on the NY Giants. Melissa and Jaquion love to joke with one another and act silly. They try to travel annually to a new place we haven’t been to before. So far They have been to Jamaica, Cuba, and New Orleans. They are total foodies and have a great appreciation for different cultures. Since meeting, their lives have been filled with laughter, adventure, but most of all love! These moments have been made sweeter experiencing them with one another and they look forward to where this journey will take them together!
Melissa and Jaquion both agreed and decided that the most important part of a wedding is the ceremony, so they opted to have an intimate micro-wedding and invited only their closest friends and family. Their wedding was held at one of the most beautiful venues for elopements in PA, Promise Ridge.
