Q. How did you two meet?

A. We were both single and were not looking for a relationship at all! One Saturday night I went out with a few of my friends. And apparently he did too. The moment I set eyes on Rudy, I thought to myself “I HAVE to have him!” haha. I didn’t even know him and something about Rudy drew me to him. Well as the night went on I would catch him starring at me and he would catch me as well. Finally, I approached him (I was impatient ha) and started talking to him. We eventually made it to the dance floor and danced ALL night long! Since that night we have been inseparable!

Q. How did he/she ask you out for your first date?

A. He asked me if I wanted to meet his grandparents! (i know…I was thinking “ummm thats kinda soon” But I went with it…… He tells me now that he knew I was the one that’s why he brought me to meet his grandparents so soon.

 

Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!

A. We went on a vacation with his family to the Florida keys. The second night we stayed there, some of us went to eat dinner. When we came back to our condo the rest of the family were out by the pool. So Rudy and I went to change into our swimsuits. We came down by the pool and Rudy says to me “lets go by that spot you like and lay on the hammock because my stomach hurts” (he kept complaining he ate too much). We then went down by the ocean with two palm trees holding the hammock. I get on it and I said, “come on, get in”. We had brought a bottle of wine…mainly for me because he doesn’t drink wine. While he was standing over me he takes a huge gulp of wine! I was thinking, “oh goodness! That’s odd!” He got in the hammock with me. He wasn’t being himself. He was nervous and stuttering. He kept asking me, “Do you love me?” I was starting to get concerned! At one point, I thought he was about to break up with me! He then gets out of the hammock, I asked him if he was ok. He gets down on one knee and says, “I love you with all my heart, will you marry me?” The first thing that cam out of my mouth was “SHUT UP!” (i know..not the best first response…but I was so shocked!) After that horrible response I said “YES!! A million times yes!!!” It was perfect!

Q. Do you have a special song together?

A. When you got a good thing – by Lady Antebellum

How Adam proposed: 

 We were going to La Pavillon for lunch with both of our parents. He was going to take a half a day off of work and meet us there. He got dressed and kissed me good bye. I fell back asleep, he woke me with fresh coffee and told me he had a surprise for me. He told me he took the whole day off. He handed me the coffee to drink, after a few sips he took the cup from me. He told me he had another surprise, got down on one knee and proposed. It was special and sweet.

Melissa and Marco’s Southern Wedding at Melady House

Melissa and Marco traveled from Dallas to get married in Melissa’s hometown of Alexandria, LA at one of Central Louisiana’s premiere wedding venues, The Melady House. 

Their wedding was certainly unique and filled with their personalities.  From fun yard games (bean bag toss and lasso golf) to a pizza bar!  I loved working with these two, and it’s always an honor to document a wedding for a fellow photographer.  Check out Marco’s work at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Marco-Molina-Photography .

How did he propose? 

Marco took Melissa to a park in Fort Worth under the premise of taking some summer pictures. He arranged for a photographer friend to meet us. As we were posing for shots, Marco asked if there were ants in the grass behind them. With Melissa’s back turned (looking for the ants) Marco got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring, that he had purchased for her in London (one of Melissa’s most favorite places). The moment was a happy, teary blur. Although we don’t really remember what all was said, the answer was yes!

How did you two meet? 

We met through a mutual friend October 2009 in Dallas, TX. Marco was dressed like Michael Jackson, sequin socks and all, for a Halloween art show. Melissa was misinformed about wearing costumes to the art show, but was wearing a pretty feather headband. There was immediate interest for us both, but a slight issue of an 13 hour geographic separation. Melissa lived in Baton Rouge, LA and Marco was in Midland, TX. Over the next year, we were great pen pals, chatting on facebook and texting. Flirting really. 

What do you enjoy doing together? 

We enjoy concerts. Traveling. Trying new restaurants. movies. Rangers baseball games. and most recently, riding bikes together.

Do you have a special song together? 

You are the best thing – Ray LaMontagne (click to listen)

What is your favorite restaurant?

BJs Pizza in Pineville

Tell us about your careers.

Melissa is a Nuclear Medicine Technologist who works in a cardiologist office. Marco is going back to school to earn his degree in math. He is a photographer and also does merchandise for a band.   (Bowling for Soup!)
