Smiles and Balloons - Fun Engagement Photos for Melissa and Ryan by Photographer Hilton Pittman


It isn’t often that I get to see engagement photos of the couples I marry unless they are included at the wedding in some way. But I recently received a clever magnetic Save-the-Date card (great idea!) and a link to Melissa and Ryan’s engagement photos at about the same time. When I saw the balloons on the Save-the-Date card I went right away to go see the photos. What a happy set of pictures and the addition of the balloons fits Melissa and Ryan perfectly. Congrats to their photographer, Hilton Pittman, of Hilton Pittman Photography, to think of such a fun addition. I can just imagine the three of them walking around historic downtown Apex with the balloons and all the smiles that must have generated from onlookers.


Melissa and Ryan met by pure serendipity. About three years ago, Melissa was planning to move to another state and was having a going away party. Ryan, who didn’t know Melissa at the time, was asked by friends to go with them to the party and Melissa and Ryan met that night. Melissa never did move after meeting Ryan and their wedding in June of this year is going to be the four year anniversary of their first “official date.”

Such a great story and such a great couple. I am looking forward to their wedding, which will be held at The Sutherland Estate and Gardens in Wake Forest.










With their crazy-busy schedules, they are still managing to find the time to put together a special wedding about their love for each other and their family and friends. I was very touched by the things they wanted to include when we sat down together to create the framework for their ceremony. It’s going to be a wonderful ceremony and celebration and their family and friends are going to love it.

Hilton’s photos are so great and I swear the blue balloons seem to match the color of Melissa’s eyes! If you’d like to go check out Hilton’s blog for yourself, here is a link to his post about the engagement photos. His photos from the wedding are sure to be magical.

Update - Jan 2012 - Melissa and Ryan’s wedding was on a sunny, spectacular day in June 2011 and their DIY decorations were cheery, colorful (I LOVE yellow!) and included endearing touches - not to mention celebrating the long marriages of their parents and grandparents. It was a great day and here is a link to the blog post I wrote about it. 

Their wedding was so special that it was chosen by The Knot North Carolina magazine for a featured article in the their Spring / Summer 2012 edition. Here is a link to the blog post I wrote about their being featured in the magazine. Congratulations to Melissa, Ryan and their photographer, Hilton Pittman.
