Melissa and Jon exchanged vows on June 3, 2017 at the Macedonia Christian Church and then celebrated their union with a ginormous reception at the Moratoc Park in Williamston, North Carolina. Not only is this couple exceptionally good-looking, they also have chemistry. All the bride-groom portrait turned out spectacular (in my opinion) because of the singular fact that they are smitten with each other. Despite having met them this year, I could feel it in my bones that they are genuinely good people who will devote their lives to each other.
Here's my favorite fun fact about them: They actually met at Kelly's, an infamous bar on the Outer Banks that tends to encourage a lot of dancing. So it is only fitting that Jon and Melissa are the most amorous dancers I've ever captured at a wedding. They would meet foreheads, they would twirl, they would laugh, they would make funny faces at each other, and through all of this, the wedding guests would notice and adore them.
Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Jon Lilley for being a wonderful testament to God's love and for trusting me to capture every single moment of your special day.
