Getting Ready

As the AlesiaKim and Co. team made their entrance, a palpable sense of excitement filled the air. Melissa was meticulously preparing herself, while Donald relished the time spent with his family. The sun shone brightly, casting a warm glow over the day.

Interested in having us capture or orchestrate your perfect day?


From the very outset, Melissa and Donald had set their hearts on an indoor ceremony, envisioning Melissa's majestic entrance on the grand marble-like staircase of The Oaks. This moment, where they exchanged their vows, stood as the pinnacle of their day. Surrounded by friends and family, they came together to share in this cherished occasion. Donald and Melissa declared their love and commitment, before joyfully descending the aisle to celebrate with their nearest and dearest. Following the ceremony, we seized the opportunity to capture some nighttime portraits outdoors.
