Brengman Brothers, MI Wedding | Melissa + Jeremy


“Love all around. So much happiness.” These are perfect words to describe Melissa and Jeremy’s wedding day.

Choosing a getaway wedding weekend in Traverse City was an easy decision for couple. “We love getting away from our work lives in Metro Detroit and Traverse City is one of our favorite places to do just that. The nature, food and wine can’t be beat. Jeremy’s office designed the winery so it was a perfect fit for a location to celebrate our wedding.”

Both awoke early on that Saturday. Melissa spent some time resting but found herself too excited to stay in bed – “…kind of like Christmas morning! I went for a run to get some nervous energy out and to reflect on the past and the day ahead. I felt calm and confident in spending the rest of my life with Jeremy. I was ready to get going!”

As for Jeremy, he spent the time before the guys showed up reflecting on his life with Melissa; and taking the time to carefully wrap her gift and write her a note. “It was a great moment of reflection over the past 6 years we’ve been together and how our paths in life aligned for this moment. Nervousness for the big event was there for sure because I’m not a person that likes to be the center of attention but mixed with excitement to celebrate with so many family and friends.”

Soon enough their mornings were complete and the two got a moment alone before walking down the aisle. Both agreed their first look was a good idea and turned out to be one of their favorite moments. “All my nervousness went away when I saw her and hugged her.”

Their first look was just the beginning of wonderful, memorable moments that were going to take place that day. “Watching Melissa walk down the aisle was the most memorable but most emotionally for me was sitting at the head table eating dinner, and looking around at all the people who traveled from all over the country (and beyond) to be with us. The importance of the day and the love and support of everyone there really hit me more than a few times that night.”

All the love poured out in celebration of Melissa and Jeremy was one of the most remarkable things about their wedding day, “…it is a very humbling experience.”

Melissa and Jeremy, Congratulations! May God bless the both of you.
