Flaxton Gardens Wedding Photography – Cesar & Melissa
Tell me how you first met? Who what when where why? Melissa drove her housemate (who worked with Cesar) to pick up her laptop one afternoon, Cesar was working and was introduced to Melissa. Cesar then kept asking Melissa’s housemate for her number and then eventually met up for a drink.
Funny story is we actually met over a year earlier when Melissa and Cesar both worked at the same place – never really exchanged words though as Melissa quit the weekend Cesar started.
First time Cesar actually saw Melissa was months before this again when he was having coffee with his mum in the bar Melissa worked and she walked past him – he still remembers seeing her.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did ?. etc. Cesar: I knew she was the one when one day she drove me home and in a passing conversation I just knew how earthy, loyal and amazing she was and that she was the one.
Melissa: Time is what made me know – with every day the honeymoon period did not end and he never changed. Always put me first no matter how much of a grumpy/brat I had been.
About the proposal. Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? , how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out? Melissa: I knew it was happening at some point as we had been talking about it for a while. I just was not expecting him to do it on his birthday.
Cesar: I had it planned for 3 months. She had planned the most amazing birthday surprise bringing my mum over from France so I wanted to share my special day and make it special for her too. I was nervous as hell – just before I asked she had her head on my chest and asked me if I was okay as my heart was pounding in my chest.
One thing you love most about each other Cesar: I love that she is so real – she is so earthy and true to herself no matter what other people think.
Melissa: I love Cesar’s personality – I know that is very broad but I love how perfectly he fits with me. If I am grumpy or moody he will put up with me and make me feel better. If I am happy he will be on that level of happiness with me. He is so kind and caring and giving and loyal – I couldn’t choose just one word so it is his entire personality I love.
Besides getting married — what was the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day? Having all our family and friends together in one place – as it is our wedding it is all about us so that means everyone who is coming is so important to us and we would have never before had them all in the same room together. It will be amazing.
What’s your favorite trend for weddings right now? Melissa: Photos – I love all the artsy lovey photos of both the wedding parties and just bride/groom shots. I have a few hundred saved on my phone 🙂 Also hair and makeup of course.
