We had so much fun at Melissa and Travis’ Detroit holiday engagement session! First off, isn’t red Melissa’s power color?! It just looks so great on her! Plus it was so perfect for a holiday engagement session AND it’s Travis’ favorite color!

We ran around Campus Martius laughing and talking about their wedding plans. I am just so excited to watch these two get married!

Here’s more about this sweet couple:

Melissa, Dance Instructor/ Assistant Childcare Teacher

Travis (TC), Assistant General Manager for Buffalo Wild Wings

When did you meet?

March 15 2013 made it official April 5 2013

How did you meet?

A get together at a friend’s house. He asked me to be his beer pong partner and the rest was history! Lol

What’s your engagement story?

He had planned a trip to Chicago for us for the weekend. On Monday April 1st 2019 we went to the Shedd aquarium in Chicago and after seeing all of the amazing things there he took me down the boardwalk along Lake Michigan. While we were walking down the boardwalk he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with the Chicago skyline in the background. After taking some photos we went back to our super cool Warwick hotel where the Rat Pack used to stay and play! I was surprised with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries that was waiting for us in our room! While we enjoyed those we called our families and let them know the good news. We ended our day by having a great dinner and exploring Chicago’s nightlife. Oh and this was not an April Fools joke! Lol!
