New Year’s Eve is a celebration of new beginnings, reflecting on things past, and the promise of things to come, so what better way to ring in the new year than by beginning the journey into eternal love? For Melanie and Doug, there was certainly no better way to end one year and begin the next as their love for each other rested happily on their hearts, so they decided to elope on the best day of the year. Putting aside all worries and unimportant details, they headed out to the dock resting on the water in a lovely park in Tampa with their two best friends by their sides and exchanged tearful, sweet vows. Although few stood nearby as they became husband and wife, love permeated the air all around and left the feeling of sweet ever after on every heart. Thanks to the amazing talent of Sarah & Ben, who documented their heartfelt day, you too can ring in the new year with the contagious feeling of love on your heart!
Happy ever after to Melanie and Doug!
