The couple’s outdoor wedding, performed Sunday, September 4, 2011 by Minister Lynn Turner of Weddings Performed, was held at Oakwind Bed & Breakfast in Alvin, Texas. Melissa surprised the groom by arriving to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage.
The couple surprised their guests when their schnauzer, Edo, walked down the aisle with their wedding attendants. Marcus and Melissa’s wedding beneath the beautiful, old and sprawling oak trees at Oakwind included the sand ceremony. Many thanks to Oakwind Bed & Breakfast for their hospitality; The Flip Side DJ Entertainment Service for setting the beautiful scene to music; and Just Say Cheese Photography for capturing the wonderful moments of the day.
