Today we have a whimsical Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Florida Engagement Session shot by Jamie Reinhart Photography to share with you! Melissa and Zach love the beach so the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse was the perfect location to capture their love for one another!
Meet Melissa and Zach!
How did you meet your fiancé?
Zach and I met through a mutual friend, Elena. She kept telling me about this guy who she thought was perfect for me. I kept blowing her off since blind dates usually don’t go well and I was busy with work anyways. Elena eventually just gave Zach my phone number and we started texting. Within a week, we had our first date. The rest is history.
Tell us your proposal story!
On March 1, 2016, I thought I was planning a little get together with friends for Zach’s birthday. Little did I know, Zach had a much bigger plan. He was planning on proposing and had all of our friends in on his plan. After going out for Sushi, we all went back to our friend’s house for cake and drinks. When we all started singing “Happy Birthday” to Zach, I noticed a chocolate bar on the cake that said, “Will you marry me?” When I looked back at Zach he was down on one knee and proposed to me. Of course I said “YES” and then grabbed him to kiss him. I was completely surprised and speechless. I didn’t even notice my friends cheering or our “song” that Zach coordinated to have playing in the background (until I saw the video later).
What is your favorite date night?
Probably going out for dinner and drinks, then renting a movie. We just enjoy being together.
What is the inspiration behind your wedding?
All that matters is we are getting married. I just want our wedding to be a fun, happy day. I know it will be a day I never forget.
Where are you going on your honeymoon?
I have dreamed of going to Hawaii on my honeymoon for as long as I can remember. We’re still working on all the plans but I think we are going to go to Kauai! I can’t wait.
What do you love most about your fiancé?
I love how happy and special he makes me feel. He makes me laugh and smile everyday. We have so much fun together!
What are you looking forward to in your marriage?
Starting a family together!
