Venyse and Melvin were married at the Encanto Park Clubhouse in Phoenix. There sunset ceremony overlooked the gorgeous lagoon at the park. The Clubhouse is an amazing Spanish Mission Period Revival historic building. Between the architecture of the Clubhouse and the enchanting trees surrounding the park, this place is a dreamy venue for a wedding.
Venyse and Melvin met on eHarmony and there first date was at a coffee shop. They bonded over a love for Doctor Who and other SciFi movies and shows. When they are not hanging out with their cat Oliver and rambunctious pup Roxi, they love traveling together! There favorite place to visit is Amsterdam.
Anytime Venyse and Melvin were together on their wedding day, it was pure magic. They started off their day together with a first look. During their first look, they read their vows to each other. It was a very sweet and intimate moment. After their first look, we explored the beautiful architecture of the clubhouse and the park. Venyse & Melvin were all smiles with each other. With a few funny faces snuck in!
The ceremony took place just as the sun was setting, creating a romantic backdrop for the wedding. A member of the brides family gave a traditional Maori blessing to start the ceremony. For another personal touch, the ceremony was officiated by a friend of the couple. Before we knew it, it was time for the reception. The bride’s father, the maid of honor, and the best man all gave heartfelt toasts to start off the reception. Then it was time for the couples first dance, where everyone was trying to snag a photo of the happy couple. It was all too clear how excited everyone was for Venyse and Melvin to finally be married!
Venyse and Melvin, I hope you guys have a wonderful marriage full of adventures worthy of sharing with the Doctor.
