Melissa and Oleg | Jewish Wedding at Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus

This enchanting South Florida wedding had everyone wanting to dance the night away. Melissa and Oleg met in  high school, but started dating after. Ten years into the relationship, Oleg being the romantic that he is, planned a beautiful proposal Thanksgiving day of 2015. When Melissa discovered rose petals on the front steps of her Uncle Berry’s home, she follow their trail through the house, out the back door, and onto the dock where she found Oleg, down on one knee and ring in hand. “I honestly do not remember what he even said. I cried and said yes right away!” Melissa shared with us. One can just imagine how beautiful that passionate scene must have been.

Fortunately there’s no need to imagine how gorgeous this couple’s wedding was. With the color scheme of both purple and pewter it gave the perfect mix of elegance and glam to this one of a kind wedding. Speaking of one of a kind, check out Melissa’s stunning jewel centered white rose bouquet! It was just another beautifully unique touch to create a truly special day.  Probably the most unique element to this wedding was Melissa’s incorporation of infinity signs, but these symbols were more than just decoration. “ I incorporated infinity signs into everything I could to honor my late Uncle Al. He was my Uncle, my godfather, and best friend. Unfortunately he passed away a little over three years ago and he was always supposed to walk me down the aisle so I wanted to honor him in every way I possibly could.” That endearing touch made Melissa and Oleg’s wedding all the more special.

Advice from Melissa to a recently engaged couple looking to plan their wedding:
