winter wedding at Covenant Murray Mansion | Racine, WI

watch this slideshow for a story of Melissa + Marc’s day…


Melissa and Marc are a true love story. Just being around them fills you with hope and joy, and we were so thrilled to capture their wedding day at the gorgeous Murray Mansion in Racine, WI.

Family is super important to Melissa and Marc, and they brought together their six children combined when they wed in a ceremony filled with their closest family and friends. Melissa, who is also an artist and photographer, designed so many little elements of their wedding details, including their hand-painted invitations and ceremony program, as well as a hand-painted scripture over the mantle in the ceremony space. Their small ceremony was officiated by Melissa's dad , Greg — who happened to bring these two together!

Melissa was one of the first people I met at our church in Gurnee, IL, and we became instant friends. However, we soon found out that Erich and I have several points of connection with Melissa and Marc, so I think God planned our meeting all along. After the ceremony, Erich and I got to put our cameras down and enjoy the beautiful celebration with these dear friends. We rarely get the opportunity to photograph AND be guests at a wedding, but this one was so special to us. Congratulations Melissa and Marc!
