Melissa & Clyde | Portsmouth Wedding


I am a firm believer, and have told so many of my brides, investing in a quality vendor team will ensure your day runs smoothly and you can actually enjoy your wedding day! That was definitely the case for Melissa and Clyde!!

The day started with Melissa getting ready at a nearby hotel so her mom could be with her, then scooting over to the venue to finish getting dressed and put on the final touches. Her and Clyde decided to share a first look and we made sure she got some twirls in with that stunning dress!! After that first look, she shared some time with mom and dad and her father’s reaction was priceless!! He just hugged her and said “wow” over and over. Their ceremony was officiated by Suzanne Kennedy and I was completely taken aback when Clyde decided to SING his vows, since Melissa loves show tunes! It totally caught her off guard in the best way!! I loved that they passed around wishing stones and collected them during the ceremony for guests to share their good fortunes with the happy couple.

Jamie with Jamie Leigh Events brought their intimate wedding day to life and filled the gorgeous Woman’s Club of Portsmouth with blues and greens and warm tones, draped lighting by Stage Right and the most delicious food from Chef by Design to make their event perfect from start to finish for their guests and the couple!! Lots of dancing, a gelato bar, and a confetti exit made March 10, 2018 the best day for Clyde and Melissa to make it official! thanks for having me you two!
