Love! Melissa & Ben Introducing Theo

 On a warm September day, a few months after the birth of their first child, Theo, Ben & Melissa gathered with scores of friends and family to celebrate their vows and the creation of their new family. The wedding was held in an old movie theater that has been converted to a children's museum and the DIY ceremony backdrop was constructed from fabric Melissa's mother had collected (including her 70s era wedding dress).

 Guests enjoyed happy hour in the museum courtyard while the inside was transformed for dinner service and dancing.
