This wedding, friends. First, Melanie’s Reem Acra gown looks like it was designed for her alone (and the custom gray is amaze). Then there’s Carondelet House for the venue, which is always a stunner when adorned with personal touches and an intimate guest list. Lastly there was this teeny little *interruption* during the reception when Maroon 5 crashed the wedding and surprised everyone while filming their video for “Sugar”, which M + R ended up making an appearance in. Ummm, best night ever?

Big thanks to Katie Pritchard Photo for sending this one our way!

Melanie says, Ryan and I wanted each of our guests to know how special they were to us, so for each of their table place cards we found old pictures of the guests and us together. We printed the pictures onto cards using Print.stagram and used an old school label maker to write their names. On the back of each table card, we wrote a multiple choice quiz question for each of our guests that referred to either an inside joke or a fond memory that we shared with them. The correct answer to the question corresponded to the table number they would be sitting at! The entire process was a bit time consuming, but Ryan and I had so much fun taking a trip down memory lane in order to create an individualized table card for each of our guests.

As the story goes, Maroon 5 apparently crashed several weddings that night for their music video, coordinating with venues. It just happened to be that M + R’s wedding was that night, and only Ryan knew anything was happening—not even their vendors. The sheet dropped and there they were…

After surprising everyone with a performance of “Sugar”, they sang “She Will Be Loved” for their first dance. Pretty sweet! Melanie tells us, It was an unforgettable experience and we can’t thank Maroon 5 and Black Dog Films enough for being so amazing and helping to make our day so special.

A srsly cute film by Love & You Video to recap:

You can watch out for Melanie + Ryan in the official music video too.

Maroon 5 was pretty epic, but our favorite moment of the wedding was the ceremony. We wrote the whole thing together and did our own vows. We also collected stones as tokens of support from our guests. Putting the time time into the ceremony and having everyone there in support was incredibly special and meaningful. Maroon 5 just pushed it over the top!

Uh, YEAH! Too cool. Congrats guys!

This is a stunningly beautiful wedding, but Maroon 5 crashing it is the best thing I've seen all day. Talk about a party to remember. And doesn't Adam Levine look so handsome in a tux?
