Jonah and Melisa used to pick on each other as kids, but secretly Jonah was always crushing on her. Over the years they would see each other around here and there, but nothing ever came about... that is until this past year when they reunited at a friends birthday party. Since that night Melisa and Jonah have yet to leave each others side.
Earlier this year Jonah asked her dad for her hand in marriage and in August he surprised Melisa and her family by popping the question during a camping trip. He arranged a group photo to be taken and then dropped down on one knee in front of everyone! She was totally shocked! Happy Tears were shed from everyone! I am so glad that my sister found her happily ever after!

I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
