Melissa Williams, a licensed massage therapist and owner of Melissa Meliou Massage & Spa, met Travis Bennett, Project Manager for Basic Builders General Contractors, through friends. Before they knew it, they were going to dinner, seeing movies, going on a cruise and falling in love.
Parents of the groom are Joe and Peggy Bennett. Parents of the bride are Julie and Rickey Bookman of Navasota, Texas and Tom Williams.
“Both of us have always wanted to get married with our toes in the sand,” says Travis.They tied the knot at Zoetry Casa del Mar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This all- inclusive property only allows one wedding per weekend, creating an exclusive feeling for the bride and groom. Missy beamed in her sweetheart cut mermaid gown by Alfred Angelo. The couple was surrounded by 20 of their closest family and friends during the ceremony and honeymooned in Cabo for two weeks where they enjoyed swimming with dolphins, ATV rides, zip lining and deep-sea fishing. When they returned to Houston, the celebration continued with a Texas reception at lazy W ranch in Waller.
Travis’ Advice For The Groom
Grooms – say yes to everything the bride needs the last two months before the wedding, mostly to keep bridezilla from emerging!
Make sure to take a little break after the ceremony and pull your new wife away from all the partying to give yourself a minute to relax, maybe take your shoes off and take a deep breath.
Travis’ Advice For Brides
Get a wedding planning folder and keep every contract you have in it. Keep notes and be very thorough with questions and your expectations from every vender you are considering. Things are crazy while the wedding planning is going on, if you have notes and contracts to look at – it’s one less thing you have to commit to memory. also, do what is important to you and your fiancée in your wedding. You will remember every special detail and you won’t want to com- promise with anyone when something is important to you. Last, just enjoy the process… when it’s all done you will have the love of your life next to you forever!
