Meet Mel

It's nice to meet you! I am a warm weather chaser, which leads to many winter trips to Florida, but during the summer I am living my dream. Helping to make your wedding dreams come true is now my life's passion. I believe that your wedding should be exactly that, YOUR wedding.

My late husband and I wanted to teach our kids to serve other people. A natural outlet for that was in our church where we are heavily involved. As a family our goal at The Grand Estate is to serve each couple and ensure that you have a stress free wedding. Please reach out to us if you have any questions. 

I am a Freeport born and raised girl who loves weddings and making other girls wedding dreams come true.

Misael and I met in Nicaragua. I was serving on a missions trip with our church and teaching english at the college that Misael was attending. We got married in Nicaragua in March of 2018, and eventually planned our Grand Estate wedding in November 2019. One of my favorite things about being our onsite coordinator is sending the bridal party down the aisle, and fixing the brides dress right before she goes down to become Mrs.

Misael takes care of all the landscaping, mowing and a lot of the heavy lifting. Misael and I love working with all of our couples, but we have a special connection to those of different cultures.


We can't wait to meet you!

There's nothing quite like the beauty of the great outdoors when it comes to taking photos. I'm currently on a mission to take portraits at all 58 US National Parks.

Instant coffee? No thank you. I'll wait the extra minutes for a fresh roasted French pressed coffee any day. My mornings aren't complete without a hot cup of joe.

NIcaragua is our first love, but Weddings are a close second!

Ethan and I met at Lenape VoTech where I was learning cosmetology and Ethan was in construction. A few years after high school we met back up and started our relationship. We are so excited to get married at The Grand Estate April 2022. 
I love everything about weddings, but if I had to pick my favorite it would be sending the Bride down the aisle. There are so many special moments that I get to witness as she has the last conversation as Miss, with her dad or other family member.

Kayla and I met in college and got married in May of 2014. Just one year before we started The Grand Estate. (big sad face) I was a youth pastor in Connecticut for 2 and a half years, then we moved back home. When we moved back I managed The Grand Estate for three years, then Covid-19 turned the whole world upside down. During this time I transferred from The Grand Estate to our sister company Classic Tent Rentals. What that means for the Estate is that I am the 24/7 On call guy as well as the one who taps the kegs. Party on!
