On her wedding day, a bride usually starts her day off getting glammed up, surrounded by her bridesmaids, and has professionals all around her take care of everything. But… that’s nothing like how Melissa Ricks spent the morning of her big day.
The actress got married to fiancé Michael Macatangay in California, USA on May 23. She only got to post snapshots from the event via Instagram Stories, but three days later, she finally shared in detail what went on.
She began, “Our wedding. Our special day made special by my closest friends and relatives here in California in only 3 weeks!”
“I woke up early, hubby cooked breakfast, we went to the grocery to get some snacks and soda for the guests, went through the drive thru at jack in the box to get churros and tacos, then proceeded home to get ready,” said Melissa.
Then she added how she got herself ready for the intimate ceremony, “I did my own hair and makeup, zipped myself into my gown, drove down to the chapel, had a simple ceremony with 15 people. Afterwards, we had the reception in my stepdad's backyard. I couldn’t get any simpler than that.”
The “Star Circle Quest” alum also talked about the dress she wore, which was basically hand-picked by Michael himself!
“I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to wear, what I knew is I wanted it simple and comfortable, and that’s exactly how it was!” She continued, “Actually, Michael had more participation on my gown, from the fabric choice, to design! Love how hands-on he was!”
In an earlier post, Melissa revealed that she prayed to meet someone like Michael after believing she would never fall in love again.
They became a couple in 2019 and got engaged in August 2020. Melissa has a 5-year-old daughter named Kiera with ex Charles Togezaki.
