On May 23, 2021, the Star Circle Quest alum and her fiancé Michael Macatangay wed in a simple backyard wedding in California, U.S.A. with just 15 guest present. "Our special day made special by my closest friends and relatives here in California in only 3 weeks!" the actress captioned one of her wedding posts.

Melissa then shared that her simple wedding started off as mundane day. "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."

She continued, "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 step dads backyard. [It] couldnt get any simpler than that."

For her walk down the aisle, Melissa confessed that she didn't really know what she wanted to wear, except for the fact that she wanted her dress to be "simple and comfortable." Lauren Berberabe by LBDesigns came through to create Melissa's dream and fuss-free frock. She even shared that her now-husband, Michael, was more involved in her wedding gown! "Can you believe he talked to Lauren before I did," she recalled.

The Batangas-based designer made Melissa a gorgeous bride in her dream gown that features a flattering deep V neckline, chic column silhouette, sheer billowy long sleeves, and cinched pleated belt.

To complete her minimalist look, Melissa opted for a neutral makeup look—just enough to give her a healthy glow under the sun. Melissa put up her hair in a neat bun and quite literally, clipped on her veil!
