It was such a pleasure getting to work with Melissa and Mike for their Charleston, SC winter wedding this past year.  Getting to see their day featured on Charleston Weddings Magazine blog The Wedding Row makes it extra sweet.  See their full feature by clicking here.

Crazy enough, we never even met until the weekend of their wedding day!  Sometimes when we work with clients that are having a destination wedding for either them or us most of the communication could take place just through phone, email and/or FaceTime meet-ups.  The trust these two gave to me, I didn’t take it for granted and SOOOO appreciated it!

Their dating story:  We started dating after I got a parking ticket in front of his house (my college was right across the street). After the parking ticket, I messaged him asking if I could park in his driveway. We never stopped talking after that. We have been together 3.5 years.

The proposal: Memorial Day Weekend 2015. We were driving up to New York (where we’re both from) and when we entered Virginia there’s a sign that says “Virginia is for Lovers.” He asked me there.
