Melissa & Dave at Riverfront Park

The weather man was calling for horrible thunderstorms last Saturday. But Melissa & Dave kept thinking positive. And sure enough, it ended up being a (windy) but GORGEOUS day to get married! 🙂

Melissa’s family is from Irmo, while Dave’s is from Wisconsin. She’s a High-School English Teacher, while he’s a Nuclear Engineer teaching Navy Contractors. They met online and are both fun, adventurous, and full of life. Dave proposed under in their bungalow, with the moon overhead, during a trip to Peru!

They held their intimate wedding ceremony in a quiet clearing in a grove of trees at Riverfront Park. Afterwards, their reception was held at the Runaway Bay restaurant, overlooking the park.

I want to give a HUGE thank you to my friend and fellow photographer, Alice Keeney, for referring Melissa & Dave to me. They all do Cross-Fit together.  Alice was kind enough to give them my name when she was booked for their date.  🙂 Voila Events, The Music Maker, and Jim ‘n Nick’s were some of the other folks that help make their Big Day such a success!

Enjoy this slideshow of the story of their day, along with some of my favorites.  Check out the rest of their images at  CONGRATULATIONS, Melissa & Dave! You guys are an AMAZING couple!!!
