Melinda and Michael first met through a mutual friend at veterans park in Kannapolis.
Michael proposed while they were on the beach. There were very few people around during the day so they were almost alone. It was on December 1st and Melinda wanted to walk the beach and look at a shrimp boat because sometimes dolphins follow them. He was acting really strange and trying to get her to stay where she was so he couple propose. Of course everything still happened and she said yes!
They wanted to carry their love of the beach into their wedding, so they had a beach themed ceremony and reception. They chose a color scheme of turquoise, tiffany blue, and silver. All their decorations had driftwood and sea shells in them.
