David and Melanie
Melanie and David met working together at the National Park Foundation. He invited her out after work one evening and the rest as they say... was history! Together since 2011, the couple lives on Capitol Hill with their two dogs, Daisy and Jackie. David and Melanie enjoy wine tasting, visiting national parks and exploring their neighborhood.

As much as the bride and groom love DC, they really enjoy getting out of the city and exploring the areas around us. One of Melanie and David's favorite activities is wine tasting, so it seemed fitting to celebrate their marriage at a winery! The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all took place at Linganore Winecellars in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Hurrican Joaquin hit that same weekend, putting a literal damper on some of the original plans, but the celebration continued regardless. Melanie and David were fortunate to have a photo makeup session a couple weeks later to capture the vines and fall foliage in the area.
