Melissa and Blair met in College at the University of Maryland, College Park. It wasn’t until January 2014 when their union was established. Being that they both were sports fanatics, it was only fitting that their first date involved them attending a Washington Redskin game. It was their love of the game that brought them together. As their dates became significant, they knew it was meant to be. As time evolved, they became best friends and began to feel more comfortable around one another. Like most couples that have their “go-to spots” for dates, Melissa and Blair always tried to incorporate new ways to spend time with each other to make it more exciting. Whether it was trying new restaurants, going to concerts, lavish trips, sporting events, recreational activities, bowling, kayaking, or an occasional walk around town, they made sure to create new memories every chance they got.
Melissa said that it came as a total surprise when Blair decided to propose at the National Harbor. The weather was perfect and the sun shined ever so bright, and what she thought was just another photo opportunity turned into him getting down on one knee. The National Harbor, located at the Potomac River in Oxon Hill, MD, is where they spent a lot of their spontaneous date nights. On the afternoon of August 31, 2016, Blair told Melissa to get dressed so they could enjoy a nice dinner on the waterfront. As they arrived and began walking along the waterfront Blair asked a patron walking by to take a picture of them, and right before Melissa's eyes, he was down on one knee asking her to marry him! Of course she said YES! Melissa and Blair are so excited to start the beginning of their eternal LOVE story. Melissa said that Blair is all that she could ask for in a husband and she can’t wait to see what life has in store for them.
We are looking forward to our very own B Astonished Events CEO wedding. Melissa and Blair will be married on August 18, 2017 at The Sunset Room by Wolfgang Puck at the National Harbor followed by a waterside cocktail hour and a lavish, elegant, and chic reception.
