She was moving into her college apartment with her engineer room mate. They needed a few pieces of furniture moved: a bed a random couch and a few boxes. Lucky for Melissa, her roommate, being one of the few females in George Mason’s Engineering program, knew of the perfect gentlemen for the job!
In walked two handsome and intelligent Mason engineers who effortlessly helped the girls move in. They chatted as the girls unpack their boxes, cracking jokes and welcoming them to the neighborhood. Carl in particular caught Melissa’s attention right off the bat. He was tall, charming and witty- and best of all, he made her laugh.
Move forward five years and Melissa and Carl are now planning their vineyard wedding! We photographed our lovely couple’s engagement session at Dyke Park right off of GW Parkway. These two were true troopers as they elegantly posed for our camera in the grueling DC summer heat. The boats made for a fun and dynamic backdrop!
Carl knew exactly how to make the love of his life smile as he told stories and reminisced down memory lane. They walked hand in hand through the rows and rows of boats docked by the shores of the Potomac, smiling all the way.
Carl and Melissa we cannot wait until your wedding (one month to go!) and Carl- we hope you get that elephant!!!
