He cried when she walked down the aisle toward him. Big, soft tears rolled down his face and he wore a look of astonishment seeing his bride smile at him as she descended the steps of the Puddingstone Resort. Melissa refers to David as her best friend, the person who wipes her tears, cheers her on, and remains on the dance floor until the last song has played.

David and Melissa met through online, through youtube, in exact. Melissa has a youtube channel where she enjoys posting music and comedy videos! One day, David was on youtube searching for the right piece of music for a short film he was directing. When David heard Melissa’s voice, he was in awe. Watching Melissa’s videos, he adored her beautiful voice and he couldn’t get over how gorgeous she was! David was on a mission, in desperate search of Melissa and hoping to get in contact with her, he happened to find Melissa on myspace. And there it began, a friendship began to blossom that turned into a long distance relationship. Melissa lived in Nevada and he lived in California. Shortly after, Melissa and her friends took a road trip to California to meet David…well, and that’s where friendship grew into something special, love.

On a very special day, David had planned a surprise. Well, a big surprise:) He had taken Melissa on a helicopter ride over Los Angeles! Poor David was SO nervous about the proposal, he was throwing up all morning and couldn’t stop thinking about the big moment! But once the helicopter took off, his stomach settled. The couple spent some time flying over downtown and Hollywood, when suddenly the pilot said that they were ahead of schedule and asked if they wanted to land on a hilltop on Malibu overlooking the ocean, which of course was all part of David’s romantic proposal. When they landed, the pilot was fully aware of the proposal, and apart of the plan, she had rolled out a sweet picnic set up on a table overlooking the ocean. With a silly excuse, the pilot quickly disappeared giving the couple some privacy. David, being the organized David he is, quickly set up his camera and pushed record. He got down on one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. Of course, without hesitation, Melissa said YES!

Later that evening, David drove Melissa back to his apartment. When Melissa stepped inside, she noticed the place was completely decorated! David told Melissa that their friends were coming over to celebrate the happiness. But that wasn't the end of the surprises! As excited as they were, they turned on Skype where they wished to share the news with Melissa’s mother, but she was right behind the door, waiting to jump out and surprise Melissa! David flew her out so she can celebrate the happy couple!

On October 18, 2015, as their friends and family gathered around them, David promised to stay true and hold hands as they age, memorizing the grooves and crevices on each finger. As husband and wife, they promised eternity and a day in their vows and sealed their commitment with a kiss. The rest of the evening was spent popping, clinking, and cheering to what may have been the happiest couple in the world at that exact moment. The earth paused on its axis, with just enough time to David and Melissa to realize that, yes, their day was nothing short of perfection.

David and Melissa, you deserve the best, wishing you many years of happiness, joy and love! Blessings!
