Wedding Day: Johnny & Melissa


Our story might be different then most people are used to. We met through an accidental friend request on Facebook!

On Tuesday morning July 23, 2013, I got this friend request from some guy I had never heard of. I noticed that we had a lot of mutual friends so I decided to message him and ask if I’d met him before. He said, “No, I’m sorry, somehow I mistakenly sent you a request.”


We are both pretty outgoing so it didn’t take long for our facebook conversation to turn to our mutual interests; volleyball, family. Over the course of the next couple days we realized that we definitely want to meet sometime and hang out! We first met in Laurel, Maryland. Johnny was taking a family of Amish to Chincoteague Island and he invited me to come along to the beach. It was a fun day of hanging out and getting to know each other a little better.

There was something so different and special about this guy. He was four years younger and that made me feel a little hesitant. But we after that day, we both decided to pray about pursuing a deeper relationship. I went home and talked to my family about it and he did the same.


Looking back, we can so clearly see God’s hand in how everything happened. Especially in how quickly our relationship progressed.

We started dating August 24, 2013- one short month after we met! Six amazing months later, February 14th, 2014, we were engaged! Then we set the date for the best day of our lives: September 20, 2014! God plans the best love stories if we let Him.
