10-15-09 Off to a Thursday Wedding / by Melanie Grizzel

Today I have the pleasure of shooting Devon and Alberto's wedding. 

They met while attending West Point together and married while on active duty in Iraq. They had a hard time finding a place to get married all of the other enlisted folks could easily point out 6 places to get divorced, none of them knew where to tie the knot. Devon was working in intelligence and Alberto spent upwards of 9 months building a new base. Devon got Alberto's power of attorney and went to the Justice of the Peace and married them in his absence and sent him a surprise wedding ring through military post. When their missions were complete they returned to the states and began their lives together which includes this intimate little Thursday wedding at a Salado Winery. I feel so proud. Thank you for including me.
Stay tuned. I hope to blog Nancy + John's wedding tomorrow afternoon.
Take good care.
