Melissa & Daniel | The Historic Post Office | Hampton Wedding Photographer

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Scherbenske!

So, fun story: Dan lived with my parents this past summer (right after they moved to their beautiful new waterfront house in Yorktown) and so we spent several BBQs together throughout the summer.  He and Mel were long distance at the time, and you could just tell how much he ached to have her home.  I asked him rather bluntly when he was planning on putting a ring on it and he smiled and said “Soon.” A few weeks later, Mel came home and Dan wrapped the beautiful oak tree overlooking the water in my parents backyard in lights and got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.  You can imagine how excited I was when they eventually asked me to be their wedding photographer!

Every wedding takes a village, and trust me ya’ll, I’ve seen lots of wedding days and a lot of villages, but Mel and Dan’s was one for the books!  It was so sweet to see their people surround them! An aunt made the gorgeous cake, a housemate was the coordinator, a bridesmaid did hair, an old housemate did flowers…the list goes on and on and I was just amazed at what a talented, generous group they had making this day happen!

These two are so sweet and playful together, joyfully grounded in Jesus- something that was evident in every moment of their day. It was a beautiful privilege to be a part of!
