It’s been said that love can be found in the most unexpected places. Why not under the sea?
Three years ago, Melissa Calderwood and Clint Burr, Jr. met for the first time on a blind date at Birch Aquarium at Scripps. They discovered they had a lot in common, especially a love of marine life.
As their relationship grew, so did their mutual love and appreciation of the ocean. The couple fondly remembers early dates full of weekend treks to the Aquarium and tide pools in La Jolla. Though the couple has relocated to Washington state, they return to San Diego frequently to visit family, the aquarium, and the ocean.
On August 12, Melissa and Clint were wed at Calumet Park in La Jolla. Because Birch Aquarium was such an integral part of their love story, the couple stopped by for a visit and to snap some photos during their magical day.
Congratulations to Melissa and Clint! We wish you an ocean of happiness.
