The wedding was held at the church of Holy Street on 16th Street NW. After the completion of the marriage ceremony, they went to the Hay-Adams Hotel for their reception via a vintage Bentley. Around 200 guests attended the grand reception.

How did they meet?

The couple first met in 2008 when both were fulfilling their respective assignments in Beijing during the 2008 Beijing Olympics for NBC4. However, their first interaction happened on air after they returned to the states.

After a month, infatuated Marvin was happy to attend a charity gala that she was hosting. Lindsay had invited Marvin along with other NBC colleagues to the event,

That night, they ended up kissing each other in the kitchen of her apartment. Lindsay was impressed the way he behaved like a perfect gentleman. They had roamed the peaceful auction together, drove to the after party in his car, and he had even dropped her to her apartment.

Still, this was only the start of the movie of their life.

She wasn't expecting he will say such a thing. When they reached her apartment, he asked her permission to walk her to the door, but she relented. However, they ended up kissing in her kitchen.

Things went casual for the next 6 months.But in April 2009, Melvin called her telling her that he wants to take their relationship to the next level. Unfortunately for Melvin, Lindsay refused his proposal being aware of the consequences of work-romance relationships.

Her refusal made Melvin extremely unhappy. Thus, the period of separation began in their relationship. But soon, he started calling her again, and It didn't take them long to be good friends after they started talking again about each other experiences, friends, family and the people they were dating.

Finally, in July of that year, they met for a drink at Bar Pilar even though Lindsay hadn't accepted his invitation at first. But she realized that Melvin was her soulmate after meeting him at the bar that night.

In 2011, Melvin thought that it was time to take the relationship forward. So, after a long weekend in Miami, he asked her to become his wife in a late-afternoon sailboat ride, and the rest is history.
