Bork-Davis Wedding

Bride's Name: Dr. Devon Bork
Groom's Name: Dr. Gavin Davis
Wedding Date: May 18, 2009
City of Wedding: Charleston
Church: St. Luke's Chapel

In just a few days we will be celebrating the 1st anniversary of our son, Gavin and his lovely wife Devon. They met during the first week of med-school at MUSC, and began dating shortly thereafter. When they found out that they would both be going to Univ. of Alabama to begin their residencies, they decided (with very little notice) that they wanted to be married in Charleston (Devon's hometown) three days after their graduation from MUSC. Our daughter had been planning her own wedding in Baltimore for several months, and was planning to be married just 5 weeks later! As you can imagine, we were initially panicked at the idea of two weddings so close together! As it turned out,both weddings were wonderful!! Gavin and Devon decided to marry on a Monday, and do a lot of their planning themselves. Not only were they finishing med-school, preparing to take the second part of their boards, and planning a move to Birmingham early in June...they set about designing and printing their own invitations, planning and making their own decorations (Devon and her mother made all of the flower arrangements) and planning their reception which was held at the I'on Creek Club and catered by Cru Catering. The decision to marry on a Monday was financial genius in every respect. May 18,2009 dawned wet and unseasonably cold for Charleston, but by 5PM it had cleared and by the time they cut their cake, we were blessed with one of the most spectacular sunsets any of us has ever seen! They both agree that working together to make their wedding day a beautiful one is one of their best memories! We love Charleston and visit as often as possible...however, their graduation/wedding week was one of our favorite stays in the Holy City!
