ALYSSA AND DAVE
Dave and Alyssa met in 2009 on Lake
Minnetonka through mutual friends.
Unfortunately the timing wasn't right
as they were both dating someone else.
Nonetheless, Dave nurtured their friendship
by inviting Alyssa boating every
weekend that summer. Once summer
came to an end, Dave and Alyssa blew
their separate ways like leaves in the
fall. The two didn't meet again until 2015
when Dave reached out to Alyssa on a
gloomy spring day. This time it was right.
Just a few months after Dave came back
into Alyssa's life her father, Joe Ebel,
suddenly passed away. Dave only met
Joe once but it was a true blessing he
had that opportunity and could be there
for Alyssa as she grieves the difficult loss.
Dave proposed to Alyssa during a Florida
vacation in February 2016 and they
married in Voyageurs National Park only
eight months later. The location holds
a special place in Alyssa's heart as she
grew up on Ash River Trail, just outside of
Voyageurs. Ash Trail Lodge owners Deb
and Steve Wieber did an incredible job
facilitating the very DIY wedding decoration
theme, food, entertainment, tent, and
more. Additional special thanks to the
several volunteers ranging from friends,
family, other local resort/cabin owners,
and more who were involved in the big day.
Today, the couple happily resides in South
Minneapolis and are expecting their first baby.
