David EudyRACHEL WOOLARD AND DAVID EUDY WON MONTHLY’S 2018 ENGAGEMENT CONTEST. Their gorgeous engagement photo got the most “likes” on Facebook — 91, to be exact. 


Matthew Miller, executive director of Shadow Shine Photography in Grand Rapids, Michigan, snapped this shot of the couple at the Battery in downtown Charleston. Their kiss could almost be a dance pose, thanks to the swing in Woolard’s hair.

“Matt is my sister’s friend from college and he’s also going to fly down and take our wedding photos,” said Woolard, who is from Michigan.

Eudy and Woolard met in 2015 through a mutual friend when Woolard was trying to recruit members for her worship team at church. Eudy was one of the only students who showed up to help, and the rest is history. He proposed on Aug. 20, 2017.

The couple’s wedding will be Sept. 22 at The Paddocks on Hilton Head Island, with a honeymoon to the Bahamas planned for October.

“We are a missionary couple, and we count our blessings,” said Eudy, a Hilton Head native.

Woolard is worship director at New Life Baptist Church in Goose Creek, near Charleston, and is earning her master’s degree in education at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Eudy works for his family’s landscaping business, Genesis Lawncare, and is a seminary student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.

After the wedding, the couple will reside in Goose Creek.
