Her parents are Timothy and Lynette Miller of Duluth. His parents are Robert and Patty Wertis of Apple Valley, Minn.
The bride, a 2004 graduate of Two Harbors High School, earned her bachelor's degree in health sciences in 2010 from Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and her master's in radiologic science in 2014 from University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She is a CT scan technologist at Medical University of South Carolina's Heart and Vascular Center in Charleston.

The newlyweds reside in Charleston.
A lucky blind date
Bobby and Elyse never met when they both lived in Minnesota before college. They met in Charleston through a family friend of Bobby's who also knew Elyse through work. He told her and Bobby they'd be great for each other. After a few months, they reluctantly had a blind date, and five years later, they're married and in a new house in Charleston.
