These two met online and the officiant jokingly told the story of how they lied and told their families that they met at Target. Really guys? Target? It didn’t even matter because their families supported their relationship from the beginning. I got a little teary listening to Megan’s dad explain that after years and years of trying to understand all of Megan’s obsessive phases of her childhood (Beanie babies, Disney, Celine Dion… Megan we could be bestie, I had those phases too!) he finally understand her latest obsession…. Nick. He went on to say that he couldn’t have hand picked a better best friend and husband for his daughter and THAT is when the waterworks began.

What a beautiful day! From the teary first look to the toasts that left everyone in a puddle, this day had to have been everything that Nick and Megan dreamed it would be. It was SUCH an honor to be a part of it. Michael and I loved being there for these two all day. It’s such a fun job to be the “behind the scenes” person at a wedding! You really bond with your couples when you’re with them for 8-10 hours straight!! It was sad to say goodbye at the end of the evening but I have been looking forward to this post since we drove away from their reception! Enjoy some of my favorites from their day!!!

Loved this nautical suite!

Her MOH’s striped dress was so much fun!

How sweet! If Bokeh boy was alive during our wedding, I would have wanted a picture like this!!! :)


The sweetest first look. He just adores her.

Oh lala!!!

One of my favorites!

Loved these girls!
