Our Wedding Day – Dillon & Megan

{ 1 Corinthians 13 }

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

April 26th, 2019 was the best day ever. I got to marry my best friend of four years and celebrate the blissful occasion with a hundred of our closest family and friends. On this day, eight months of planning, preparation, stress, and hard work came to fruition in the best possible way!

We had an evening wedding. I spent the early afternoon getting ready at the venue with six of my best girlfriends. We did our hair and makeup in our matching robes while jamming out to music, snacking on muffins and fruit and sipping mimosas. After I put on my dress, it was time for the father/daughter first look. I wanted to share the moment with my biological father who has always been my best friend, but I also wanted to honor my stepdad who has always been there for me ever since he married my mom while I was in high school. I also danced with them both for the father/daughter dance.

Next, it was time for the bride and groom first look. Growing up, I was always one of those girls who wanted to be traditional and not see the groom before the ceremony, but in order to have more time for dancing and celebrating after the ceremony, this was the best option. No bad luck came from it, ha. Plus, we wanted to read our written vows to each other personally. Our amazing photographers scoped out the venue and found a cute little outdoor arch by a lake, with cobblestones leading up to it, where we experienced the moment. We stood back to back, read our vows and then turned around to see each other for the first time. It was so special, and something we will cherish forever!

The last order of business before the ceremony was to capture the bridal party and family photos while guests started arriving. After the ceremony, Dillon and I took a few more photos together as the sun was setting. Afterward, we went right into the first dances before sitting down to eat dinner with everyone. After toasts, it was time to cut the cake and dance the night away! We shared a last dance together, alone before walking out of the venue under a tunnel of sparklers held by our family and friends and hopping into the getaway car to drive away as a newlywed couple.

Everything went perfectly and better than we could have planned. The day was so fun and it’s true what they say, it does go by in flash! I had the most amazing group of girls, pastor, photographer, DJ, and a surprise blessing – our videographer’s wife Meredith that made the whole day run smoothly. You can watch our wedding video at the end of this post to experience the whole day!
