This weeks wedding recap is all about Megan and Michael, who came together with their family and friends on December 30th to celebrate their love!
Megan started getting ready for the big day with her bridesmaids and a little help from Leslie Ellis on hair and makeup.Megan looks absolutely stunning and she doesn’t even have her dress on yet. Speaking of, look how gorgeous her dress is in this next picture. Megan picked a beautiful full lace gown with cap sleeves and boning down the front to add a little flair! She paired her dress with beautiful diamond earrings and pearl accent pieces in her hair.
Michael had some fun baseball socks hidden under his pant legs and cufflinks to remind him of his other love!
Once the bride and groom were all ready, they went to Belle Meade Plantation for the big event! When they arrived Megan & Michael got to sneak a peak of each other before the ceremony. Look how happy and excited Michael is to see his bride.
Could they be any cuter?! Theses photos by Krista Lee Photography are stunning! Don’t you just love the setting?Love this shot with her dad! He will always have that handkerchief as a wonderful memory!
The Bridal Party
After Megan & Michael had their fill of pictures alone, the bridesmaids and groomsman joined for a few more.
The pops of yellow in their flowers brought a little brightness to the winter day!
Megan’s bridesmaids looked beautiful in their floor length grey dresses with a lace bodice!The mix of white and yellow flowers really brought together the cold of winter with the brightness of spring to come!What a handsome group of men!
Megan got a little cold, so she donned a fur shawl that looked absolutely wonderful with her dress! She brought in more touches of yellow with shawls for her bridesmaids and flower girls!Just taking a quick break before they headed to the ceremony!
They had an intimate ceremony with candles lining the aisle for Megan to walk through!
Between the lights and the yellow flowers, their programs matched the theme perfectly!Happy tears!
The chandelier above them added a gorgeous touch with the ceremony in the middle of the stables at Belle Meade Plantation.
After their vows were said and a few tears were shed, they kissed to seal their vow!
The room looked absolutely gorgeous with flowers everywhere. The draping around the head table brought the whole room together!
Megan & Michael chose fun ways to keep their guests entertained! They had their guests sign a picture instead of a guest book as well as having the guests leave well wishes and advice for the bride and groom to read later!
From the plates at the place settings to the dessert table, everything in the room was beautiful and picked out to match perfectly!
Their cake even had a fun surprise! From the front, it was a beautiful tiered cake, but around back there were secret rock climbers bravely scaling the rock face of the cake! Megan loves to rock climb and really wanted to incorporate that into the wedding cake. For a while Michael was against it, all while secretly planning to surprise her with the cake she really wanted. When they went around the cake to the back to do the ceremonial cutting, Megan saw the climbers and was soooooo happy! (Keep reading to see her reaction)
After a quick cocktail hour Megan & Michael arrived at the reception and enjoyed toasts given by their best man and maid of honor. There’s that excitement we were talking about!
Then it was time for their first dance as husband and wife to Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd.
Don’t you just love watching the couple dance together for the first time?Following the first dance, Megan’s dad to accompanied her on the dance floor. They had a special moment and danced to My Little Girl by Tim McGraw. A few hours of dancing later it was time for the couple to leave. They were sent off by their guests in a tunnel of bubbles!
Congratulations to the wonderful couple! They had a beautiful wedding and we wish you eternal happiness together that is as beautiful as the day it started!
