Megan met the man of her dreams, Wade, over Thanksgiving break when she was hanging out with his sister. They spent the evening chatting and after jokingly inviting him to lunch the next day, he actually showed up and the rest is history. 

Wade proposed to Megan after a whole day of activities he had planned. After all of the that, the couple decided to go home and get ready for dinner. When she came out all of the cards that Megan had sent Wade in college during their long distance relationship were on the counter. She couldn’t believe he had kept them all! He asked her to read through them and then meet him in the backyard, where he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. 

Megan and Wade used Pinterest like a lot of couples do to help plan their wedding. Megan chose her bridesmaid dresses first and then designed the flowers and decor around the purple she had chosen. She loved the pop of gold she had seen all over Pinterest, so she decided to incorporate that as well. Megan’s favorite part of her wedding was choosing her vendors and planning the “big-picture” of their day. She read reviews online and stalked each vendor’s Facebook page to make her selections on which ones would help her pull off the celebration. She wanted to make sure that she trusted all of them, so she wouldn’t have a single thing to worry about on her big day.

Although, it was hard to choose her favorite moments of the wedding she said that the couple had such an amazing time dancing and spending time with their guests at the reception. They loved seeing all of the people they both love so much gathered into one room. The most intimate and special moment to Megan and Wade was their ceremony, because that's what the day is all about. 

Megan’s biggest piece of advice to brides and grooms planning a wedding, “It’s no joke when people say the entire day flies by. I wish Wade and I would have discussed how we were going to handle the reception. We both wanted to talk to everyone, but hardly spent much time with each other. It was the best day of our lives, but it was a total whirlwind.” The couple was very thankful they had a videographer to help them remember all of the small moments.
