Megan and Eric are a sweet couple I met through a friend of a friend of a friend — it definitely felt like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, but I’m so happy to have been available for their wedding! They were married on a beautiful Fall October day with mostly blue skies, some fall colors in the leaves, and the perfect amount of wind.
When I met Megan and Eric, I noticed right off the bat that it was difficult to find a time where Megan wasn’t smiling. Though both she and Eric come off as slightly shy, they are two of the kindest sweetest people you’d ever meet. They’re made for each other and they knew it right away when they met all those years ago working at the one and only Target!
Megan chose a beautiful full white dress and shoes that reminded me of Cinderella’s. Her flower girl also wore adorable little gold shoes with a black ribbon to coordinate with Megan’s dress. The mood at Megan’s childhood home was love and laughter and a whole lot of ladies!
I met Eric and his groomsmen at Forest Park and soon thereafter, Megan and Eric had their First Look. Having their First Look before their ceremony allowed for gorgeous daylight and photos before the wedding which worked out perfectly since they were having an evening ceremony indoors. With Megan’s bridesmaids off in the distance behind her and Eric’s groomsmen off a ways behind him, Megan and Eric were able to have their intimate First Look moment together. It was so symbolic of the love and support they both have with each other and their friends and family.
Megan and Eric both joked that they were the most hilariously awkward people coupled with equally awkward friends and were so nervous for photos on their wedding day. I laugh when a sweet couple says something like that because they were not only fun and lovable, but the entire wedding party made for a great time during photos and throughout the day.
So, thank you, Megan and Eric, as well as to your family and friends for making it such a fun totally non-awkward day of wedded bliss! Many congrats and best wishes on years of love and laughter to come!
