As a parent, one of the things you want most for your kids, is to be loved well. This wedding is extra close to my heart because the bride, for the last eight years, has loved my children well. She was the magical babysitter that my kids actually looked forward to coming. She came with crafts to do, special recipes to try, and sent cool gifts while traveling overseas. Megan has a heart for others, she is  caring and thoughtful, and deserved a man who would love her well. As her dad shared during his toast, he and her mom have been praying her entire life for this special man who would one day be worthy of her heart. God works in funny ways, and while Meg and Alex had crossed paths in college, it took a few years of them both traveling around the world before they would both landed back in the states, and on a first date. It didn’t take long for them to know that this was something special, and nine months later they were engaged. While I have only spent a little bit of time getting know Alex, it is clear Megan is happier than she has ever been. Her parents rave about him, and his parents are glowing with pride as well, as they send them off to begin this new chapter of their lives as husband and wife. With such adventurous spirits, and so much love and support behind them that I know they will do even more amazing things together than they were ever able to do a part!

Here is a sneak peek from their beautiful wedding at the Marietta Brickyards last weekend. Not only was the weather perfect, but they had a dream team of vendors headed up the amazing Joshua at Tailored Events, that helped bring to life their vision for the big day! With Meg’s thoughtful creativity, and Alex’s knowledge and passion for food, every detail from the custom coloring books, to the perfectly pink macaroons was flawlessly executed! Enjoy!
