When Ross and Megan planned their beautiful springtime wedding that would take place on a stunning golf course…
…with their reception completing the night under the stars….
…I’m guessing they didn’t picture it being 103 degrees outside! But that’s what they got… and they just decided to roll with it.
They didn’t let it ruin their day, they just drank a lot of water and made frequent appearances into the most heavily air conditioned rooms they could find. And their bridal party were troopers as well!
Actually it did turn about being OK. They did have a bit of a sweaty ceremony but the beauty of it distracted everyone from their sunburns.
And by the time evening had rolled around the air had started to cool down and their spectacular patio reception turned out to be everything they had dreamed of.
I LOVED these chalkboards that Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club had set up. Megan and Ross transformed into fun decor by writing table numbers as well as using them like you see below!)
If was a beautiful way to finish out Ross and Megan’s perfectly planned wedding that included everything from singing toasts (which actually wasn’t part of Megan’s plan, that was a surprise from her dad)…
… to hand rolled cigars…
They had done it. Megan and Ross had braved the heat, planned a perfect wedding, enjoyed their big day to the fullest, and of course… married the loves of their lives.
What more could you ask for out of a wedding?!
I have to take a second to talk about their reveal moment, or “first look”.
The reason is because just as Megan was getting ready to walk down the aisle to get married, she turned to me and said, “Breanna, thank you SO much for convincing us to see each other before the wedding! I don’t know what we were thinking when we were considering not doing it! I’m so much less nervous than I would be otherwise right now and it made our day so much better to have shared more of it together. Thank you!” And then she headed down the aisle to meet her groom, whom she was no less happy to be seeing for the second time that day!
If you’re planning your wedding and you’re still not sure about whether or not you should see one another before the wedding, take a moment to educate yourself about it so you can make an informed decision by reading what Megan read before her wedding, “The Reveal Moment: to have or not to have”.
To Ross and Megan: I really am so incredibly proud of how much you guys decided to chill and forget about the small stuff so you could focus on each other and the relationships surrounding you. I’m especially happy you chose to do that because you guys having fun means that we get to have a ton of fun with you!
We really enjoyed hanging out with you both and being a part of something so incredibly important to you.
Thanks or choosing us and trusting us.
I hope these pictures help you remember this day perfectly for the rest of your lives!
