It took me way longer than I expected to share this blog post just because I figured if I never posted it, the day never happened and that Megan and I are still stuck together like glue planning our little hearts away.
This gal is more precious to me than she will ever know simply because of our little 1+ year together and how much of an impact her and her now-husband, Justin, have had on my life. I’m not kidding when I say that I never knew them prior to them becoming an HLE couple! I met Megan & Justin during their pursuit to becoming the winner of the Wedding Collective Giveaway – a wedding giveaway hosted by the wonderful woman (and soon-to-be-new-mama) that is – Katelyn James Alsop! Somehow, I ended up participating as an un-biased panel voter, and as soon as I was finished viewing their video, none of the others stood a chance!
They stood out to me the most because they mentioned their desire to use their marriage for a purpose – to bring glory to God’s kingdom and by this portion of the video, I was already just in tears. I could literally feel their love and passion for, not only each other, but for the Lord. Without this giveaway, they weren’t sure when they’d be able to get married! They were fresh out of college and Megan was a small business owner, as well! I SO rooted for them, you guys, but it wasn’t in God’s plan for them to get married via this route. After narrowly missing the winning ticket, they figured it would be several years before they were able to get married in the way that they desired – surrounded by friends and family, a dream team of vendors and dancing the night away.
Soonafter, an entire group was formed by some of their closest family and friends, vendors rallied together and almost over a year later – they were married. God is GOOD. I am so grateful for this couple, their amazing wedding day, and the A-List team of vendors that I was able to collaborate with to bring their wedding day vision to life. This wedding was EVERYTHING!
