Even though they’d known each other since high school – they went to prom together twice! – they’d gone their separate ways for a while before reconnecting several years after college. But this time, it was right. Megan and Josh were meant to be together and now they get to start their forever side by side.
They were both a little nervous. But once they saw each other at their First Look and were able to hug and talk for a few minutes, they were ready for the day! And what a day it was… Lion’s Gate Manor is tucked away in the woods behind a gorgeous home and it truly felt like we’d stepped into a fairy tale for the afternoon.
Friends and family surrounded them the entire day, but it was each of their little girls who loved on Megan and Josh the most. I’m pretty sure they actually stole the show with their cuteness and loving hugs for each other. After all, they became sisters on Saturday!
Megan and Josh, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day. It was so beautiful and I hope you enjoy a look back on your first day as husband and wife!
Such a sweet first look!!
Every part of this house was gorgeous… the front where Megan and Josh had their first look, inside, and the backyard!
There really wasn’t a bad place for photos anywhere!
The bridesmaids were gorgeous, but these flower girls were precious!
I loved the navy and khakis… especially with all of the green as a backdrop!
Oh my gosh, how adorable is this family photo??
I say a prayer before every wedding… for the bride and groom, for my own energy to last the entire day, for my equipment to work and that God would allow me to capture sweet moments as the day unfolds. This photo of Megan coming down for the ceremony was one of those moments I prayed for! She was such a stunning bride and I love this image. It happened so quickly but now it’s frozen in time.
This little grove on the other side of the ceremony location was like a DREAM!!
I honestly could have stayed down here for ages…
Look at the smiles on their faces!! I love this :-)
Look how beautiful this backyard is!!
