Meagan was one of my easiest brides. Calm and relaxed, I barely heard a peep from her during her entire planning process. Although Meagan is a bit low maintenance, her wedding was a gorgeous combination of thoughtful details in yellow and gray.

How Meagan and Alex met, however, is one of my favorite stories. After going out with friends to a “going away” party (celebrating Alex’s move to Chiropractic school in Missouri), Alex asked Meagan to pretend to be his girlfriend so another girl would stop hitting on him. Meagan fell for it (:)) and they quickly became attached. After spending 2 weeks together, Alex headed off to Missouri and Meagan found every reason possible to visit him. After logging thousands of miles in plane tickets and substantially more texts and phone calls, Alex and Meagan were finally getting married!

Now for those who know me, you know how much I’m a big believer in fate and things that are meant to be. So when Meagan, who lost her brother just 3 years ago, and Alex, who lost his mother 5 years ago, mentioned that they felt her brother and his mom ultimately had a big part in bringing them together, I knew I would just adore working with them!

Their ultimate goal for this garden-inspired wedding was to celebrate their love with friends and family. They wanted everyone who was closest with them there – and their guests were one of their top priorities. It made for such a beautiful day!

Meagan took these super cute gray Target flats and adorned them with gold turtle brooches in remembrance of her brother, Sean.

A seemingly lost art, Meagan and the girls got ready at Meagan’s house in Titusville.

Meagan’s mom hand-picked the bridesmaid wild-flower bouquets

Breaking from the norm, both Meagan and Alex included a Man of Honor and Grooms-girl in to their bridal parties!

Their ceremony was held under a canopy of Spanish Moss

Love….

Little turtle details were a sweet nod to her brother
