Colin and Megan Found the "Right One"

Colin and Megan

Colin is the kind of guy Megan wanted to marry.  He would get up earlier than he needed to in order to walk Megan to work, wanting to be sure she was safe.

Megan is the kind of gal Colin wanted to wed.  Not long after dating, they went camping.  On the way home, they felt tired and dirty and face miles of traffic.  When Colin looked at Megan, she had the biggest, most beautiful smile on her face -- a smile he wanted to see every day of his life.

The wedding took place at Megan's parent's home.  They put up two tents:  one of the deck for the ceremony and later the dancing.  One over the guests seating for the ceremony and later the reception area.

The men (for certainly that is what you call them when they wear kilts), toasted Colin for his good fortune.

The woman meanwhile were looking gorgeous.

Megan made her way down the stairs from where she had gotten ready, to the attention of the groomsmen.

Then, there was that magic moment, "The Reveal," when the two first saw each other.


Colin and Megan only had eyes for each other!

Wanting to match the wedding colors and theme, I wore blue and velvet.  It was all so exciting.  Neil Hubbard "piped" the wedding party in.  He always makes a wedding one to remember.  There is nothing like the sound of bagpipes.

 Then, it was time for Megan to enter with her father, Gary.

Maybe...the best kind of love is the kind where you can sit on a sofa together never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

It was a joyous moment when the marriage was made legal!  (I think it is like the second celebration of the day.  Always a happy time.)

Meanwhile, the guests were enjoying Grandma Jefferson's mix.  It was quite yummy.   Family traditions like this make the occasion even more memorable.

Then on the cake-cutting and dancing and having even more fun!  Danny Goldfarb of WaSound definitely kept things moving!!  (I had the good fortune to officiate for Danny and his wife, Lucia, soon after.)

And thanks to Holly Martinez of HM Events, everything went perfectly.  Holly is also a family friend which made things even more comfortable for Megan and Colin.
