The first time I talked to Meghan on the phone, I knew we would get along well!
She shared about how important her wedding day felt to her, but it wasn’t one that she spent dreaming about as a little girl.
I have to say, for as much as I love weddings now, I definitely can relate to what she was feeling! How do you know what you want that day? Your taste changes, your priorities change over time… I mean if I’m being honest about my childhood “wedding dreams” I probably would have ended up looking like Hillary Duff in Cinderella Story and getting married to Chad Michael Murray.
(Morgan is way better than CMM, so I’m really happy that things work out better than we can dream up ;)).
The one thing that kept being the center of our conversation about the wedding day though was Mitchell. They met in high school and they’ve been smitten with each other pretty much ever since.
I laughed as she recounted how he proposed at Yosemite. Apparently he is can never pull off a surprise for her because he usually gets too excited to wait and tell her — but this time he got her good :)
… needless to say, hearing all about the two of them made me excited to meet them in real life.
I am happy to report that they’re even sweeter and more joyful in real life than they are “on paper”. From the beginning of our session these two killed it! When they’re together they literally kept help but smile and have fun with one another. There’s a comfort between them that only comes from having known each other for so long.
I was elated to bottle that up in photos for them :)
Our whole time was so special — from Meghan’s dress (check out that tie back!!), the sunlight, her dad’s pup photobombing, and the way that Mitchell just makes them both crack up! Absolute perfection!
In a little less than a year we’ll be right back on Meghan’s dad’s property to get these two married! I think you’ll see why I have no shortness of excitement to see what Celebrating Love by Marcie pulls off for such an incredible couple!
Enjoy a peek at one of my favorite fall engagement sessions to date!
