Real Wedding Wednesday: Megan and Michael


With a ceremony set up like this, y’all KNOW this is about to be one stunning wedding, right?! 


Megan and Michael were married September 22, 2018 at Seven Springs in Manquin, VA. 


After getting ready, Megan and Michael met in the properties garden for this first look. “Having that last little bit of time together before the ceremony totally eased all of our nerves,” Megan recalled. 
The pair met one summer while working in the same place. They were long-distance while in college at UVA and Penn State but both moved to the Williamsburg area after graduation and Michael popped the question soon after! 

After photos, it was time for the ceremony!

Megan’s father walked her down the petal lined aisle. How sweet is her face as she looks at her husband to be?!

Megan’s grandpa officiated the ceremony and after they said their vows, they were pronounced man and wife!
They kept the decor simple for the reception to let the gorgeous florals be the star of the show. 
Anyone else drooling over this reception? 
How about now?! Their cake was a showstopper!
And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, they added a donut wall ?!
They danced the night away…
And headed off into their forever under a cloud of sparklers! Congratulations Megan and Michael!



From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail of the day? “My favorite detail of the day was probably the fun food we had at our reception. During the reception, Mosaic Catering passed around mini tacos and cheeseburgers on the dance floor. We also had a donut wall in addition to our cake. And of course, it wouldn’t be a party without Moscow mules. We had so much fun with our friends and family and the reception totally felt like “us.””
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “Prior to our wedding day, someone gave us the advice to slip away during the reception and take a walk just the two of us around the venue. That was probably my favorite part of the night. That really allowed us to take it all in and just be present in that moment. We were able to look back on the pavilion and see all of the people we love having so much fun.”
