Ooooh these two!???? To know them is to love them and that’s why we are SO excited to introduce you to Megan and Connor today!!
Before we dive right into the wedding, let’s press rewind and reminisce on their engagement session in Washington DC! We ventured down to DC for this session and had the time of our life! Not only because we love to travel, but because spending quality time with Megan and Connor simply made us fall in love with them even more!! Not only are they clearly soulmates, but they share a passion for being kind-hearted. The smiles, the laugh, and the sweet way they spread happiness to everyone around them is contagious!!
After our time with them, we were counting down the days until the wedding. We were genuinely so excited to celebrate with Megan and Connor! We knocked out most of the planning through emails, phone calls and FaceTime dates since they live in DC! As the weeks passed, we were more than ready for the wedding and counting down the days until we could hug them again! (Shoutout to Megan here…she is a natural at planning and was on top of the entire process! She is SO GOOD! #dreamclient)
The weather, the flowers, the dress…every single detail fell into place perfectly for these two!! The ceremony was one of the most memorable, beautiful celebration. Not only was Sts. Mary and John Catholic Church in Evansville, Indiana absolutely stunning, but hearing the vows, feeling the love and watching a new marriage begin was enough to make me cry all day!! They did it!!! Megan and Connor are married!!!! WOO!!
We cannot wait another second to share these images..those smiles say it all!! It was sincerely the best day ever! Congratulations to the newlyweds!! We love you two so, so much!!♥️
It was a sunny Thursday afternoon, around 3pm, red hats and purple shirts filled the room. Sounds like the most romantic first date you’ve ever been on, right? Connor and I both worked crazy jobs when we first met, and an early afternoon dinner was all we could fit on the books (I know, you’re thinking we are the coolest humans on the planet right now). I was right in the middle of harvest and Connor was juggling his day job with coaching high school girls soccer at my alma mater, Evansville Memorial. We met through online dating, but the only reason we both admitted our initial attraction to each other was because we both had profile pictures of our pups. We planned to meet for pizza on our short breaks between shifts, and he agreed to pick me up at my parents house, because what twenty something year old doesn’t want free rent? I watched this white Ford Fusion pull in and out stepped this blonde haired, blue eyed goober in high-water jeans, button-down shirt, and boat shoes. He was just about the cutest thing I’d ever seen. First dates are always awkward, but this one was different. I was relaxed and we started poking fun each other with jokes as soon as we got our appetizers. I shortly knew this was the man I was going to marry….it only took him two years to catch up. This man has surprised me in every way possible. Through endless moves (Indiana to Maryland, and then all over the D.C. metro area) he has remained constant and so loving. We are so blessed and thrilled to be one of Tinder’s success stories, apparently they don’t all end this well but we’re excited to continue ours!
“I had plans to go out with my girlfriend Jeannie that evening, it was Taco Tuesday, so where else would we be besides a Mexican restaurant downing margs? Connor and I had just recently adopted two horses, and Jeannie kept bugging me to stop by the barn to see them. I had already had a long day and all I wanted was some tacos and tequila, so we decided to stop by the barn another day. As we’re sitting there, margarita in hand, I get a call that one of my horses had gone down and we weren’t sure what was going on. As a horse person, I was asking every sort of question, trying to avoid another trip to the barn. Would the horse be fine until morning, is he bleeding, is anything broken, etc, etc, etc? Panic quickly set in as the narrative of the horse’s condition strangely got worse each time I decided it wasn’t urgent enough for me to leave dinner and head to the barn. I called Connor and he convinced me I should head to the barn to check on things. As I arrived, I noticed the barn lights were off, but I was so worried about the horse that I couldn’t spare any additional thoughts on it. I ran into the barn and turned all the lights on, and there stood Connor, in a suit, holding a dozen roses, and our two dogs at his side. First off, I’m thinking, is those horse ok? Second, why are you in the barn wearing a suit? He starts to laugh. Panic brain is a thing, because I had absolutely no idea what was happening until he knelt down on one knee. He began to talk about our life together, how in two years we’ve made it through more than most married couples of ten, and that he couldn’t imagine spending his life with anyone but me. He continued on, our two pups dutifully sitting right next to him, and then proceeded to pull out the most beautiful ring I’d ever seen. I melted, obviously said yes, and then continued to take some awkward engagement photos that Connor will never let me live down.” -Megan
Connor can get a sunburn on a cloudy day in less than twenty minutes and Megan can turn a perfectly clean kitchen into a warzone after baking just a dozen cookies.
