This amazing couple learned when they met that they had shared a few years in the same grade school, went to neighboring high schools and didn’t even know it! Dating during a pandemic lockdown actually lent the opportunity to build a strong and beautiful relationship and a proposal came in July 2020 when Robert proposed after a romantic boat ride followed by a special firework show just for Meg. Talk about making an engagement memory!
Both Meg and Robert love everything about Northern Michigan so it didn’t take them long to decide that would be where their wedding would take place. Their ceremony took place at the unique Cross in the Woods outdoor venue in Indian River, MI. They truly captured the “Up North” and casual feel and combined that with elegant and romantic touches that created a simply stunning celebration. We had the pleasure of working with the very talented planners from A Day in May Event Planning & Design, that helped ensure every detail was in place from beginning to end. With having to be apart during the pandemic, creating a wedding where all friends and family could be together again was their top priority. It was a joyful celebration - Meg’s sweet and warm-hearted personality and Robert’s outgoing and fun nature truly made them a dream couple to work with!
We always love the “behind the scenes” touches that couples plan to make their day that much more special. The guys had the wedding date on the underside of their jacket collars, Meg’s bouquet and the flower arrangements had tiny cardinals to honor her mother who had passed last year, and Robert’s wedding band was his father’s original band that he had engraved with their wedding date as well. Add to all that a boat ride in a fully restored '52 Chris Craft named after Meg’s grandmother – it was a magical day filled with so many special moments.
Meg and Robert, it was an honor to meet all of your wonderful friends and family and spend the day with you both, capturing your wedding day memories. You are a special couple and we wish you all the best!
