Megan and Andrew’s July 2011 wedding in the countryside of Indiana was wedding perfection. I knew from their engagement session, their Indiana wedding was going to be special. From tiny purple jars filled with fresh flowers, to wine bottles as seating placement every detail fit. Andrew’s mom, Jennifer, really put so much heart and soul into helping the couple and you’ll see in photos below how much work she did! Then Megan was a sight to see with her gorgeous curls, cathedral train, and strands of pearls for a classic yet modern bridal look. I could talk on and on about all the great moments but of course photos speak beyond any description I could give for this adorable couple’s big day.
Favorite moment of the day – Drew and I had a chance to sneak away and escape the chaos prior to the ceremony. It was the only time we got to truly be alone the entire evening. We were able to just relax and be our goofy selves for a few minutes. I don’t think I would have been nearly as calm in the time leading up to the ceremony had it not been for that.
First dance song – “You’ve Got a Friend” by James Taylor
Favorite wedding purchase - Space Capone (the band)! They put on an amazing performance (as always) and kept everyone dancing. Drew and I love their music and it was just awesome to see people having fun and enjoying it as much as we did, despite the fact that many of them didn’t know a single song.
Funniest moment - Hopefully she doesn’t read this, but it had to be my bridesmaid Brooke’s epic spill (pun intended). She had a beer for me in one hand and one of her own in the other. She tripped on something and literally flew through the air. She, and the drinks, landed hard on the dance floor. I felt bad, but couldn’t stop laughing!
Would you do anything different - No. Even though everything didn’t go exactly how I had planned, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night
Advice for future brides – A trustworthy wedding planner or an unbelievable mother-in-law (I, fortunately, have the latter) is a must. There is no way you can coordinate every aspect of the wedding on your own, nor would you want to! I would never have been able to relax and enjoy myself as much as I did that day had it not been for Jennifer. She literally thought of everything!
