It was just like you read in fairytales: boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl… takes a little longer to comes around.
Ok, so maybe Megan and Dave’s love story isn’t an exact replica of Cinderella, but that’s the beauty of it, it’s their story, and because of that it’s wonderful. Dave fell quickly for Megan when they first met at Penn State. Megan loved spending time with the cute guy who was in the class below her, but she just wasn’t sure. She’d spend phone calls and visits home confiding in her sister, sharing her feelings and hopes and concerns. One day her sister just came out and said it, “You need to marry this boy!” Thankfully, Megan’s head caught up with her heart, and she saw in Dave everything she’d ever hoped for: a strong leader, a kind heart, and a best friend.
And this past weekend, we skipped ahead into a brand new chapter of their story. The day was a fairytale, and her prince just happened to be waiting at the end of that aisle. Megan truly looked like a princess as she walked down the aisle to say “I do” to her husband, and Dave looked like a prince charming if I’ve ever seen one. In front of all of their family and friends, Megan and Dave promised their love for life. I’d call it a happy ending, but I think we all know it’s really just the start.
Introducing: Mr. and Mrs. Manley
When Megan describes her dress to me, all she said was, “princess!” I think she got it right :)
Loved the beautiful necklaces Megan gifted to her bridesmaids.
And the gorgeous earrings that Dave gifted to Megan!
Megan!!! You are SO stunning, lady!
Megan read her note from her soon-to-be-husband…
…while Dave read his note from his soon-to-be-wife.
Megan and Dave chose not to have a first look, but still wanted the chance to pray together before the ceremony, so they held hands around the corner! So precious!
Love this moment!
Time to go get married!
Sealing the deal :)
We travelled over to Winston College, a gorgeous little college in the heart of Chambersburg, for portraits! It was perfect!
