Megan & James’ wedding day started with friends and family, spontaneous dance parties, and laughter and cheers…and ended the exact same way. Every moment carried so much authenticity and love. With this bunch, every minute seemed picture worthy.
It’s easy to see why everyone was in love with Megan’s dress. She looked absolutely dazzling in her white ballgown with lace appliqués The deep V neckline and cathedral veil completed the bridal look – wow! Stunning! Meanwhile, we can’t forget to mention how handsome James looked in his navy and black tuxedo (one of my favorite color combos for grooms).
Megan was escorted down the aisle by her grandfather who squeezed her hand so tight just as he placed it in James’. They chose to wed at the Belltower Chapel & Garden in Fort Worth, Texas. And yes, they did ring the bell triumphantly after he kissed his gorgeous bride – in fact, they enjoyed it so much that might be might favorite photo of the whole collection (right after The Kiss, of course). The look on their faces showed pure elation!
Then they all entered the reception hall surrounded by stained glass and incredible sunlight. The hall features a large central dance floor, and this crew utilized every square inch of it as they partied the night away with The Royal Dukes band. Here’s a little peek…
