I met Megan and Karl through a bride from 2016, Leanne, who was in grad school with Megan. Megan and Karl are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet. I was lucky enough to capture their engagement session back in April of this year, and got to know them during that and leading up to their wedding day. I was a little bit worried because the morning of their wedding day there were a lot of storms in the area. It kept raining while I was with the ladies getting ready at the salon but luckily the rain broke upon arriving to Glen Magna Farms.
Glen Magna Farms is one of the most beautiful venues I have been to, there are gardens everywhere and the perfect place for a lovely and kind couple like Megan and Karl to get married. With the weather clearing, we knew we would be able to get a first look out by the gardens. Karl had such an awesome reaction to seeing Megan for the first time in her wedding dress, I just love how giddy and excited they were to see each other. It was such a perfect first look. These two were troopers, and still wanted to walk all around the grounds for their first look even though the ground was a little wet.
Once the ceremony started, I knew I was in for a treat. The justice of the peace was amazing, she was candid and making everyone laugh throughout the entire ceremony. There were so many moments where the bridesmaids, Megan and Karl, and all of the friends and family members were laughing so hard.
Once the reception got started we were treated to some funny and heartfelt speeches by Megan's dad, Karl's best man (and also his cousin) Calvin, and Megan's matron of honor Frances (a best friend that Megan has known all of her life). I loved hearing these speeches because it's so telling of how loved Megan and Karl are, and how important these relationships are. After everyone sat down for the meal, the real party got started. Their band Booty Vortex rocked the house with their funk covers. One of the most fun bands I've witnessed at a wedding to date. They had everyone on the dance floor to songs like "Brick House." It was such a fun ending to such a wonderful day. Megan and Karl are two of the nicest, kindest people you will ever meet, and I wish them nothing but happiness in the coming years together. Congratulations again Megan and Karl!! Thank you so very much for letting me capture your wedding day!
