It’s not often that I struggle to pull my words together – but I find myself there about these two. Meagan is one of the most beautiful souls you’ll ever be blessed to meet. Genuine, caring, hilarious, and uplifting are a few words that come to mind. I’ve been lucky enough to be friends with her for years, and all the while wondering what amazing man would get to grab her up and love her forever. Enter Aaron. He really is her perfect match, in every way. These two just exude love and joy and adventure, the kind that makes you want to pack up and go on their next one with them.
When Meagan asked me to help her plan and execute her wedding day, I knew this was going to be fun. And oh boy – was it! Meagan and Aaron knew exactly what their day was really about, the two of them becoming husband and wife. And like I always try to tell my brides – when that is your focus, almost always the details come together perfectly. We managed to avoid the rain (Narrowly. And I may or may not have stood in the back and prayed almost out loud “Jesus, give me five more minutes. Hold it off five more minutes” and He did!) and have the best dance party ever.
Blake was awesome! There is just no other way to describe it. She loves what she does and is passionate about making the bride’s planning easy and fun. When I first got engaged I immediately became overwhelmed and stressed about all the things that I had to do. I wouldn’t sleep at night because I was so anxious about getting married. I kept thinking I needed to get all of these things done TODAY or else a wedding won’t happen. I knew I needed help so I came to Blake and she quickly put my anxious feelings at ease. She took my ridiculous to-list and put it in a timeline and told me what was important to get done now and what can wait. When planning wedding you really don’t know what you are doing and you need someone like Blake to be your sounding board and just to put things in the right perspective.
The whole weekend of the wedding, she was there setting up the venue, running the rehearsal and sending me on my way down the aisle. She coordinated with my DJ and photographer to them know where and when they were needed. There are things that I will never know she did to make this day perfect and for that, I am forever thankful to all that she did!
