Were there any unique traditions that made the reception or ceremony memorable?
I believe that every child wants the support of their parents – boy, do these two have it! Both fathers were the officiants of their ceremony at St. Francis at the Point in Fairhope, Alabama, and both sets of parents prayed over their children at the altar. It was something I hadn’t seen before and really showed the love the families have for Megan and Eason, which I know they both treasure.
Did the weather cooperate on the wedding day?
Following the ceremony, we all headed to the gorgeous Steelwood Country Club. This is where we would take their portraits, something they had been looking forward to for quite some time. During their engagement session, we endured light rain the entire time. We thought that SURELY on the wedding day they would not have the same experience. Interestingly enough – we did! And just like that day, Megan and Eason did not let it phase them in the least. They still gleamed with joy and didn’t complain one bit.
Was the exit exciting and unique?
Megan and Eason are such special people. Originally, they planned to say one big goodbye to everyone and head off into the night. But, when Megan pulled her mom aside to give her a goodbye before their exit, the tears started flowing. Overcome with joy and gratitude, Megan and Eason decided that they needed to give everyone a personal goodbye instead. This sweet couple went around to everyone giving out hugs and heartfelt thank-you’s. They didn’t need some grand exit – they just wanted to say goodbye to their people, who mean so much to them. It was one of my absolute favorite exits I have seen yet.
