Megan & Adam
Megan and Adam were the lucky winners of our 2016 Dream Wedding package, worth over $25,000. The happy couple planned a beautiful and personal celerbation, with the help of some amazing vendors. Megan tells the story of their special day…
After many months of planning, designing stationery, meeting vendors and gown fittings – months that were filled with decisions, fun, and at times stress – the long awaited day finally dawned!
After the girls and I were ready, we enjoyed taking photos before heading off to our venue. As our car pulled up in the driveway, it started to rain. But no way was a little bit of water going to ruin our day – besides, rain on your wedding day is meant to bring good luck! I walked down the aisle and saw my soon-to-be husband; my breath skipped when I saw his big smile and a tear sparkling in the corner of his eye.
Our ceremony was really special and fitted us perfectly. We included a handfasting ceremony, an ancient celtic tradition, and a nod to our ancestry. After saying our vows, we exchanged our beautiful rings, signed on the dotted line, then sealed the deal with a kiss! Mr & Mrs and we couldn’t stop smiling.
It was such a wonderful way to spend our 8th anniversary, surrounded by the love of our family and friends; sharing joy, laughter and some delicious food... and of course, cake! There was an extra special moment as we made our exit through an arch created by our family and friends, chanting ‘Ebsworth’ (our last name) and sharing hugs and kisses as we made our departure.
It really was the best day ever and we will forever cherish the memories created as well as the wishes and words of wisdom from our loved ones. We are so grateful and would like to say a huge thank you to Bride and Groom magazine for choosing us as the lucky couple, and to all of our amazing vendors for helping make our day truly special.
