On November 7, 2015 Megan + Dan gathered with their closest of family + friends for their very intimate Harkness Park wedding in Waterford, CT. The day was anything but traditional and everything about love.
Megan + Dan chose to forgo the superstitious tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding by getting ready together at their home with their two cats, and the friends they had chosen to stand with them at the alter, Kathy and Billy. It was so great to get to be with the couple without any of the stress or nerves that usually hang around at this part of the wedding day. Instead Megan had her hair and makeup done and did some writing while Dan was right there with her enjoying time with both of his best friends by his side.
When it came time to go to the ceremony the couple rode together to their Harkness Park wedding where there were some friends and family already gathered and they welcomed the ones that came after them. The small amphitheater where the ceremony took place was a perfect spot, the Harkness Park wedding overlooking the ocean and fields. A violin was played by Kathy to welcome the guests to sit and as Megan + Dan walked down the aisle together. There were some tears of joy, some laughter and lots and lots of emotion when the two read their vows to each other. Dan's proposal to Meg had been extremely romantic and full of heartfelt words of love and the vows were no different. Their support of one another seemed to be a theme along with how happy they have made each other day after day. When the ceremony was over the guests were passed champagne, and Megan + Dan were toasted to and cheers'd. This couple has an amazing group of family and friends who were very excited to share in this special day with them.
Megan + Dan are very excitedly expecting their first child early next year, and it is quite honestly hard to imagine either of them any happier than they already are. But I hear that is what happens when you become parents, your heart gets even bigger. Meg + Dan I have had the honor to know you for a while now and watch your adventure. I love what is coming for you and can't wait to see it stay Forever Like This. xoxoxo
