We think Megan and Bryan struck a perfect balance between fun and sentiment on their wedding day, and honestly, that’s no surprise given who these two are. Both hold altruistic careers, using their talents to give back to the larger community on a daily basis. They are thoughtful, kind people and that came through in the choices they made in their wedding ceremony, from its location to their sentimental idea to seal letters to each other along with a special bottle of wine, in a box they nailed shut in front of all of their guests. It was evident that they’d put as much or more time and thought into the music and words that were shared at their ceremony as they did the flowers or the playlist for the band. And that thoughtfulness is something we can really get behind!
But these two also know how to have fun (their friends do too, as evidenced in the dance moves you will see!). They gave instruments to their guests and led everyone in a parade across UNC’s campus, past the Old Well, to their reception. They served D.C.’s frozen paletas: Pleasant Pops, and the bride danced in her Carolina blue high tops before guests “cheered” them out of Top of the Hill and onto Franklin Street. So yeah, they know how to strike a balance between reverence and party, and we think that’s quite cool!
M+B: we are honored that you included us in your special day, and thank you for reminding us to strike that balance! We know that when you open those letters on your 10th anniversary, you will have experienced tons of joy and fun-filled moments together. Thanks for letting us play a small part in that!
