Meg and Nate are the kind of people that immediately put you at ease from the second you meet them. They have this relaxed way about them; you can tell they are each other’s home. They have built a wonderful life and little family for themselves with their pup, Waldo (check out his cheesin’ face at their engagement session). Their wedding day was the perfect celebration of that — they just wanted to enjoy the heck out of it.
We started the afternoon in the Hayloft Cottage where Meg was surrounded by the sweetest wedding party around, beautiful details (plus the bonus of great sandwiches). We laughed our way through the finishing touches as Meg donned a dress fit for a fairy queen and the loveliest of heirloom jewelry. Before the busy parts of the wedding day started, we took a moment with Meg’s parents; they are such extraordinary humans and so profoundly adore their daughter.
Going with the theme of taking a moment to yourselves before the day happens, Meg and Nate opted for a first look. From the second, they saw each other it was like any anxiety washed away; they could not stop smiling. That joy only went up from there as we were joined by their equally awesome wedding party and made our way over to their ceremony.
Surrounded by their family, friends, and a whole lot of lilacs (seriously, Ferncroft knocked their arbor out of the park), Meg and Nate exchanged vows and grinned their way through lovely poems by their favorite humans. They sealed it all with a kiss and a mazel tov before dancing their way back down the aisle and into their reception.
Amid equally lovely flowers, extraordinarily heartfelt toasts, and some of Buffalo’s best barbecue, and some stellar dance moves (seriously, the ground was shaking when Wannabe and Shout came on), we celebrated the heck out of two magnificent humans and this new chapter of their lives.
Meg and Nate – Congratulations you two! Thank you for being nothing but extraordinary (even when facing down blazing sun and mosquitos). You two are the very best!
