Photos from A Quail Lodge Wedding
Megan and Chad’s Quail Lodge wedding photos reflect a truly beautiful and wonderful day. What can I say about this wedding? It was full of joy, laughter, happiness, an epic dance party, tears during their vows, delicate & lovely flowers, a simple strappy wedding dress that showed off the bombshell that Megan is, a groom that could. not. stop. smiling (Chad, we all adore you). Every time I thought that this was clearly the kind of wedding that you’d remember because of the laughs and surprises, there was a moment that blew me away with its heart. Every time I stood there in awe of all the PRETTY of the day, I was reminded that the humans doing the celebrating (all of them) were the real deal and the real reason this day was the best.
Some random favorites: Their book themed stationary, the delicate blooms (Natasha Kolenko), a kick ass and kind AF videography team, Megan’s dress of course, Chad’s tunnel of love from the groomsmen before heading to the ceremony, their sweet non first look barn door shot when they hadn’t seen each other yet, the ladies checking out the guests arriving from the top floor, the sweetest little flower girl playing with her petals AND making it all the way down the aisle, tears tears tears during the ceremony (Chad, seeing Megan for the first time; Chad saying vows; Megan saying vows; wow their vows were good), Megan’s grandparents giving a speech during the ceremony with all of their tips for a good marriage, Chad’s wonderful sister Taylor giving the best ceremony (full of laughs and love), incredibly gorgeous spots for wedding party & couples photos after the ceremony, including my personal favorite hidden oak tree pathway with magical light, the bridge that made them think of Monet and was the real reason they booked the venue. I should probably stop here, but I don’t want to. Megan’s maids of honor singing a song with personal lyrics to Megan’s favorite artist and getting a standing ovation, Chad’s best man giving a speech that made everybody in the room tear up, including me, sobbing in the corner with love and happiness for them all, the sweetest first dance where they both couldn’t stop smiling, a dreamy, soft sunset spot outside where M&C talked in awe of the day so far, Chad’s Michael Jackson on the dance floor (amaze), Taylor’s epic rap battle style lipsyncing on the dance floor, and Megan’s laugh as friends spun her around on the dance floor.
I won’t forget this one. What a dream, you two. Congrats again! XO
