Megan and Nate were married on a sunny day in May at the beautiful MacGregor Downs Country Club. When I met with them for the first time, they were just a few weeks out of getting engaged and were just starting the planning process. They both enjoyed the idea of a country club wedding so we began our search to find the perfect location. After our tour with MacGregor Downs, they knew that was their venue as they were drawn to the gorgeous outdoor grounds of the golf course filled with lots of green lawns, a pond, and the cutest little bridge. They loved that they would be able to have their outdoor ceremony on the tented patio, allowing their guests to enjoy the gorgeous scenery but still be covered in the event of any inclement weather. They would then move the party indoors to a banquet style, plated dinner and lots of fun and dancing.
So, let the planning begin!
One of my favorite things in discussing their vision and style with Megan and Nate was they were very open-minded to suggestions and they were also excited for bold pops of color within their design. We brought in the pops throughout their stationery, the bridesmaid’s dresses, the personal flowers, and the centerpieces. Megan was also excited for a little “sparkle”, which Nate agreed to as long as it wasn’t “too sparkly”!
MacGregor Downs provided two “getting ready” locations for the bridal party on the wedding day. The girls were upstairs in a private room overlooking the golf course while the guys were downstairs in the men’s locker room. Both locations allowed for privacy and easy access to the venue for photos and the start of the ceremony.
Megan and Nate decided to include a First Look into their timeline to have an intimate reveal together and spend some time alone before the excitement of their wedding day continued with all of their guests. This also allowed them to capture photos with their wedding party before the ceremony so they could enjoy some bonus time with their guests during cocktail hour.
Their ceremony was the perfect combination of traditional elements and personalized moments. They decided to include a unity sand box to represent coming together as husband and wife and a keepsake of their special day!
Megan and Nate got exactly what they envisioned with gorgeous photos throughout the golf course on their wedding day!
Once guests made their way inside, they were greeted with a plated dinner in the ballroom overlooking the venue’s club and greenways. Bold pops of color made its appearance throughout the table settings and personal touches were added around the room to share Megan and Nate’s love story.
It was such a joy to be a part of Megan and Nate’s beautiful wedding day. We loved seeing the next part of their love story begin!
