Overbrook House Wedding | Megan & Chris
Overbrook House Wedding | Megan & Chris

Megan & Chris walked down the stairs to their ceremony arm in arm. I love when couples decide to walk in with each other, and not just because Peter and I did the same. After many years of being friends and being a couple, they wanted to be together as they walked into the beginning of a new chapter.

Whew. This was an emotional one. Seeing how “in it” the couple is — as well as the people surrounding them — makes the entire experience that much more meaningful.

Everyone stayed at Overbrook House for the week leading up to the wedding (and the week after too.) The morning of, Megan & Chris separated to get ready. The first time they would see each other was before the ceremony in their wedding attire. As she got ready, Megan read over her vows and couldn’t hold back the tears. Chris went off by himself and sat by the pool to go over his. Later, as I photographed Chris alone, the tears couldn’t be stopped. Crying isn’t something that comes naturally to everyone, but there’s just something about tears for me. They hold so much — sadness, of course, but also joy, and anticipation, and nervousness — and on occasions like weddings they’re often filled with thoughts of the past, the present and the future. Oh man… I just love ‘em. Tears are so complicated.

I digress.

A few things about their day:

  • Megan wore the same dress her grandmother (on her father’s side), and her mother wore as well. I love how the dress comes from both sides of her family, in a way. She had some lace added, which looked like it was part of the original dress.
  • All the flowers in the centerpieces were grown by Megan’s Mom. She also created the arrangements with help from the family and friends who were around at the house.
  • The cake was made by Megan’s cousin, Olivia, who was also part of the wedding party.
  • All the toasts were funny and heartfelt. During his, Chris’ Dad toasted with whisky he secretly saved for this moment that he acquired while Chris lived in Scotland. (Chris worked in a Bottle Shop – isn’t bottle shop so much nicer than liquor store or packy?)

Thank you to Megan & Chris for allowing us to be a part of their day. Thank you to Suzanne & Caleb for suggesting us!
