Picture of Love
Real estate agent, Meagan, met marketing agency owner, Lyle, on the social media dating app, Tinder, and this “swipe right” was meant to be. Lyle’s New Year’s Eve proposal was an artistic one. During the game winning Pictionary round, Lyle drew a diamond, a girl smiling and a boy kneeling. Meagan, his Pictionary partner, didn’t get it at first, even when he drew an arrow towards her. She burst into tears as he pulled a beautiful ring out of his pocket. Lyle had been carrying around his grandmother’s ring for months, waiting for just the right moment to propose! The couple knew they wanted a destination wedding and found an amazing AirBnB rental in Snowmass Village, Colorado. The entire bridal party and Lyle’s parents all stayed at the house where the wedding and reception were to be held. The groomsmen left the morning of the wedding for Lyle’s “Bachelor Brunch” while the ladies took charge of decorating the house and preparing for the wedding.
Meagan wore an elegant beige and cream gown by Tadashi Shoji from BHLDN and chose a natural, sans veil look. Her jewelry was a hand-tied pearl necklace and matching bracelet, and channel-set diamond and pearl drop earrings. The cake was selected from Whole Foods Bakery the day before the wedding, along with wedding flowers and wine for dinner. They are planning a fall honeymoon in Seattle.

There is one thing I think is critical to a memorable wedding: write (or at least contribute to writing) your own vows. Nobody knows your heart like you do, and the love you have will shine through your eyes when you’re saying what’s in your heart, to the love of your life, in your own words.
