On a hot summer day in June 2018 a lovley group of friends and family met at The Roxbury Latin school in Boston to share an incredible day with two amazing people...
There is so much more to the story. Dan and Megan came back to Dan's high school, a place so special that he wanted to share the best day of his life and start the next chapter with Megan. I had an amazing time with this group and couldn't have asked for a nicer couple to spend the day with.
Here are a few images from the day as well as a short video!
Tell us how you first met- who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details-
We met on an internet dating website... doesn't everybody? After a short digital courtship, we arranged to have drinks at a now-defunct establishment in Beverly Hills. The next thing we knew we were dating, moving in together, and, well, getting married.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did? etc-
Dan: for me, it was a gradual realization. Over the course of our early relationship, Megan proved time and again how loving, kind, thoughtful, and loyal she was, and I eventually realized she was someone I wanted to build a life with. Megan: there were so many moments when I knew, and they all built upon each other, but one sticks out in my mind. Only about 6 months into our relationship, I let Dan know that I had an offer for a job in Chicago - an opportunity that would be great for my career, but would require me to move to a new city. While I could tell that he was disappointed, he didn't hesitate to encourage me to take the job. He knew it would be the best thing for me, even though it would require us to be apart for a time. This selflessness and confidence in our relationship struck me, and although it was early on, I knew that I had found someone pretty incredible.
Tell us about the proposal. Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?
I didn't see it coming! Although I should have known, because Dan made a plan for us to go out to a nice dinner and got super dressed up...:) Right as we were walking out the door, he went to find something in the bedroom and came out with a valet ticket. He asked me if I knew what it was from (I had no idea) and proceeded to explain that it was the valet ticket from our first date. By the time he reached in his pocket to pull out the ring, I was still totally confused. I finally realized what was happening and (with the happiest tears in my eyes) said yes!
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other-
Dan: What I love most about Megan is her integrity; she's so rock-solid in all the best ways, and I can always rely on her for love, support, counsel, and delicious treats.
Megan: It's so hard to pick one thing! But, if I have to, I love Dan's resilience and positivity so much. He enjoys the small things in life, and helps me to do the same. And, when something doesn't work out as planned, he finds the positive angle and silver lining.
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does-
Dan: Megan always seems to fill up quickly from dinner, but a half-hour or so later, she seems to miraculously have room for dessert. Perhaps it's a metabolic gift.
Megan: You would never know it by looking at him, but Dan will eat an ENTIRE package of Oreos if the opportunity presents itself. Another reason that I knew he was the one :)
Besides getting married, what's the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
We're both looking forward to finally decompressing and partying it down with our guests!
