“I think I may have started walking around and advertising marriage to everyone at this point,” Megan beams as she looks at the images.
Her own wedding ceremony had been just two hours prior, and she and Alex were elated. This evening we’re all in the studio together, reviewing their wedding day photography for the first time. We’re getting into the reception photos now, and in these pictures Megan definitely looks as though she’s passionately selling something to the friends she’s speaking with.
Alex stands smiling contentedly beside her, and you can almost imagine hearing her say, “I’m just so happy! Oh my goodness, you guys just have to get married, too!” That’s Megan and Alex for you — always, always wanting to share their joy with everyone else around them. Their famous for it!
You may remember the story I told here (after their adorable engagement session at the State Botanic Gardens): My mom and Megan’s mom were childhood best friends. We were enchanted to see the collection of old snapshots Megan’s mom brought to the wedding: pictures of baby Megan smiling in my dad’s arms, of my four-year-old self grinning goofily alongside Megan’s parents. The experience of walking through this historic moment with Megan and Alex — and seeing our moms’ re-unite — has been sweetly emotional and poignant for me. Life revolves in truly beautiful ways. And the intersection of our lives with Megan and Alex has definitely spread their contagious joy to us!
Congratulations to you, Megan and Alex — and to both your lovely families as well. In fact, congrats to the whole world; it’s automatically a better place now that these two amazing people have joined forces!
