I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Megan and Justin prior to their wedding day. However, that didn’t stop immediate welcome hugs when I walked in the door of Labish Gardens in Salem! We all had a blast getting to know each other throughout the day. We all felt like old friends by the end of it! It is hard not to enjoy the presence and energy this pair radiates. You could just sense how excited they were to get married and looked at each other with such love and admiration!
Sometimes social media is a blessing because I already felt like a member of the group as I have been following (not creepily..) many of the bridal party members for months! You never really know what to expect with a big bridal party. But because my couples are so awesome, they are surrounded by equally awesome people! This makes me hanging out with and directing 16+ close friends an absolute blast. I also loved the mixed blue dresses the bridesmaids wore! It was such a unique touch.
Their reception area was decorated in dusty blue accents and had lots of personal touches with pictures of the two of them throughout the venue for the guests to enjoy! These two were so excited to see their friends and family having a blast on the dance floor! Let me tell you, they did just that! After some oh so sweet vows and some celebratory shots with their bridal party and family, we all danced the night away! I should have known that after Megan and her dad’s sweet first look, their Father/Daughter dance would be equally as special! I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the place (at least not that I could see through my own tear-filled eyes….)!
We wrapped up the evening dancing in a flower field during golden hour followed by a sparkler exit into a limo! These two are so loved by their friends and family with a fabulous support system for their marriage and relationship! Enjoy this small glimpse into the fabulous Labish Gardens celebration of Mr. & Mrs. Gardner! The vendors are all listed at the bottom of the gallery!
