Megan and Ryan | A classic emerald green Gettysburg Hotel Wedding

I feel like I should be starting off this blog post by singing “TO THE GROOM (to the groom to the groom to the groom)…TO THE BRIDE (to the bride to the briiiiiide)!” Now…if you don’t have a certain song from Hamilton stuck in your head, I’m not so sure if we can be friends anymore…this weekend was filled with spontaneous singalongs from a musical I’ve been dying to see, gorgeous emerald and white details & so, so much love!! 

How in the world do I even begin talking about these two?! For starters, they are two of the most genuine, kind and caring people that I have ever met, and you can SO tell that they are crazy in love! Megan & Ryan met a few years ago through a certain student run philanthropy at Penn State that all three of us hold near and dear to our hearts! If you haven’t heard me talk endlessly about THON, I would highly encourage you to give the cause a quick Internet stalk—it’s absolutely amazing and works to fight childhood cancer each and everyday!

Ryan was one of Megan’s captains back when she was in charge of the Hospitality committee. They kept their romance a secret for the most part during the year that they worked together, and soon after the 46 hour dance marathon wrapped, they announced that they were dating!

Maybe it’s the way they look at each other with such warmth, or maybe it was the world’s sweetest first look! …OR, maybe it was the the surprise delivery of chicken fingers during portraits {Pro-Tip: this is always a good idea}, the spontaneous Hamilton sing-alongs, and seeing so many familiar faces that I haven’t seen in a long time…whatever it was, I know their day is truly one that I know I will hold close to my heart for a long time! Ryan & Megan were married with all of their closest family and friends as witness in the church where Megan grew up! Their day was filled with so much love, joy & the perfect personal touches! I just loved how Megan incorporated her niece & nephew into almost every aspect of the day and know that they made so many sweet family memories that will be treasured for years to come! (I can’t wait for their family to tell the story of Owen’s sprint down the aisle and epic ring bearer pillow toss at his future wedding!!)

I had so much fun celebrating their life, love and this brand new & exciting chapter! While Megan & Ryan are soaking up the sun in Maui, I’m so excited to share a quick glimpse into their sweet and classic day in Gettysburg, PA!

A special thank you to the team that made it happen!
