cross creek wedding celebration: meg + grant

You can’t look at the two of them and not feel their joy. Separately they are so incredibly full of happiness, but together, it overflows from them. It’s in her smile and the way his eyes so sweetly scrunch when he sees her. It’s in the way they so easily laugh. And that day, as she came down the aisle on her mother’s arm, her smile grew a little bigger with every step she took. And his eyes scrunched a little tighter as she drew near. Full of joy, so much love, and the excitement that comes along with beginning the rest of forever . . . . .

Meg and Grant are married! The two of them had a such a lovely, lighthearted Cross Creek wedding celebration that we just adored being a part of! There was such a sweet sense of family about this day, from the fact their their kiddos served as Best Man and also Maid of Honor, to the family sand ceremony, to the heirloom handkerchief Meg carried with her down the aisle. Everything about this celebration exuded so much familial love that it was impossible not to smile as we documented it. Meg wore a stunning ball gown, which she paired with a sparkly pair of Kate Spades you know we LOVED, and a hair accessory truly fit for a princess!

Guests were treated to so many surprise treats during the reception, from a candy bar to a s’mores station, and all the usual fun activities that come along with a Cross Creek wedding like horseshoes and cornhole. We loved so many little details about this day, but our favorite obviously has to be their cake topper which was so perfect! At the end of the night, the newlyweds were surrounded by the friends and family on the dance floor as they shared one final song, and then headed out through a magical tunnel of sparklers.

Meg and Grant, thank you so much for sharing your love and light with us. We so enjoyed getting to be a part of your Cross Creek wedding celebration, and we hope you love these snaps of it every bit as much!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
