Couple Spotlight: Meagan & Nicholas 10.7.2018Meagan and Nicholas sealed the deal with a kiss on October 7, 2018 at their home church in Virginia Beach surrounded by their most loved family and friends. They then came to Lesner Inn to celebrate and dance the night away. Although they had to reschedule their wedding from September due to Hurricane Florence, their day was nothing short of a fairy tale! We are SO grateful to have been a part of their big day and we just know you’ll love hearing all about their love story below!
How, when, & where did you meet? We met in high school my senior year. He was a junior and the new kid at school. The first time I talked to him was when we were in the halls and we were both wearing moccasins and I said, “Hey! Nice shoes!”
Dating can be awkward, do you have any funny stories from when you first started dating? On our first date, we went to the movies and he paid for a second movie in 3-D so we could stay longer, but I still had to end up leaving early.
Tell us your engagement story? When did it happen? Nicholas popped the question when we were in Smithfield by the water on November 5, 2017.
What made you pick Lesner Inn as your wedding venue? The view! It was absolutely beautiful.
What additional vendors did you choose for your wedding day, and why? I chose Incredible Edibles Bakery for the cake because we loved how we got different flavors for each tier without an extra charge since we had our reception at the Lesner. We also used Mary Pollock for our florist. She is a family friend and AMAZING!
What was your vision for your wedding day? Elegant and happy. And it totally was!
We loved your Pittsburgh Cookie Table! What inspired it? My family is from Pennsylvania and at all of their weddings up north they have cookie tables so we wanted to keep the tradition alive!
What were you most excited for your wedding day? Being with everyone I love!
How did you handle the stress of wedding planning? Were there any major hiccups along the way? It was a lot to handle but I got all the big things done early which helped a ton. Our wedding also had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence. But it worked out and the Lesner Inn and all of our vendors were able to reschedule only a few weeks out. It was amazing!
Do you have any advice for couples who are planning their weddings now? Enjoy it. It is one of the most exciting times ever so take it all in! Ask for help if you can not handle something! Look around a lot on your wedding day. There is so much you will miss! Also, ladies, put your toss garter on right before the toss so it is not sweaty! :)
From the very beginning of the planning process to the end of your wedding day, look around and take it all in. It is the most exciting day of your life!
