Cou­ple Spot­light: Mea­gan & Nicholas 10.7.2018

Mea­gan 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!”

Wedding-Reception-Venue-Virginia-Beach-Lesner-Inn (8) 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? Wedding-Reception-Venue-Virginia-Beach-Lesner-Inn (80) 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! :)
