Marc was my point of contact for their wedding photography. He was the one who took on the planning of the wedding like no ones business. Yes he did...this is becoming more and more common place, but really, why wouldn't it? Marc works as an Engineer for the government and Meghan is an Adjuster in the insurance industry. They are a classic case of opposites attract and two of the most genuine, good people I have ever met. He LOVES hockey, spending time with friends and (in his own words) being lazy. Meghan on the other hand enjoys art, gardening, cooking and taking on new challenges. They do have a joint enthusiasm and love of pizza. Here is the pic they used for their 'save the date' cards.
I asked them to put into words how they met. What I got back made me and choked while giggling on my late night snack. This is how seriously genuine these two are.
"Meghan and I met through my good friend Jon (bearded groomsmen) in February of 2010. Jon had a night out planned for his then girlfriend. Meghan and I met at his place for the pre-drink and really hit it off. We even shared our first kiss that night on the dance floor. Our first real date was a week later downtown for dinner and drinks. Capped off with a serious makeout session in my car on a secluded road near Hurdman bus station. On the night I proposed to her (April 2015), we re-lived our first date and took her to the exact same places I did on our first date - including the secluded road. Following a less intense make out session, I insisted we get out of the car, that's when I got down a one knee (with a pre-prepared note) and asked her to marry me."
