When I asked Megan how her and Suleiman first met, this is what she told me:
“Suleiman and I met in our high school marching band in 9th grade. We were not immediate fans of one another. I’m not entirely sure what our argument/disagreement was about, but my Mom distinctly remembers me not wanting to go with a group of my friends to Homecoming in 9th grade because he would be with them. However, in 11th grade, we were assigned a group project together and became friends and in the beginning of our senior year (September 16, 2004) we began dating. We’re still not entirely sure how this progressed. :)”
I think this is awesome- and to say things progressed pretty nicely would be an understatement.
Megan’s best friend Ashleigh was actually the first one that contacted me about these two and needing a wedding photographer and I was honored that a friend of theirs would be helping them in such a big way. As many of you may know- weddings can be stressful and any help you can get is always amazing. I heard back from Megan in no time and we became fast friends! Meeting these two at their engagement session was awesome and we had an amazing time and gorgeous weather too!
These two are extremely sweet, laid back, and funny. They didn’t let the fact that it was supposed to rain all day of their wedding ruin anything….and when Suleiman almost dropped the ring before putting it on Megan’s finger- they both just laughed. It’s things like this that make me adore these two. Their families and friends are truly one of a kind. Such open and warm hearts and it was a true pleasure being a part of their family for the day. Thank you all for such a wonderful day and a beautiful wedding.
Megan was so laid back and excited. Her family and friends were too which was so amazing!
Megan decided she wanted a special first look with her dad too. He was so proud and excited to see her…
and then came the time for her first look with her soon-to-be husband! No rain can stop us!
It was only misting a bit out, but the fog and the colors are to die for
My favorite. Ya’ll should make this a canvas!
I love that Megan had her friend, Bobby, on her bridesmaids side
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous
Her two maids of honors
So beautiful Megan. Inside and out, you are a wonderful person and you truly exuded beauty in all ways possible
Suleiman is a wonderful guy. You can tell by his family that they have fun and are pretty laid back.
His best man and brother, Carlin
Oh, these guys. They clean up so nicely! They were a ton of fun too!
I about fell on the ground laughing when they said they were doing this, but it’s a long-time running thing with them, so it had to be done!
The dresses and bouquets were different and I adore these types of details!
That is one proud father!
As Suleiman almost dropped the ring (and blamed it on Megan’s shaky hands)- all they could do was laugh!
The colors and florals were just perfect
Suleiman’s father is of Palestinian decent and he had a lot of family there. They danced two dances and they were so full of energy and happiness. It was so exciting to be a part of
Such an amazing night for an amazing couple, I adore these two so much and look forward to a great friendship with them!
