Four words that describe your Wedding?
“Joyous, Beautiful, Fun & Outside”
First Dance Song and how did you select it?
“Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – This is a song we love and dance together around the house to. We have felt for a long time that we were each other’s homes.”
Most memorable part of your Wedding Day?
Meaghan: “Walking down the aisle and getting to Mike, who took hold of my hands immediately. I have never been happier.”
Mike: “Exchanging vows with Meaghan. Standing in front of our family and friends on the beautiful portico, flanked by an American flag on the left and the Washington Monument to the right, we made our lifelong commitments to each other.”
Biggest Surprise of the Wedding?
“We knew our band, London Bridge, would be amazing – we hired them all the way from Philly – but they were beyond amazing! They started playing during dinner which was really fun and enjoyable. And they kept us dancing outside under the portico until the last second of the reception!”
