Meggen & Ian knew each other for a while before the started dating, since Ian was her Tattoo Artist. While out one night while Meggen was on a date, they ran into each other. Ian basically told Meggen’s date that he was now dating her and took her by the hand, away from said guy. What a way to sweep a lady off her feet!
From there, they were inseparable. When they told everyone that they had decided to tie the knot, it was no surprise. It was also no shocker that they were going to have the event at their favorite bar, Dougherty’s Irish Pub. Their food is amazing, and guests were well-fed and served. The details and overall event was planned by the couple and little touches made it incredibly special.
It was a day full of surprises for everyone! Meggen, a talented Hairstylist, was surprised by her Indie Six (salon) Girls with matching shirts, personalized with everyone’s name, a hilarious slideshow of images, champagne, and a ’62 cherry red Cadillac convertible. Additionally, the Bridesmaids surprised Meggen with matching dresses – The Bride just wanted them to “look hot”. Done and done! Meggen’s dress was custom made by local designer, Bradi MacSleyne, complete with a touch of lace and an homage to Ms. Bettie Paige (“Something New). Her “Something Borrowed” was the Steve Madden, black suede wedges from one of her best friends. “Something Old” was her Great-Grandmother’s necklace worn on the wedding day’s of multiple women in her family, and her “Something Blue” was the little touch of satin ribbon on the garter. The Flower Girls were their three kids between them, all wearing matching dresses and high-top Cons.
The Bride walked in to guests ringing the “Irish Bells” and to the song, “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica. Their exit song, Slayer’s “Reign In Blood”, couldn’t have been more perfect either. The place was packed, the vows were personal and meaningful, and the party was hoppin’!
