I almost always call my friend Julie as I drive home from wedding receptions. She lives in Boston and our schedules don’t often match up. But we just love to talk any moment we can, and it turns out that late Saturday nights is generally a great time for both of us. So she usually gets the rawest response to my work day – what was tough, what went well, what made me laugh, what made me cry. As soon as she asked me about Meagan and Murphy’s wedding, I just started gushing!! There were so many good things to say about how sincere, kind, and fun this couple and their families & friends are, I just went on and on until I realized I sounded like I was talking about an adolescent crushI hope these photos provide some glimpse into what an amazing day this was for these two extraordinary families that came together for a sacred ceremony and exuberant celebration. Enjoy!!!
Meagan and Murphy’s wedding was full of sentimental surprises, like the earrings Murph gave Meagan the morning of the wedding, or the beautiful blue brooch from Meagan’s grandmother that was fastened to her bouquet.
Meagan and Murphy have spent untold hours at the iconic Tombs bar in Georgetown. In fact, Meagan’s name is on the bar there! The guys had a chance to grab a few drinks there before heading to Dahlgreen Chapel.
Meanwhile, the day was planned so beautifully by Michele of Michele Hodges Events, Meagan had time to check in on her phone and kick off her shoes before the ceremony!
I loved this picture on the left, as Meagan hung on to her sister Corey for a final moment before the ceremony.
But you get the idea that when Corey is around, even if tears are shed, laughter is always soon to follow!!
Meagan’s brother walked her down the aisle. Love this look they are giving each other before Meagan turns to look at Murphy.
Sorry for the duplicate moment – I loved both angles so much!
Proud parents of the groom.
Meagan and her mom have such a beautiful bond and shared hug after hug just like this one throughout the day. I’m glad we got at least one.
Spontaneous kisses as they exited the chapel!!
Before heading into the epic party Meagan and Murph had planned at the Sequoia, we quickly stopped by the Waterfront for a few more photos.
They were hearing congratulations left and right!
