From the couple:We met online and started dating 6 years ago. Matt proposed in DC where we live by the tidal basin at sunset. Megan’s wedding bands were both made from family heirlooms. We wanted our wedding to be simple, beautiful and timeless. We kept our design clear and natural, with a few pops of color. We wanted the ecolors to pop in our Cocoanut Grove wedding photos. Bridesmaids wore dusty blue dresses in different styles. Groom and groomsmen wore navy blue suits with white shirts, blue ties with white dots and the groom’s signature pocket square touch. The groom also wore a matching vest. My dress was classic with pockets and a fun button detail down the back. My bouquet was primarily white with touches of pink floral and greenery. I wanted it to be bold against my dress, but not overpowering. The bridesmaids had a smaller version of mine, but without the pops of pink. We loved the colors in our Cocoanut Grove Wedding Photos. Our ceremony was unique in that we drafted our own script and vows. A friend officiated. We stood underneath an arch decorated with greenery and floral, with an ocean backdrop. Cocoanut Grove wedding photos. Our processional songs were “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles, Pachebel’s Canon in D, and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring. The recessional Kemp’s Jig. Our reception took place in a ballroom at the same venue as our ceremony. The centerpieces were primarily floral, similar to the bouquet, and the tables featured a lot of candles. We had alternating high and low versions of each centerpiece. During cocktail hour we had signature “his” and “hers” cocktails and a photo booth with a prop from our venue. We love that the fun shines through in our Cocoanut Grove wedding photos. Our first dance song was “Forever Like That” by Ben Rector.
