“Phil and I met in Old City Philadelphia where we were working across the street from each other. We would cross paths every once in a while, and I started to develop a pretty significant crush. It took a little while but he finally asked me out on a date and the rest is history!” Real bride Megan was excited to share her and Phil’s story with us. There was an unforgettable engagement as well, while the couple was on a trip in Arizona. “On the last leg of the drive, Phil started to not feel well and we had to pull over so he could pull himself together. Little did I know, this was all nerves leading up to him asking the big question. We spent the entire day at the Grand Canyon, Phil attempted to have me walk into the canyon but I chickened out. In hindsight there were many times I made it very difficult for him to propose. Finally we found a nice little spot where we could look into the canyon and he pulled out the ring and I could barely answer the question I was so excited/shocked. I really had no idea. Next I insisted that we go to the restaurant in the park and get a glass of Champagne but all they had was beer so we both got a tall glass and enjoyed our moment.”
The couple married in Clarksburg Maryland on the most beautiful October day. Every detail was perfect from the historic chapel to the gorgeous flowers throughout.Megan wore our Lilia gown and looked absolutely beautiful! She purchased from Lovely bride. “I had a specific dress in mind before I stepped foot in store. We were getting married in a historic chapel and I pictured myself in all lace. I actually found a dress that I thought I loved at BHLDN but as soon as I put this beaded THEIA gown on, I knew without a doubt that this was my dress. I truly never felt more beautiful. I joked that I’d find reasons to wear the dress after the wedding, warning my husband that he’ll walk in one day and find me vacuuming in it.” We love these captured moments from the special day! Congrats to Megan and Phil!
