Engagement: Anthony proposed on July 18, 2015 on the beach in Ocean City, N.J.
Married: May 20, 2017
Venue: The Indian River Lifesaving Station in Rehoboth Beach, Del. “The beach is a special place for my husband and I because it is where we met and got engaged. I always dreamt about having a reception in the sand, but that limited our beach venue options quite a bit. The Indian River Lifesaving Station was the only venue we actually went to look at and right away we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. It has a unique history and we were able to customize it to be exactly what we wanted,” says Meghan.
Gown: The Calista dress by Theia purchased at Lovely Bride in New York City.
Bridesmaids’ dresses: “I let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses. I gave a few guidelines on color and length and they all picked dresses that ended up looking great together,” says the bride.
Groom and groomsmen’s suits: Bonobos
Invitations: Just Be. Studio, Egg Harbor, Township, N.J.
Music: “Our DJ, Hook Productions, was amazing. I did not want to leave the dance floor the entire night,” says Meghan.
First dance: “Without You” by Eddie Vedder. “Anthony’s brother (who was also his best man) played the guitar and sang the song for us,” says Meghan.
Wedding favors: “We had a caricature artist draw portraits. After we got engaged we had our caricature drawn that day, so we thought it would be a fun activity and favor for our guests.” (Caricatures by Courtney) The couple also had gourmet ice cream sandwiches from Weckerly’s Ice Cream in Philadelphia.
Honeymoon destination: St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
Favorite memory: “Having a “golden hour” photo shoot on the beach after dinner was an amazing way to sneak away and have some time for just the two of us. I remember walking down to the empty beach together (it was unusually windy and cold that day) and thinking how I’ve never been happier. As cliché as it sounds it really was the best day of our lives,” recalls the bride.
