Joy, laughter, donuts, and a groom in a kilt—Megan and Nathan’s wedding day was all the awesome things. As Megan told us, “Nathan and I wanted to throw a great party for our loved ones in a warm and inviting space. We went for a Classic Scottish Countryside theme that allowed the beauty and warmth of the amazing venue and Nate’s MacDonald tartan to shine through!” They achieved that and then some. The warmth in their photos is irresistible, as is our stunning bride bubbling over with elation in her Astrid & Mercedes Cherish gown!
How did your sweetie propose?
“Nathan proposed in Mer de Glace in Chamonix, France – He took me down 430 steps to the Glacier Caves and popped the question!”
How did you choose your gown?
“After a long search, I came to your flagship in Toronto where Vanessa suggested I try on Cherish. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one and never looked back!”
What’s your funniest wedding day memory?
“Nathan and I got way too excited about saying ‘I do’ and left the altar prematurely which resulted in much laughter and just a touch of embarrassment! That and we fed a baby cow! (How is that even real!?)”
What was your favorite wedding day moment?
“There are so many! One of the most amazing moments of the day was sharing our first meal as husband and wife together with those we love most in the world. There was so much love in the room, and it meant so much to us to have everyone together!”
What was your first dance song?
“Anywhere (acoustic) by Passenger”
Describe your wedding day in 5 words or less:
“I think our day was joy, love, laughter, romance and friendship personified!”
What was your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue?
“My grandmother’s ring was my something old, my dress was new, my aunt’s earrings were borrowed and my keds were my something blue!”
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“We spent our Honeymoon in Italy (Venice, Rome and the Amalfi Coast), Greece (Athens and Santorini), and Scotland!”
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
“Take a deep breath and appreciate the little moments throughout your special day, and soak up all the love in the room. Don’t sweat the small stuff, and make sure you take special moments with your partner.”
