David & Megan

Submitted by Westley Leon Studios 

July 18th was a bit of a humid day but dang was it gorgeous. We started off at Aberdeen Manor in Valparaiso, Indiana and met Megan and her bridal party inside getting ready. Makeup by Keria (Chelsea) was applying airbrush makeup as Tiaras and Veils (Tiara) was beautifully styling the girls’ hair. While they’re busy getting pampered, my team set out to capture all of the details. My rule is if it looks like they paid for it, photograph it! Haha! 

Megan & David’s wedding was inspired by several things that brought them together. Their bonding over video games (they met at a GameStop), their love of Disney, and of course, Beauty and the Beast. The cake they had from Marilyn’s Bakery was unlike anything I have ever seen. Decorated with a lovely landscape, golden details, adorned with roses,  and topped with a golden plate featuring the Beauty and the Beast. 

As the ceremony started, David was anxious to see his beautiful bride. No first look, of course! As Megan rounded the corner, David waited to look until she was all the way at the end of the aisle. His look of loving shock took everyone back within the crowd. With eyes welling up in the joy that his best friend in the entire world was walking towards him, to be married.

Much like every wedding, once the ceremony is over it is time for portraits. The temperature that day wasn’t the worst I have ever experienced but it wasn’t all that forgiving either. So since it was such a warm day we figured, “Why not walk the entire bridal party next door and go get ourselves a fountain drink!?” Because when you’re thinking wedding portraits, I’m sure a gas station comes to mind? … Well, honestly? … It worked out way better than expected!”. Unique and fun photos not only make for great images but fun moments during and amazing stories later in life. 

With portraits all done, our bridal party along with our bride and groom, it was time for introductions, speeches, and one of my favorite parts of the night…DANCING! There are moments on a dance floor that happen and sometimes only for an instant (much like the rest of a wedding day). It could be the first dance, laughing with an old friend or an intimate glimpse of the newly married couple soaking it all in as if no one else is there. Megan & David had of all it.
