These lovebirds tied the knot in Provo, the town where they both grew up in and met each other, and they kept things simple and sweet with a temple ceremony followed by a backyard reception at a house just up the hill. Sounds idyllic, right? Jacquelyn Hayward did a fabulous job capturing every picturesque moment, so get ready to gush over the full gallery right here!
From Jacquelyn Hayward… Megan and Scott were married on a beautiful April morning in Provo – the town where they grew up, went to high school, and met one another. The sun was shy and drifted behind rain clouds that sprinkled softly here and there throughout the day. Megan’s dress was handmade by Scott’s grandmother. Megan’s gown of silk was fit it to her frame piece-by-piece, then adorned with beading. Their reception was held at her Aunt’s house (who is also the mother of Scott’s best friend!) just up the hill from the temple. The reception decorations were simple and understated, allowing the Spring blooms to steal the show. Gourmet pizza from a food truck was served, and harp music danced it’s tune around the backyard where friends and family gathered to support their marriage. It was such a lovely day!
From the beautiful bride…Scott and I began a friendship in high school that had something undeniably special about it. At first it was strictly friendly. No hand-holding or romance began for a long while. After high school he went away for two years to serve in Germany as a missionary. I went to school and had my own missionary experience in Argentina. All the while we kept in touch through letters. When he finally popped the question I cried, kissed him sweetly, and said, “Of course.” We wanted our wedding to be simple and beautiful. We arranged for an outdoor reception with a gorgeous view of the valley and Utah lake. It would be a white wedding, with splashes of color from the flowers and a blush fabric wall. What we wanted most for our wedding day was the focus to be placed on our union and families coming together. We still feel so uplifted and happy and supported by our loved ones.
