Three years ago today, I went on a blind date, hoping the guy wouldn’t ruin my bucket list @garthbrooks concert.
Now that guy is my husband and I know that every experience, bucket list or daily life, is infinitely better with him there. ❤️
(If you’re new to my blog, there’s a link in my profile to the blog post about our first date. ☺️)

Let's talk about real life, friends! If you've been following along for a while you know that Brian and I have built our entire business by working from our home. We started small and what used to be our brand new townhome is now a full blown floral design studio complete with a 100 square foot walk in cooler. ⠀

Has this been easy? No. Do we sometimes feel like we never leave work? Yes. But, we have such a passion for what we are doing and huge dreams for our future. We don't always plan on working from our current home. In fact, we have been searching for the perfect piece of land for us to continue growing Meristem Floral. Big things are in store for 2018!⠀

What are some of the goals that you have been working towards!?! What do you spend time daydreaming about?!⠀

And here’s the best part, I’m officially married to my BEST FRIEND! 👏🏼🙌🏼👌🏼I love you so much Evan! This past weekend was truly #MegansHappilyEvanAfter #BelieveintheBourbon

Nothing has made me more excited about moving Petal to North Carolina than knowing that @kelsey.schwenk and @nate.schwenk will be there! They make wedding day photo magic and I can’t wait to team up with them more in the future! Tia + Aaron ftw.

Take You Back Tuesday!! Congratulations again Mesha and Alex Gardner! It was our pleasure to plan and execute such a beautiful wedding day.
5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Choosing SDS Events as our wedding planner/coordinator was the best decision ever! I had meetings with other wedding planners and I was unsure of which company to choose until I met with Shawon; I knew instantly that we would work well together! I was convinced that planning a wedding in Charlotte, NC while living in Houston, TX would be difficult, expensive, and stressful and it was none of the above. Shawon made certain that my visits to Charlotte were productive, efficient, and stress-free. I had a situation with a Houston-area makeup artist that cancelled on me at the last minute, right before our engagement photos. Shawon not only submitted a review to the MUA on my behalf, she also helped me locate another MUA in time for our photo session. That is just one example of the many times SDS Events provided exceptional service and support. Throughout the planning process, Shawon would check on me regularly to make certain that I was following "the checklist", but also to remind me not to get overwhelmed. She was the perfect balance for my Type A personality. I not only gained an amazing event planning team, but I also gained a therapist, big sister, and friend. Even the wedding rehearsal was a home run. It was over in 53 minutes flat. And we ran through the ceremony twice! I was confident that the wedding day schedule would be executed flawlessly, and I was correct! I called Shawon the morning after and expressed our gratitude; I honestly don’t know how we could have pulled the day without her. Almost three weeks later I am still receiving compliments on our wedding experience. I have recommended SDS Events at least three times since then. Trust me, choose them and you will not be disappointed!

Classic romance 💕💗💕

Gotta love Fort Fisher sunsets. Fun fact...that actually isn’t the sun. Those thick clouds were blocking the sun so I improvised and created my own with a portable studio light and orange modifier. The result is warm and romantic, and it sets more of a mood than just boring old flat light. Head on over to the blog to see the rest of the images from this session! Link in profile.

Sneak peek #2 to share today! Lindsay & Danny were married at @whiteheadmanor and it was absolutely perfect <3 #charlotteweddings #charlotteweddingphotographer #ncbride

Out of all the things I did to prepare for our wedding, my wedding dress was my favorite decision!! The lace, the chiffon skirt and the EPIC sleeves won us over in a heartbeat! In fact, the minute I put this gown on, I knew it was the one. A super big thank you to the ladies at @lanaaddisonbridal for helping me find the PERFECT gown and to the best photographer who captured our moments every step of the way! Thank you @grahamterhune for the most amazing bridal portrait session ever! I look forward to sharing more of these soon 😊 Hair and Makeup: the magnificent @teighla_norris Florals: the wonderful @wyldeflowers
