It may have taken Meagan and Ryan two additional months, plus three changes in venues to make their wedding work, but we can finally say- these two are MARRIED!!! The current pandemic forced these newlyweds to downsize their guest list and adapt more times than any bride & groom should have to, but their wedding was beautiful and intimate!
They got married at Harmony Baptist Church here in Florence, where Meagan's grandfather led a beautiful service! He taught the couple that it's the small, simple things that make a marriage work, including but not limited to- learning how each other likes their eggs cooked! :)
The newly-joined family enjoyed their first meal together and celebrated the new Mr. & Mrs. Ryan Shelley with some cake and ice cream!
Their wedding favors were especially fitting for the current times! They handed out bottles of hand sanitizer- encouraging everyone to
"Spread love, not germs"!
Not only did Meagan & Ryan get married during a global pandemic, but there was also Saharan dust in the air on their wedding day! I will say though- it made for a pretty golden haze in some of their photos! :)
Congratulations, Meagan and Ryan! I hope you both find complete happiness in the years to come and let this pandemic always be a reminder than nothing can stand in the way of true love! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day! It was so intimate and memorable! Best wishes to you both as you begin your next chapter together!!!
