I (Jen) was so incredible excited when Megan contacted us about filming her wedding. We filmed her sister Jenny’s wedding to Pete three years prior. It is always an honor when a family comes back to us for future weddings. I was even more excited to find out Megan and Chris were having their wedding in the backyard of Megan’s parents home in Columbus, Indiana.
The entire week leading up to the wedding I kept looking at the weather forecast. The percentages kept jumping from one extreme to another. Knowing how much Megan wanted this intimate backyard wedding at her childhood home I kept praying and doing my Anti-Rain dance. On the way we ran into a few spots of rain and we all kept looking at the radar all morning. They had a back up tent just in case but Megan really wanted to get married by the old tree with the rope swing. Luckily there was a break in the rain and everyone pitched in to move the chairs to the original ceremony spot.
The ceremony was so beautiful. The theme of the ceremony was about soul mates. I loved the reading about soul mates and how their officiant tied that theme into her message to Chris and Megan. It really is funny how just being in the right place at the right time can change your life forever. Had Chris not gone to visit his friend on that particular weekend and Megan hadn’t needed someone to sail with her their paths may have never crossed. I am so happy for Chris and Megan, that their paths crossed and they found each other. Just as the ceremony was wrapping up it starting raining again. Everyone ran to the reception tent to stay dry. Luckily the rain didn’t last long and the sun came out for the rest of the evening. It turned out to be an amazing evening. The Impala’s keep the dance floor rocking all evening.
Chris and Megan’s exit from the reception was a first for us, they left on a tandem bicycle! How cool is that? And yes they actually rode it to their hotel.
