The day itself was a collection of unforgettable moments. A ‘first look’ allowed them to share a private and intimate moment before the ceremony, alleviating pre-wedding jitters and letting them spend more time with their guests. The personalized photo cards used as place cards, incorporating images of Megan, Jimmy, and their beloved dogs, brought a unique touch to the table settings.
