Marrying Into This Family Must Come With Work Boots And A Hardhat

garden fresh pink and peach bouquet

There is something to be said for hardworking people that know how create things with their own hands; the world could definitely use more of them. Well consider this wedding your wish granted! Not only was this couple a pair of the above mentioned people but it seems their families are too! That's right, from the gorgeous floral arch that the "I dos" were said under to the actual barn the reception was held in, this wedding was literally built from scratch! All we can say is that marrying into this family must come with work boots and a hardhat. 

Every last beautiful detail and moment was captured in the stunning photos by Mekina Saylor. You can see all her photos from this perfect day by visiting the full gallery here

Love Built By Hand

From Mekina Saylor: "And we'll build this love from the ground up For worse or for better And I will be all you need Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad We'll give all that we have And we'll build this love from the ground up From the ground up" Throughout Megan's wedding day the song "From the Ground Up" played in my head. 

Meg's sweet husband built the doors she walked through down the aisle to him. Her mother crafted the arch she and Scotty were married under and her precious daddy built the barn they partied in. With the help and support of friends, family and their florist, Perfectly Arranged Flowers everything looked flawless at the home where Megan grew up.

Enjoy Your Day Like It's Your Job!

From the Bride: The best advice that I could give any bride is to have fun and go with the flow! Going into a wedding, you are going in with the full intent that this is a "once in a lifetime" day!  Go in knowing that everything Will Not, I say Will Not be perfect, but in that light know that the day is centered around the love between you and your fiancé - and that is perfect! The more you go with the flow, the more you will enjoy the process and go into a marriage knowing your day couldn't have gotten any better! You had a dress, a ring, and your dream love! 

I say budget doesn't matter! Think about what you can afford and then go with the flow. There will always be a wedding that will have more, but do what you can afford and stay true to your style!
