Aaron and Megen have been together for over 7 years. They first met at the University of Mount Union. Aaron is originally from Vancouver British Columbia and decided to stay in Ohio after college to continue their relationship. Aaron proposed on the captain’s deck of a cruise ship during a trip to Alaska. Both of them are avid lovers of 80’s music and claim to have terrible dance moves, but from what we saw at the wedding….they are actually great! This was actually showcased in a “dance off” between the Americans and the Canadians at the reception!
Aaron and Megen decided to do a “first look” and selected a location close to were we were planning to go for their formal portraits. It was a beautiful and private location with wild flowers and blue skies that almost look fake. Then we went to a nature center to capture the whole wedding party and more images of this sweet couple. From there we all went to the ceremony and reception location, Manakiki Golf Course. Everyone was able to cool off and relax a bit. Megen has a “first look” with her mother and then her dad as well. These are always such sweet moments and I can only imagine how I will feel when I see our sons on their wedding day!
The wedding ceremony was held at Manakiki in their tree covered pergola. It was so beautifully decorated by Blush Custom Weddings, with wispy greenery on the railings as you entered the space and then on the pergola too. A beautiful ceremony among the trees!
The reception was held in the Hanna mansion which was somewhat newly redecorated. The tables had stacks on books that came from Megen’s personal collection, topped with beautiful flowers and greenery. The tables were labeled as various “Chapter” headings of their relationship so guest could learn about the love story they created and will continue to grow. It was a beautiful day and we loved all the laughs and tears between the two of them! Congratulations Aaron and Megen on your beautiful Manakiki wedding!
