Meagan is extroverted, Madi an introvert, but they like to think that they complement each other very well. They married in the middle of the pandemic, on a private farm with a handful of their favorite people. It was rustic, personal and a day filled with so much joy.
Tell us about the proposal.
Meagan: We had a double proposal. On our three-year anniversary together, we had a beautiful date day planned. After a morning coffee, we headed to Chesterman Beach, where Maegan asked a random family to take a picture of us. During that photo, on the beach, Meagan got down on one knee. What she didn’t know was that I had the same idea. I pulled out a ring and got down on one knee.
A total dream come true.
We were engaged for about a year and a half before our wedding date.
Tell us about planning your wedding.
Meagan: We chose to get married on Madi’s family farm so that we could make every touch our own.
We wanted a rustic farm vibe. Neither of us are formal type people; we wanted something personal and cute. We got a local food truck to cater our wedding, which made it really casual. Family and friends came together to help us design the venue too, so every touch was personal.
We designed our wedding venue with a lot of help from friends and family.
You ended up getting married through COVID. Tell us about that.
Madison & Meagan: It was certainly not something that we anticipated – hosting a wedding during a pandemic!
We decided to see each other for the first time walking the aisle. Meagan turned around to see Madi at the head of the aisle, and there wasn’t a dry eye at our ceremony. We wrote our own vows, and both of us included coffee in them. We never exaggerate when we say we loved coffee.
Our officiant, Dr. Joanna Sheppard, was a stand out vendor for us. She’s a proud member and advocate of the LGBTQ+ community and made our ceremony so joyous and memorable.
If we were going to offer any advice to other lovers planning their wedding day, it would be not to buy their first home two weeks before the wedding date! In all seriousness, continue to pursue your partner, and take time alone with one another.
We were absolutely blessed to be able to marry each other safely and proudly in love in front of all our closest friends and family.
We also thank the people who came before us, making it easier to live authentically in love.
Now that you are married, what does the union mean to you?
Madi: It means always being intentional with showing your love. Always pursuing your partner no matter how long you’ve been together. You always have a safe space to be yourself.
Meagan: In my vows, I vowed to understand that love is not meant to be perfect, but it is meant to be true. To me, that means that when our relationship and life challenges us, to push through together, holding hands, and always remember our ‘why.’
