Richie and I met on Bumble- a dating app where the girl has to reach out to the guy first, which with our relationship makes a lot of sense. Two years later Richie proposed. I always said I’d prefer a courthouse wedding, but what I got was a courthouse proposal. Richie took me to the old courthouse downtown and got on bended knee. We didn’t have my courthouse wedding, we had something so much better!
Wedding Date: 4/25/20
“Megan let us have a 10 person ceremony in the middle of a pandemic so we could keep our original wedding date. The big party was pushed to August and we had the best time!”
Wedding Style: Romantic Rustic
Signature Drink: Meant to Tea – Sweet Tea Vodka and Lemonade
Why We Chose Running Horse Farm
After looking at countless barn venues, nothing seemed to have fit what we were looking for. I found Running Horse Farm on Facebook! They had hosted one wedding before I came to the barn and fell in love. The place was gorgeous and intimate. Everything we wanted for the day.
“I chose to do a first look with my best guy friends and with my dad. It was one of the best parts of the day.”

How We Felt on Our Big Day
“Relieved. It sounds terrible, but planning a wedding during a pandemic has not been easy. I felt 6 months of stress leave my body. It was liberating.”
Our Favorite Moment
Once the formalities were over and the dancing began!
With Covid, you have to sacrifice so many things about your celebration, cancelled bachelorette parties, Grandma not being able to attend, the list was endless. Through the stress and tears, I was able to look around and realize I had an army of support behind me and the best husband standing next to me. We will have a crazy story to tell years down the road, but Covid helped me see that while the wedding is important the marriage is why we were doing this.
