I met Megan years ago. First, she was a coworker with an incredible aesthetic sense who - graphically speaking - punched way above her weight. Since then, she's been a confidant, a colleague, a fellow warrior in the trenches of magazine production and, I'm proud to say, a friend. So when she asked us to shoot her wedding, we were there, no question.
There was so much about this wedding to love - the small town feel was inescapable in the best way. Megan and her bridesmaids got ready at a friend's farmhouse while Jason and his groomsmen prepped at the Escalon Christian Reformed Church. After a touching First Look at CRC, the entire bridal party met up in downtown Escalon to do portraits in Main Street Park while locals slowed their cars down and honked/waved as they passed. The day was filled with moments like that - overjoyed friends and family and community members who couldn't have been more thrilled to be there to witness this union.
And, of course, the traditional wedding details were completely on point - Megan's white lace dress, Jason's black tux and charcoal tie, the "M" monogrammed handkerchief and pastel rose bouquet and all the incredible handpainted signs and notes that you would expect from a ridiculously talented graphic designer's wedding. And that's not even mentioning the glowing twinkle light and tulle backdrop at their Escalon Community Center reception. The whole day was glowing and gorgeous.
Thank you, Megan and Jason, for asking us to capture your day! We wish you all the happiness as you head into your married lives together. And special thanks to Eric Bjerke, Sr. for second shooting the latter half of the reception after a 34-week-pregnant Dana tapped out after dinner.
