Margaret & Darrenn | A Video Game Themed Wedding

September 21, 2015

I told you guy’s that this wedding was one you wouldn’t want to miss! I am still pinching myself thinking, did this really happen? What a fantastic fun and love filled day we all had. Wedding days are always hectic, there is always something or someone missing and the truth is… it wouldn’t be a wedding day without a little hustle and last minute things coming up. Everyone played a huge part and did such an amazing job for Margaret & Darrenn’s big day. It truly was a day about love and family. As you can see below, this was not a traditional wedding, there were no mason jars or burlap and lace. She did not wear white. The theme was not enchanted or whimsical. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all of these styles and traditions, BUT! It’s nice to every once in a while get that ONE couple that stands out and just KNOCKS IT OUT OF THE PARK with being completely true to THEM. The theme was video games. She wore pink and black. They saw one another before their ceremony. There were lot’s of giggles during the ceremony (The best ceremony I’ve ever been to!). The key thing and most important meaning of this day was THEM. They were 100% true to themselves and to their families and friends. I can’t even begin to explain to you the love that exude from Margaret and Darrenn when they are around you. It’s like they have so much it just seeps out of them and is consumed by all that are near them. This couple in my eyes are the epitomy of a classic love story. Their love is like an old soul living the first day they met over and over. The sweetest thing was when Margaret handed me this notebook. I was like, ok what is this. She had told me they would be exchanging letters prior to seeing one another but I wasn’t expecting a notebook full of letters that she had written him through the year. HOW SWEET IS THAT!? Seeing their faces when they read the letters from  one another and hearing them say the exact same thing during reading them was remarkable. To top off this sweet couple and all of the wonderful things about them, Margaret’s grandparents anniversary is now their wedding anniversary. She wears her grandmothers ring also. When you think that a wedding day couldn’t get any more sentimental than that they do it AGAIN! As you walk into the reception hall you would have seen a projector screen and though to yourself ” Sweet photos of them from their journey this far”, NO! The projector was a surprise for her father during their dance. When Margaret was a baby her father recorded the two of them dancing. She played that very song for them to dance to and had the video playing during their dance. Not a dry eye was in that place let me tell you. I could go on and on about how wonderful and fun this couple and their families are but then we would be here all day long! I hope you enjoy my few favorites from their big day! To Margaret and Darrenn, THANK YOU! Thank you for inviting me and Audrey to spend the most wonderful day with you and for sharing your love, family, & friends with us. It was truly an amazing day and I can’t tell you what a blessing you both are to me. I wish you many many many years of good fortune and love. Also thanks for the Mario Brothers theme song that was stuck in my head for a week and three days LOL. I can’t wait to see you both soon and look forward to being apart of your journey and being able to share your story again. Until then my friends.
