Meghan and Tyler Become Husband and Wife at Last at MacGregor Downs Country Club in Cary

Meghan and Tyler are high school sweethearts who met in April 2004. Through all the rest of their educations - including different colleges - they stayed together and 8 ½ years later they finally became husband and wife. They wrote their own vows to each other and Meghan even mentioned in her vows how she never imagined when they met that they would some day marry. And yet, there they were, on a beautiful, sparkling autumn day, committing their lives to each other.

It was truly a beautiful day for the next step in this love story. They married at the very special MacGregor Downs Country Club, overseen by the Private Events Manager, Elizabeth Winfield. It was the first time I had worked with Elizabeth and my goodness, what a fun person she is! I know Meghan and Tyler must have had a blast working with her. 

MacGregor Downs Country Club offers some very attractive wedding packages and I can definitley recommend them highly. Not only do you have the beautiful greens as a backdrop, but inside the Club is the amazing main dining room, complete with an elaborate stone wall and fireplace that lends itself to any decorating theme you can imagine. Above the wood-lined walls are a gabled ceiling and large, wrought iron chandeliers, which all work together to create a very welcoming  atmosphere.

Meghan and Tyler chose to marry on the back patio beside the golfing greens and to be safe against the chilly weather, they set up a tent. Not just any tent, mind you, but a clear tent - the kind that does magical things with light. Those clear tents create a remarkable ambience for day or night weddings. Tyler works with Party Reflections, an excellent resource for creative, elegant wedding and event decorating needs, and they provided the tent and beautiful crystal chandeliers. Major elegance!

Look at how beautifully the tent caught the light for the wedding as Meghan came down the aisle with both her fathers

and then later for the reception. There is something really special about clear tents.

LOVE the chandeliers!

Meghan and Tyler had the most amazing decorations. Their style was “casual and laid-back” and everything they did showed this in spades. The colors were chocolate brown sprinkled with bright flowers, lime and dark green accents, and burlap used in the most creative ways;

and a beautiful, unique seating chart made of burlap and grass

Even the wedding cake (by Sweet Memories Bakery) had a burlap bow topper! 

Stylish moss-covered table numbers and ball decorations were strewn around the burlap table runners.

This was the Wedding Couple and Bridal Party table. Although my photo doesn’t do it justice, the tablecloth was chocolate brown and that clear tent with the sprawling greens behind it created a spectacular backdrop.

The Bridesmaids wore brown dresses of raw silk that they got to choose themselves to suit their body shapes (thoughtful Bride, Meghan). The Groomsmen wore khaki pants with dark brown sweaters and lime green ties and Tyler was perfect in his brown, three-piece suit. All the flowers were a riot of amazing autumn tones (created by Flowers by the Neuse).

The clear tent let in all that beautiful sunshine and, falling on Meghan’s veil, she was glowing.

Meghan and Tyler, I wish I could have stayed longer at your wedding celebration. Thank you for inviting me and allowing me to share the fun times with your family and friends, particularly this adorable little personality who was sitting across from me at dinner.

As you move into the next phase of your life together, I hope the years that come will bring you all the incredible joys a good marriage can provide.
