I Do! Meyer-Williams Wedding
I knew from the beginning our wedding was going to be magical, simply because the man I married can be described the same way. It didn’t matter where we said ‘I do,’ we knew it was going to be the best day of our lives. To make it even more special, we also were creating a family with my two children, Autumn and Kellen, and their excitement only added to ours.
Scott likes to tell me he knew from the very beginning I was the one. We had dated exactly one year to the date when he proposed; he took me to Castlewood State Park Oct. 17 for a hike. We found ‘our rock’ on the way up, where we could spend hours looking out at the river and cliffs in peace, and he told me he couldn’t imagine a future without ‘us.’ We celebrated afterward at the same table in Milagro where our first conversations took place.
When we moved into our first home together in Glendale, we realized there was no better setting to start our lives as a family. We wanted a private, intimate ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. The 36 guests included our family and closest friends, those who truly knew and loved the four of us. The ceremony had everyone in tears, we were told, thanks to its personal touches: our brother-in-law was the officiant, family and friends wrote remarks and recited a poem, and Scott and I wrote our own deeply personal and emotional vows. There was a perfectly short sprinkle of rain mixed with sunshine, and we were surrounded by the natural beauty of our backyard. Our garden sparkled with twinkle lights, blush buds hung in small glass vases from the trees and heart garland handmade by the kids was strung across our ‘wishing tree.’
It’s amazing how everything fell into place to complete the storybook evening. (Our wedding planner extraordinaire, Keby Enloe, deserves a lot of credit!) Every guest was in awe of our band, which kept us happy on the dance floor, and the flowers beautifully helped create the exact vision I had in my head while planning.
Our pictures are a true reflection of the love that was present in every single moment, and we continue to say it was the most perfect night. As the four of us sent a lantern into the night sky with a wish, we felt pure happiness and love. And that really is magical.
