Nick and I met at a 4th of July party. I asked him to make me a hot dog, and the rest is history! After many fun-filled years, Nick finally popped the question. We were snorkeling (one of our favorite activities), and Nick told me he wanted to show me a “crab.” Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I have seen thousands of crabs, so I wasn’t too interested, but followed along anyway. I looked to where he was pointing, but couldn’t see anything (since there wasn’t anything there, he was just trying to make his move), so I decided to head into shore. As I was snorkeling into shore, I felt a little tug on my fin. I turned around, and to my surprise, Nick was holding a beautiful diamond ring. Long story short, he proposed underwater. It was absolutely perfect!
Snohomish has an abundance of stunning wedding venues, and since I grew up there, I knew right away that was where I wanted to get married. We fell in love with Swan’s Trail Farm immediately – it was the first, and only venue we looked at. Everything else fell into place quickly after that. Nick let me take care of the majority of the planning, which definitely worked out in our favor! I had a clear vision of what I wanted the wedding to look like, but since I’m not a very crafty person, I turned to Etsy and other online vendors to take care of all my detailing needs!
It turned out perfectly. It was such an amazing day, that it would be impossible to narrow the day down to a few favorite memories. Nick and I seeing each other for the first time was definitely a highlight – I couldn’t believe how nervous I felt beforehand. We also loved spending time with our families and friends.
It was so crazy to have all the people we care about in the same place at the same time. During the year and a half we were engaged and planning, we felt like the wedding couldn’t get here fast enough. Looking back, it’s unbelievable how quickly our wedding day and the events surrounding it went by, but it was definitely the BEST DAY EVER.
Special thanks to everyone that worked hard on Megan + Nick’s wedding day!
