Meghan and Chris met in June of 2016. Meghan had been on match.com on and off for years, just leaving her profile on there “just in case”. In early June, Meghan was frustrated with her current dating options so she logged onto her Match account. She looked at her matches and she was still disappointed. Then she discovered an option where you can view who has looked at your profile, even if they were not matched with your preferences. That’s when she saw Chris. She thought he was adorable and had a genuine smile. Plus, if he had looked at her profile then he must be somewhat interested in her. She emailed him and received a reply and they met for their first date the next week. Their love story ensued. The kiss where Meghan knew Chris would be her husband being in the rain just outside of the Historic Post Office where they would end up getting married a few years later!
After 6 months of dating, Chris found out that he was being transferred from Langley Air Force Base in Virginia to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. Meghan realized that she could stay in Virginia where she had a great career as a speech pathologist at the children’s hospital, owned her home, and was surrounded by family and friends OR she could take a risk and move with Chris to start their life together. The next 6 months were spent renovating Meghan’s house to get it ready to put on the market and Chris and Meghan moved to Illinois in July 2017. It wasn’t until a few months into planning their wedding that Meghan discovered the reason that Chris had viewed Meghan’s Match profile. Apparently he saw Meghan’s dog (Remy) in her profile picture and thought the dog was cute, so he clicked on the profile to look at the dog!!! Needless to say, Chris and Remy have a wonderful relationship now and Meghan is often the third wheel in their ever-growing love story! We are so excited to share a few favorites from this beautiful travel inspired military wedding.
Special thanks to all the AMAZING vendors that made this day so beautiful!
