Megan and Joshua got married at The Castle Tea Room in Lawrence Kansas and they couldn’t have picked a better venue for their Harry Potter themed wedding. You might remember these two from their Lawrence KS Engagement Session. There were so many sweet moments throughout the day and I love that they included their dog Todd as the ring bearer. Thank You Megan and Joshua for choosing me to be your Lawrence KS Wedding Photographer. To get to know the couple better I asked Megan and Joshua to answer the following questions:.
TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU MET?
We met at KU during our Junior years. We had lived in the scholarship halls next door to each other for 2.5 years before Josh decided to come over and talk to me during one of our joint meals. His opening line was, "So, I hear you like video games?" From there we snapchatted for about two months before finally going on our first date to Les Mis in January, then to officially dating the first of February.
TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?
I had just got home from visiting my family over Spring Break, and was working to get voicemails from my grandmother (who had passed away) off of my cellphone. He came home from work and went into the bedroom to change. He came back out in a nice new pair of slacks and a button down shirt. First he made me stand up, then handed me a Marauder's Map from the Harry Potter books. He then handed me a wand and told me I needed to say the spell to get the map to work. At that point I was fairly certain he was taking me on a surprise trip to Harry Potter World, but I obliged. I tapped the map and said "I solemnly swear I am up to no good". As I finished, he got down on one knee, told me he loved me, and asked if I would marry him. Obviously, I said, yes!
ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Do what you want, not what everyone else wants! You like that color of bridesmaid dress? You get that color. You think icing on a cake is gross? GET A NAKED CAKE! Thankfully Josh and I were united in most decisions, so that part was easy. Ultimately, you two are the ones getting married and that's who's opinion counts. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you will be married to the love of your life, so don't stress, go with the flow and HAVE FUN!
