Will + Megan: Classic Epping Forest Yacht Club Wedding

We met Megan in 2016 when she was a bridesmaid in our sweet couple Brett + Leigha’s wedding. So needless to say we were excited when she inquired with us! And then getting to know both her and Will during their engagement session (which was totally stunning and epic), we couldn’t have been more ecstatic for their Epping Forest Yacht Club Wedding.

We always love seeing how each couple incorporates personal stories and elements into their wedding day to make the day unique to them. Megan’s dad drove a 1967 Pontiac GTO when he was a teenager. For the past 15+ years, he has been slowly restoring it. Megan came to him and asked him if she and Will could use it as their getaway car, and he made sure that it was finished and beautiful in time for their wedding! Megan’s first look with her dad was the first time she saw it completely finished. We were able to use it in some of their portraits as well!

Scroll on to see more of their day!

Love these sweet mama moments!

We’ll never say no to a bridesmaid first look! So adorable!
Megan and Will exchanged gifts while they were getting ready. Will surprised her with 3 things, and each one was so thoughtful! Megan isn’t a big crier, but by the last gift she couldn’t hold it together anymore!
Then it was time for Megan’s first look with her dad.
Her dad specifically requested this photo – the first time she saw the car <3
How stunning are these ladies?! And that light was to die for! Epping Forest has so many beautiful beautiful backdrops with gorgeous lighting!
Another sweet mama moment!
The dapper men!
Time for the ceremony!
They grabbed their drinks and were ready to be introduced as Mr. and Mrs!
After dinner we snuck out to get a few extra portraits in the dreamy golden hour light!
Then it was time for their first dances!
The day was filled with sweet mama moments!
Party time!

Congratulations, Will + Megan!!
