And just like that, we got married!!

We are still riding the "high" from the most amazing wedding weekend EVER...and while I'm not sure I can sum it up in words, lets just say it was PERFECT in every way! 

First Kiss.  It's official.

Scott and I got married in the beautiful harbor town of St. Joseph, MI (where we met 3 years ago).  For those of you who have never experienced the idyllic beauty that is Southwest Michigan, you must.  Miles and miles of pristine beach, quaint harbor towns with cobblestone streets, berry picking, bike riding, sunset watching, amazing people and oh, I could go on and on.  It's a living Norman Rockwell painting.

First dance to Van Morrison's Into the Mystic.  We rocked it.

This weekend, our family and friends took St. Joe by storm.  We rented an AMAZING beach house where 12 of our nearest and dearest stayed which became the "home base" for the festivities - which included: 
  1. A crazy night of karaoke to kick off the festivities - complete with a rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Scott and I (literally, all the locals in the bar were like; "who ARE you people and WHERE is the wedding!?!  WE WANNA GO!!")
  2. Beach days (and beach nights)
  3. Boat rides
  4. The most amazing rehearsal dinner (Thank you Sue and Ed!!)
  5. After parties complete with a professional DJ - our awesome friend, DJ Dav! (I think there were at least 5 of these, spread out over 3 days).
  6. The wedding itself (DUH!)
  7. A full spread, complimentary Sunday Brunch to give final hugs, thank yous, and goodbyes.
Everything was perfect.  Saturday morning it was raining - and by raining I mean POURING- and this typically chilled-out bride lost her cool in a big way.  However, by 11am, the skies cleared and the day was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.  The ceremony took place under a pavilion at the harbor mouth and get this - as we exchanged our vows a sailboat sailed right behind us!! How auspicious is THAT!  Things like this happened all over the place throughout the entire weekend.

The reception was a hop skip and a jump away at the beautiful Shadowland Ballroom where we had the BIGGEST party that place had ever seen (they told us so).  The Dave Ivaz Orchestra rocked the house so much that when the night ended, we had 200 wedding guests chanting "ONE MORE SONG!" over and over until they caved and played an acoustic version of "Wonderful Tonight".  We then had not one, but TWO after parties...finally finishing at the beautiful beach house complete with DJ Dav spinnin' records and a full moon swim in the lake. 

Honestly, there is NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING we would change about the whole weekend.  It was so full of love and fun, I'm surprised we didn't burst!

So we did it friends!  We are married!  And you have never met two people more excited to be so than us!  We are so lucky and blessed to be surrounded by the most amazing friends and family and the Universe just continued to provide for us in the most spectacular ways throughout the weekend.  A special shout out to my parents, who made this wonderful weekend possible.  Honestly, we are *STILL* getting calls from friends and family saying it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

The fun is not over though!  Now it's time to really put our noses to the grindstone and get our boat ready to sail off into the sunset!

A gift from one of my best friends.  Our Sunday Brunch attire.  You'd never guess we were out till 5am and up at 8am, would you?

LOVE,
Brittany and Scott Meyers

  6. The only bummer about your wedding is that it's the starting point of your departure (for those of us who are going to miss you and think you're totally nuts).

    Love you two in a crazy way.

  10. Is it accurate to say that you are searching for a method for how to see whether somebody got hitched? There a significant number of arrangements that have been proposed by individuals throughout the years. Anyway the progressions that were made to the Freedom of Information Act made online strategies the most favored. I find a very good website for the bowling green vinyl siding , If you want you can visit this site.

  65. The life-changing effects of relationship counseling Cincinnati  are immeasurable. Because we were unable to get past our shared history of hurt and misunderstanding, my spouse and I were mired in an endless cycle of conflict. With the support of our counselor, we were able to work through these difficult experiences and develop more effective communication skills. It's incredible how much better we feel now that we've dealt with our past and started to heal. Do not hesitate to see a Cincinnati expert if you are having difficulty. In a word, it's revolutionary.
