Megan: girly and social. Matt: bearded and outdoorsy. Both unique and both a whole lot of fun to be around! Their uniqueness was personified in Matt's duck-themed Groom's cake decorated with several Texas emblems, sugar-sculpted "shotgun shells," and a proud sign proclaiming that "The Hunt Is Over."

The afternoon of Megan and Matt's wedding, sweet sounds of Hill Country Strings filled the air as guests walked toward the ceremony. The ceremony was held in the Pavilion at Barton Creek with the altar draped with a stunning rose-filled archway. Megan told us, "Our theme would be described as southern elegance and charm with a touch of rustic. Our goal is to give our guests a true Texas wedding experience.”
Megan and Matt were happy to inform us that their crowd wears some crazy dancing shoes, and Megan told us she was really looking forward to seeing her father out on the dance floor. Their wedding reception in Omni Barton Creek Resort's ballroom was the scene of some seriously amazing dancing that lasted throughout the night! Later, guests cheered as they tossed lavender and rose petals as Megan and Matt left their reception, driving away on a golf cart into the starry night.
The Proposal: How it all happened...
Matt shared this story with us: "December 2014: Megan is ready to get Wifed-up, as girlfriends are wont to do. Anytime I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, all Megan said she wanted was an engagement ring. ...Skip to about a week before Christmas, Megan is not happy that she will not be getting what she wants. During some last minute gift shopping, Megan picked out a pair of boots that she loved and I said I would buy them for her as her Christmas gift. Unfortunately, Megan wasn't able to wear the boots after purchasing, because I insisted on wrapping the boots and giving them to her on Christmas. Megan reluctantly agreed.
Megan and I also went ring shopping for the first time, and she even found a ring she liked. I managed to secretly go back to the jewelry store, get the ring she wanted, and find a diamond for it; they were able to get it set and ready in a few days. I also managed to see the FOB before he leaves town to ask for his blessing. I headed to Austin to my parents house to celebrate Christmas, and the plan was for Megan to come to Austin after Christmas to see me and my Family.
The Friday after Christmas, December 27, Megan drove up to Austin to meet us to celebrate Christmas and exchange gifts. After all the presents were open, Megan asked where her boots were. As Megan opened and held up the boots she was so excited about, she noticed a ribbon coming out of the boots. Attached was the ring she had picked out less than a week before! During her initial shock, I got down on one knee and popped the question. Of course, she said YES!
Congrats to Megan and Matt!
