It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that we were taking photos of Megan and Jacob getting ready to take the plunge! I am not sure it is possible for me to put into words how much I love this couple. They have taught me so much about the meaning of love and the value of life through the way they live every day with a positive attitude and grace. This couple (and their family) has endured a rough few years with battles with illnesses and the losses of both of their fathers to cancer. Their wedding was a time to celebrate life, love and all out happiness for the union of two beautiful people committing their lives to each other.
As a testament to how loved and special Megan and Jacob are, 91 of their close friends and family members were able to make it to Playa del Carmen, Mexico to help them celebrate their love. Friends and family all came together to pitch in and make this the most magical wedding I have experienced. It was a celebration that lasted for several days culminating in one heck of a wedding ceremony and reception at the Mahekal Beach Resort.
During the cocktail hour, a serendipitous rainstorm blew through. After 5 minutes of a crazy downpour, a beautiful rainbow appeared. As I was trying to get Jacob’s attention to join Megan underneath the heaven sent rainbow, he let me know that he had a honey bee land on his finger and it was going to take him a minute. Jacob’s father was a beekeeper and their family owned a honey business. The significance of the rainbow and the honey bee together at that moment in time literally took my breath away and showed me and all of the guests that there must be something truly magical out there. I am so glad that even though both the bride and groom’s fathers weren’t physically able to be present, they were able to make their love known to all of us that day. I wish Megan and Jacob nothing but a life full of laughter, good health, and many more magical moments!
