    Gosh, I honestly believe Anne is the most gorgeous Bride I’ve seen my entire life. That dress is amazingly perfect. (And I am NOT one for weddings!)

    Geez, what is it about being engaged that makes me tear up at the mere MENTION of a wedding!? I’ve always been a little teary when attending a wedding, but now just the photos are enough to turn me into a blubbering idiot.

    Anne’s dress is INCREDIBLE! I hope to find something similar. Congrats Anne and Matt!

    I LOVE Anne’s dress! I get so tired of seeing the same strapless look all the time – love the lace shoulders ๐Ÿ™‚

    Her cake is also beautiful & I love that you were able to help her brother be a part of it all!

    Megan – I like you and I like your blog, but something about this post and your earlier wedding tweets that bother me.

    You tweeted the first photo of Anne and Matt’s first dance, which also showed the first glimpse of her wedding dress. That is a such a personal moment and one that should have been shared by Anne first and not by you, especially with some crappy cellphone picture veiled with an Instagram filter to make it look cool. Take all the pictures you want of you and your friends, but leave the personal moments to the bride at least until she has a chance to post something about her own wedding, because after all it was her day, not yours. I thought you would have shown a little more reverence to the bride and groom.

    P.S Your “guest” should also have shown some discretion when she tweeted the location of the wedding.

      I appreciate your concern, but the bride gave me full permission to tweet that photo (I even asked right before I sent it) and we discussed blogging before hand. I left out a lot of details and plan to link Anne’s posts as soon she writes them

        I’m simply of the opinion that just because she gave you permission doesn’t negate the fact that it’s still tacky. Anne strikes me as a lovely girl and was probably much too gracious to say no. And if these photos are any indication of the quality of the camera on that phone that Verizon is pimping out to bloggers , I’ll stick with my iPhone.

      Oh and my “guest” was also an invited guest of the wedding, not my +1 ๐Ÿ™‚ Theodora is also a good friend of Anne

        Wow, Helen. I don’t understand why you are too concern. I think Meghann did a great job recapping the wedding from her point of view without detailing too much of the wedding–I still can’t tell where the wedding was except it was near Winchester (and I am from Virginia). I don’t know what happened during the wedding ceremony, nor do I know what the first dance was too. I don’t know who caught the bouquet, or what song Anne chose to dance with her father to? We don’t know any of the personal moments of the wedding. Even after reading Meghann’s recap, I’m still looking forward to reading Anne’s posts so I don’t think that Meghann took away any of Anne’ personal wedding moments. Also, if Anne didn’t want pictures of her wedding, I don’t think she would allow pictures during the ceremony or reception. Besides Anne retweeted Meghann’s collage picture on her Twitter page.Besides with all the social media I’m pretty sure Anne’s non-blogger friends have already posted some wedding pics on Facebook with their crappy phones.

    Beautiful capturing of Anne’s wedding! I love reading wedding recaps to see how differently people share their day, and I love the emphasis on local foods.

    Hope you get to spend more time in the area before heading home – I’m guessing you love that fall-like weather. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks so breath-taking!! Gorgeous bride, regal venue, elegant details left right and centre — wow. I can only imagine the emotions running through not only the happy couple, but everyone there. It really looked as if love and fun were in the air. And I’m SO glad her brother got to interact as much as possible.
    It makes for a beautiful story.

    As someone who recently got married, I can say that I believe that Meghann posting pictures of the wedding is not “tacky” in the least. I encouraged my guests to take pictures and post them on Facebook, Twitter, etc. I knew that I wouldn’t get around to posting pictures right away, so having my friends document and share worked out really well. Obviously, not every bride may feel this way but I certainly don’t think Meghann was crossing any lines, especially since she had the bride’s permission. ๐Ÿ™‚

    OH MY GOD. I just got goosebumps and teary eyes all at once. Anne, you are a GORGEOUS bride. That dress belongs on Pinterest. You know you’re royalty now. Seriously though, I think that is my dream wedding dress.

    And the VENUE. I love the house. The pillars. Everything. It’s so Southern and beautiful. I’m swooning.

    And YOU and Theodora looks beautiful as well!! Miss you ladies. I know you had a rockin’ time.

      They’re from Target. Actually, the leggings and belt are Target too. The only thing not from Target is the dress, which is FiveBamboo. ๐Ÿ˜‰
