     "I met Cody at the BSC Aquatic and Wellness Center in Bismarck, ND where we were both lifeguards. I came into apply for the position and Cody says that’s where he saw me for the first time. Cody and I worked shifts together and we began hanging out a lot. We were both in college at the time. After months had past he told me that it was love at first sight! He could tell me everything I was wearing the first day I saw him, and he says he instantly loved my laugh. I was instantly falling for him as well. Cody’s witty sense of humor and handsome smile knocked me off my feet!        We dated for 3 years, and in that time we grew so much! We experienced graduation, new jobs, long distance, bust most of all we grew stronger. Stronger in love, life, and faith.       On the day before Thanksgiving in 2016, Cody played it cool asking if I wanted to go get something to eat. Little did I know he would take me to a room full of flowers and candles. As he knelt down we both cried. In that moment my best friend, love of my life, and man of my dreams asked me to be his wife." -Megan

     We started with the big things first! We first booked our venue, caterer, photographer, and church. This was a blast! Cody and I were lucky to experience this process with some great businesses ran by great people.      The flowers, hair, and attire were of coarse the fun stuff. The mass mailers for everything took a lot of time and Cody and I licked a lot of envelopes. If you can get through the process of mass mailing as a couple, you can get through a lot! J            Our wedding was in September and we decided on beautiful fall colors, and rustic décor. We made all our own mason jars. The mother of the bride was quite crafty and we took lots of miscellaneous decorations and put them together for an eclectic feel. Our cousins even made us our own photo booth backdrop made out of pallets.
