Meghan and Chris were married in a traditional ceremony at Kenwood Community Church followed by an indoor reception at the Kenwood Depot in Santa Rosa, Calif. on March 28. ”In March, California was in the midst of a drought, yet one of the few rainfalls of the year was on our wedding day,” Meghan said. “It was a little stressful as forecasts predicted 30-70 percent chance, but we heard all the stories about if it rains, it’s good luck.” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls and a pair of glitter peep-toe platform pumps, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid black tie. Bridesmaids wore short pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and baby’s breath. During the ceremony, a unity candle was lit, and after they were pronounced husband and wife, Chris decided to ring the tower’s bells for all to hear. The newlyweds’ best advice? The newlyweds’ best advice? “Take a stroll after the ceremony and before the reception just the two of you, so you can enjoy time alone and absorb in this once-in-a-lifetime-moment” she said. Guests were greeted at the railroad station with a welcome table displaying a typewriter (and rocks) for well wishes and a birdcage for gifts and cards. ”Our inspiration came from classic romance, the sunset, and lots of candles in an intimate setting of the late 1880′s train depot,” Meghan said. ”My mom and grandmother collected silver arrangements along with old books to create a warm ambiance.” Tables were decorated with burlap runners, votive candles, and a “How Well Do You Know California?” mad libs at each place setting. Notice the Mr. & Mrs. banner on the sweetheart table? The cake was cut with personalized “I do” and “Me too” forks, and the first dance was performed to “Kiss Me” by Ed Sheeran.
