On April 24th, I photographed Meghan and Craig’s Community House of Moorestown Microwedding in Moorestown, New Jersey! Their beautiful vintage wedding took place in the library of the Community House of Moorestown. One of the reasons they fell in love with their venue is because the history behind it, and it seemed fitting that both the venue and her engagement ring are from the 1920’s. Going vintage with their theme fell together seamlessly, but there are some modern twists to the style as well. Also, it seemed fitting to be getting married in a library since many of their “dates” in college were at the library!
Meghan and Craig met their freshman year of college where they both ran cross country for Bloomsburg University. Coincidentally, their hometowns were only 30 minutes apart and in high school, their cross country and track teams competed against each other often but they never met before college. Although he did know of her from his teammates though! About a year after they met, a mutual friend was determined to set them up – so she invited them over to her place for a game night and had them match up as partners, and then the following week Craig invited Meghan to a get-together his friend was having, and they’ve been together ever since!
Engaged on 06/11/2021, the proposal from Meghan: “It seemed like a typical Friday, but throughout the day Craig kept texting me asking when I was going to be home (which isn’t like him). All I could think was why did he want to know so bad! It turns out he had planned on proposing at a park near our house but it was supposed to storm… and it definitely stormed so he had to change plans! So when I got home from work the first thing I see is him standing in the middle of our living room with roses. I was confused as to what was going on until he started his speech (which I don’t remember because I was freaking out!). He proposed with his great grandmother’s engagement ring and it was a perfect proposal for us.”
Meghan’s advice for couple’s currently planning is that organization is key. Even though she was planning a small microwedding, there were so many things to do or keep track of that it made her head spin at times. She says she may have looked crazy having a big binder with all the checklists, timelines and wedding information but it ended up being a lifesaver for her! They were most looking forward to spending time and sharing this moment with their family, some they haven’t seen since before the pandemic started! They eventually plan to honeymoon in Iceland.
