Between all the insane storms hitting Texas & Oklahoma the last two weeks, and the fact that it was mid-May, I’ll be honest… I didn’t expect great weather at Meagan & Cody’s Odessa wedding. Odessa in the summertime is traditionally similar to the surface of the sun, only drier. So color me surprised when we arrived at Meagan’s home church, only to find green grass, flowering trees, tolerable temperatures, and a lovely breeze. I mean, wow. I know we could have made magic for Meagan & Cody even if the sky unleashed a storm on us, but man, we sure were glad for that gorgeous weather!
Meg and “Coach” (as high school teacher/coach Cody is more commonly addressed) were married at the Crossroads Fellowship, with a reception following up the road at the MCM Elegante. The couple had such a supportive group of family & friends there to celebrate with them, and as far as I can tell, the day went off completely without a hiccup. We were so glad we could be a part of it!
Enjoy some of our favorite images of the day… starting, of course, with Meg’s yummy Jimmy Choo heels.
I spy a former McG bride!There’s no higher honor than when our clients tell their friends to book us… that means we accomplished every bit of our goal.
A sweet moment between the bride & her grandfather just before their long walk down the aisle…
This little courtyard outside the chapel was the PERFECT place for a 5 Minute Rule… Cody & Meagan were able to soak in a little uninterrupted time with each other, followed by some beautiful portraits.
Mack and I can’t recall the last time we had such a completely cooperative wedding party… especially not one this large! Every single person was on the ball, ready to help in whatever way they could. They were actually SO on top of things that our portraits ran ahead of schedule, instead of the more-expected lateness. SCORE!
The ballroom at the MCM Elegante was all set for a classy party… serving chicken & waffles for dinner put everyone in the right frame of mind for fun!
Glo-sticks and light up rings were SUCH a fun touch, both for the observing guests, and for the crazies on the dance floor!
I said before that Coach & Meg had an incredibly cooperative wedding party, and that’s true. We never had a spot of trouble from them all day long. But I WILL say that two groomsmen took it upon themselves to ramp the party up, and because of images like the one below, I have dubbed these two gentlemen “The Corruptors”.
All too soon, it was time to ride off into the sunset together!
Congratulations, Meagan & Cody! It was so much fun to work with you this past year, and we know you have a fantastic new journey ahead of you.
