Summer Solstice Wedding || Megan + Keith

Keith & Megan’s Summer Solstice Wedding in Paradise Valley was something out of a storybook! This day is synonymously linked with love and marriage. That is to say, it’s a very popular day to get married.

Like many other brides and grooms, COVID-19 certainly threw a kink in their original plans. However, this couple was still able to have a small ceremony with close friends & family. In addition, it was held at the bride’s parents’ gorgeous home. Above all, Keith & Megan were together and that’s all that really matters.

Their wedding was Irish-themed. For instance, they included hints of lavender, wildflowers, Celtic music, and bells that their guests rang throughout the evening. The bride’s Claddagh ring is an Irish symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship. This is something that embodies Keith & Megan’s relationship. They performed a traditional Celtic Handfasting Ceremony in which the couple’s hands are tied together with a sash. Did you know this is where the term “tying the knot” originated from?!

Sprinkled with a little bit of rain for good luck, their day was perfect in every way!

I just love the mountains as a backdrop! Likewise, this wedding party looks just as stunning!

A little rain fell during the ceremony, but it certainly didn’t dampen this day!

Megan’s parents, John & Bernice, are the sweetest people! Megan is their only daughter. Therefore, this day filled them with joy. And they themselves are celebrating 35 years of marriage! How exciting for everyone!!

We couldn’t forget to include their dogs, Chaos & Kaylie! These fur-kids were in their engagement photos too! In other words, they love these pups. How could you not?!
