Megan & Tim’s Wedding at Rapid Creek Cidery in Iowa City

You guys. The love story for these brainy lovebirds is adorable. Megan is a Pediatric Neurologist and Tim is a Chemical Engineer. They met the way most people do nowadays — online. From their first date of Whitey’s Ice Cream & mini golf to the countless dates of board games and sporting events, this couple realized their love was incredibly special. They had never felt they way they did about anyone else. Tim was able to surprise Megan with a Christmas present — a Monopoly board. As she looked more closely, she realized it was custom-made by Tim and the properties were all names of places and experiences that they had had together. As she read around the board, her eyes stopped at the spot that is usually Boardwalk. It said: “Will You Marry Me?” Ahhh, we are just melting thinking about the amazing moment that was for the two of them.

When we met Megan at the Wedding Expo, it was an instant connection for our services and her wedding vision. We love a challenge at Soirée, and one of the best parts of our job is figuring out how to incorporate an overall theme into a wedding design without it being ‘too much’. The board game theme for this wedding was a no-brainer, considering their love story. Megan and Tim trusted our ideas to play into this through key elements like stationery and the guest experience. It was the perfect balance of gorgeous wedding decor + personality. We loved the way that their wedding was so special and unique to them.

Megan and Tim were a treat to work with, and we wish them nothing but love & joy as they start their lives together!
