Meagan & Artan : Airlie Gardens
Today it is our pleasure to release Meagan + Artan’s wedding film into the wild. These two lit up the sky! Literally. The whole week before, the weather predictions were for a 100% chance of rain. But the morning of the wedding, the skies opened up and revealed a bright, shining sun that can only be explained by the brilliant love between these two beautiful people.
Meagan and Artan, from opposite sides of the world, met at Barton College in Wilson, NC, fell crazy in love, crossed a million oceans with one another, and then came back to get hitched at the magical Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, NC. The day began with Meagan and Artan getting ready at a couple of beach houses with gorgeous views and all their friends gathered around. The ceremony followed at the Pergola Garden inside Airlie. But before that, Meagan and Artan had their first look by the fountain, surrounded by the lush greenery of the early summer. When Meagan approached Artan, it was as if the sun burned a little brighter and they stepped into their own secret garden. Even the resident swans showed up to bid the couple congratulations! And at the ceremony, Meagan and Artan exchanged the most emotion-filled vows that embodied the playful, yet intense passion they have for one another.
Post-ceremony, the guests enjoyed some cocktails on the Airlie Oak lawn, while the bridal party explored the gardens during their photo shoot with Nik Morina. We had an awesome time working with this Philadelphia-based photographer, who like Artan, is originally from Kosovo. Not only did he have many creative ideas for shots, but he also shared a special connection to the couple and really brought out their personalities throughout the day.
After the photo shoot, Meagan and Artan stole away for a sweet bit of alone time with the sunset, and before you knew it, they were back in the middle of what quickly turned into a crazy party full of laughter, traditional dances and music from Kosovo, and an energy that kept everyone on the dance floor to celebrate this couple all night long! It was a blast from beginning to end, and we’re so grateful to have been a part of it!
Many thanks to all the other incredible creatives we joined for this wedding: Knot Too Shabby Events, One Belle Bakery, Culinary Creations, Party Suppliers & Rentals, and High Performance Lighting & Power.
Cheers to Meagan and Artan for a lifetime of happiness! Stay wild, you two.
