What made the day so special

Getting married in the chapel at Kevin's alma mater, Georgetown Prep.

Favorite detail

The CD of love songs—ranging from “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers to the Grateful Dead’s “Midnight Hour”—that Kevin created. The CDs served as place cards at the reception.

Favorite moment of the day

For Meghan, it was when the couple was driving to the reception. “Kevin and I had a moment to ourselves. He was emotional and said some heartfelt things which completely melted my heart,” she says. For Kevin, the highlights of the day were “saying ‘I do’ to my beautiful bride and taking pictures with our dog, Makai.”
