Sam and Megan met in July of 2007 when Megan came to work for his father who is a plastic surgeon. For years both Megan and Sam had their own lives and their own relationships. Yet, every time they’d see each other at the office, there was always a twinkle in both of their eyes. Everyone always thought it would be so nice if they’d end up together. Strangely, Megan dreamt about Sam for an entire year and always wondered why he was in her dreams. In November of 2009, both of their relationships were getting rocky and Megan had the courage to finally tell Sam that she had been dreaming of him off and on for a whole year. Sam responded with, “I didn’t have to dream to think about you”. The next time they saw each other at the office, Megan’s heart began to race..
As Sam got in the elevator while Megan said goodbye, the doors closed and something incredible happened. At that exact moment they both felt something that would change their lives forever.
Megan text Sam, “Did you feel that?” and Sam replied.. “yes!” They both knew at that moment how deeply they felt about one another. They both were single before they knew it; spending endless nights on the phone, wining and dining and realizing that they were the perfect match.
Six months later, they found a house and moved in together. Almost a year later, Sam planned out the most romantic engagement a girl could dream of.
It was Megan’s birthday in May and while Sam was playing dumb the entire day, Megan thought he didn’t have anything planned for her. Little did she know, Sam had planned out something spectacular. While at work, Megan received a gigantic display of red roses with a card enclosed with a room key to the Biltmore hotel with step by step directions on what to do. Everything she would need was at the hotel already; she just had to get there. The bellhop escorted her to her room which was the entire 13th floor, the Al Capon Suite! Sam had a dress, shoes and jewelry all picked out in a beautiful box on the bed. Rose petals along the floor, candles…the whole works. Later that evening, they met and Sam proposed.
They set up their wedding in 6 short months to get married at the Marriott in Marco Island in front of their closest friends and family. They would take trips there a couple times a year and thought it would be the perfect place for a destination wedding.
As much as they hoped for no rain at this outdoor wedding, it did. It drizzled lightly the entire night but it never got these two love birds down, they had a permanent smile on their faces all night. They even had wedding crashers come dance with them at the end of the night! The wedding turned out beautiful and was a complete success.
