ANDREA & MEAGHAN
SHE SAID YES
Our love story began on a warm summer evening in Santa Maria Novella while out with friends. Our two groups came together speaking two different languages, but in spite of our cultural differences, we laughed and danced and walked around the city all night. We had so much fun we met up the next day to have a cook-out, grilling and making traditional Tuscan dishes together paired with Chianti from a local vineyard. This would unfold into one of our many shared passions: gathering our diverse groups of friends around a table with fresh food and good wine, and most importantly, a good laugh. We quickly found how the two of us fit so seamlessly together, in our most fundamental ways of thinking and being in the world.
In the years following that first fun-filled weekend, we have grown together in our love and in our union. We have so many shared experiences that have made our relationship special - supporting each other through career changes, moving across the country, working together on home renovations, and adopting our adorable pup West - to name a few. We continue to have so much fun, traveling the world, creating new experiences, and having many shared goals for our future together.
We feel incredibly lucky to celebrate our love with you on this special day!
