This Fun New Jersey Real Wedding Was Pretty in Pink

We get to read plenty of sugar-sweet proposal stories, but this one just might take the cake!

Groom Chris proposed to his bride, Megan, via cookie!

“We were celebrating Chris’ 25th birthday at my parents house with all of my siblings,” Megan recalled. “Immediately following me bringing out Chris’ birthday cake to sing to him, my Mom walked up to the table with a second cake  — a cookie cake — with “will you marry me” spelled out on top of it!”

The adorable proposal heralds back to how Chris initially asked Megan to be his girlfriend: by writing it on a heart shaped cookie in icing.

Needless to say, their wedding had to be just as cute (and equally sweet!)

Getting Ready

Megan’s wedding dress had a secret. It wasn’t one dress — it was actually two!

The final gown was a dissected Casablanca, featuring the bodice of one dress and the skirt of another.

There was even a monogram sewn into the gown!

“Not A Cloud In The Sky”

The couple chose to head to the golf course for their ceremony.

“It was a bit hot but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky,” the bride commented. “It created the most beautiful backdrop for such a special moment. The ambiance of the ceremony was romantic and intimate and surrounded by nature’s beauty along with our friends and family couldn’t have been any better.”

The Reception

To nail the reception, the couple needed three things: the perfect DJ, a venue both Megan and Chris liked (with a place for an outdoor ceremony), and, perhaps most importantly, really good food.

The country club reception was all that and more.

“It was so fun and we loved being able to celebrate with everyone so much that we didn’t want it to end,” said Megan.
