Behind the Scenes Planning with Meghan | Introduction & Engagement Photos

If you work in the wedding industry chances are, you know the ins and outs of what makes a truly amazing wedding day. You may work with a bride and groom’s vision from an actual picture, a Pinterest board, or a dinner conversation (those can sometimes be the best!).


In six months, I, (Meghan, Event Producer at Whitney Werts & Company) will take my turn being THE bride on May 12, 2018 at the Oregon Golf Club. I will (or try to, ha!) take off my event producer hat and enjoy a day that has only been a dream thus far. Over the next months, I look forward to sharing some personal insights, knowledge and learnings from my own planning experience. Be sure to understand that I know not everything I share will apply to your day, your clients or your vision but I believe it is important and humbling to have the chance to follow along.

Scott and I got engaged last October, so yes, you could say we have enjoyed a nice engagement. For us, having a longer engagement has been beneficial for our families and even our own relationship. We were fortunate enough to go on a family trip to Hawaii in July which became the perfect opportunity and backdrop for our engagement session.

It had been rainy and cloudy (a tropical rain) the day before we took our photos so as you can image the texts sent to the photographer were frequent. First milestone: learn to accept and believe that what will be will be and positive thoughts only!

When we looked through all 115 photos together, it was the first time we really saw and had time to reflect on our relationship and love for each other through raw, emotional, and authentic lens. It wasn’t a selfie shoot like we are typically use to where we review the photo and retake until it’s just right. We noticed each other let down guards and let go of insecurities, which created moments and photos that still seem surreal. Take a look and enjoy some of our favorites! 

Love, Meghan
