The Ashford Estate: Allentown, NJ: Megan & Bobby's Wedding

Everyone that loves Megan knows one thing to be universally true: she is someone who goes after  what she wants. More often than not, she gets whatever it is that she has set her heart upon.

It’s been true since she was a little girl, according to the story Megan’s father told during the reception, about a time he had taken her fishing. She was young, probably no older than 8 or so, when she caught an especially large fish. As Megan tried to reel it in, her father tried to help her. But Megan wasn’t having any of it. This was her fish and she was going to get it all by herself. And she did just that. She surprised her father that day and he stood back with a mix of pride and wonder and watched her handle it all by herself.   

That’s the very same focus Megan used throughout her life. It’s what has driven her to accomplish many things. Her father says that when Megan met Bobby in high school, Bobby became the next big fish that she was going to reel in. Megan loved how smart and funny Bobby was, how he made her feel whenever she was around him.  Bobby was drawn to Megan’s vibrant energy and incredible smile. They dated in high school and continued their relationship while they attended college in Boston and then established careers in New York City.

By the time their wedding day came around, Megan and Bobby had been a couple for so long that no one had any doubts that they were meant to be together. When Megan’s father escorted her down the aisle and took his place in the front row to watch as she and Bobby exchanged vows, he had a familiar look on his face - a mix of pride and wonder at his daughter, who always follows her dreams, and her heart.
