On Saturday June 30, 2012 Megan Gladding and Aaron leach celebrated their wedding reception at the Embassy Suites in Hampton, Virginia. Sandy Brock and her staff did an outstanding job at the event and the food was quite tasty as well. Megan is the daughter of Frankie and Marilyn Gladding who I have known for many years through church. I have seen Aaron, and his brother and Best Man Matthew race winged champ carts at Langley Speedway. It was fun to make mention that Matthew won the 20 lap race the night before the wedding!
The wedding party was announced to “Bring Em Out” by T.I. and Jay-Z. Megan and Aaron were introduced and shared their first dance to “Living Our Love Song” by Jason Michael Carroll. Megan got a big surprise when we lit the room in purple with uplighting. Next to take the floor were Father of the Bride, Frankie and Megan for the Father Daughter Dance, “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Aaron and his mom followed with the Mother Son Dance “My Wish” from Rascal Flatts. Toasts were given by Best Man Matthew Leach and Maid of Honor Erin Adams, and Megan and Aaron cut the wedding cake to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor.
During the dancing portion of the reception, we played the Shoe Game, a fun game which the bride and groom swapped shoes and I asked a series of questions that Megan and Aaron answered by holding up the appropriate shoe. Lot’s of fun!!
The night concluded with “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton as their last dance
Julie Martin of JM Photography did the photography.
