Meghan & Nate at Dana Powers House & Barn



This stunner of a wedding was named one of the top 14 weddings for 2014 by California Wedding Day!!! 

Every wedding seems to have a general theme or idea that runs through it. Whether it is a color, an inspiration, an idea or a place, couples can go so many different directions when it comes to the overall design and feel for their big day. With Meghan and Nate the overall theme was more than a design element. It was family. Both Meghan and Nate had the pleasure of having two amazing sets of parents that were relationship role models to say the least. But it doesn’t stop there. Meg and Nate have so many strong and loving couples within both of their families to look up to. They chose to celebrate and incorporate their families into all aspects of the day. From wedding programs with old wedding photos belonging to their grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles (all a surprise to their guests), a wine ceremony that included both sets of mothers, a tree ceremony that included both sets of fathers, and readings by their grandmothers, it was a day filled with celebration and love for the new couple as well as all of the past couples that are so important to them.
