During their sophomore year of college, Bryson and Megan met at a church college retreat. The two sat next to each other during dinner one night and talked all about their dreams and desires, finding out that they had similar interests. After the dinner, the two were inseparable. However, the two had met a year earlier in their atmospheric science class. Megan was friends with a close friend of Bryson’s, the two sat near each other in class but never formally met. The night before the final exam, Megan and a group of students, including Bryson, ended up studying together. Bryson accidentally took Megan’s notecards home with him and the next day the two met up so Bryson could give Megan back her notecards. Bryson thought Megan was overbearing and Megan believed Bryson to be a slacker. Who knew that a few years later the two would end up getting married?! 

While dating, Bryson and Megan enjoyed cooking meals together, watching movies, and spending time reading books. The two look forward to getting married and moving to a big city to spend time exploring.  Bryson, 21, is an intern at their home church in Lubbock, TX. Megan, 22, works for the Vice Chancellor of Texas Tech University as a Unit Coordinator.

Last Fall, Megan was an intern at a large non-profit in D.C. At the end of the internship, Bryson flew up to visit Megan, and the two took a trip to NYC. The second day in the Big Apple, Bryson took Megan to a cute restaurant called Jams for brunch. After they had finished eating, the couple took a walk through Central Park to see the Strawberry Fields, where Bryson got down on one knee and proposed!

Megan and Bryson chose to hold their wedding at Ma Maison on Friday, July 1st earlier this year. Navy and rose gold tints adorned the property with greenery and white floral accents for a timeless and simplistic, elegant feel. 200 of the Megan and Bryson’s closest family and friends gathered at The Grove ceremony site to witness the two become one. Eight groomsmen in traditional suits began the ceremony.  Eight bridesmaids followed down the aisle, shining in rose gold sequined dresses with scoop backs. The two exchanged vows and became the new Mr. and Mrs. Bryson Riley.

Megan and Bryson hoped that their guests enjoyed their time celebrating the newly married couple. Many guests were flying in from all over the country and Megan and Bryson were honored that they wanted to be a part of the couple’s special day. The Great Hall was filled with dancing guests after dinner was served. The new Mr. and Mrs. ended their wedding day walking through a tunnel of sparking sparklers. The newly married couple headed to the Van Zandt hotel in Austin and flew out the next day to The Royal Resort in Playa Del Carmen to sip on a few margaritas to relax and celebrate their new marriage.
