Kelly & Meagan

September 19, 2014
Ceremony: Fuller Street Beach
Wedding Dinner: The Red Cat Kitchen

Kelly Royce met Meagan Smith when she became a client at Meagan’s fitness club in the small town of Carthage, Texas. “On November 17th, 2012,” says Kelly. “It’s a day I’ll never forget!” They are passionate about staying active and healthy, and now co-own a fitness studio where they both teach classes. Their work, their faith, and, most importantly, their shared love for their children (six, between them) bonds the couple. Hailing from a conservative area where they cannot be public about their relationship, Martha’s Vineyard was a dream-come-true destination wedding for Meagan and Kelly. Even more so, Kelly says, with the hospitality and acceptance they found on the Island, which made the celebration “all the more special to us.” Their week was filled with well wishes from strangers, sightseeing and bike riding, and laughter and love. “Through the love and warmth of everyone we met,” says Kelly, from hotel and restaurant staff to Island residents and tourists, “we never felt like we were there alone.” The peaceful setting for their beach ceremony made for the most memorable of moments – pure and simple. “The breeze blowing in, cool and crisp, the walk barefoot through the cool sand.” Perfection.
