Two years passed before they were introduced at a music show and before Forrest asked Meghan out on a proper date, but he made up for it in his gentlemanly actions—opening the door for her, footing the bill, and stealing a kiss before the night was over. "We were a couple from the get- go," says Meghan. "I met his dog, he met mine, and everything felt easy." Fast-forward through a sentimental proposal (Forrest had combined diamonds from both his grandmother's and Meghan's mother's ring to form a brand-new sparkler) and the Tar Heels found themselves swapping handwritten vows at Mountain Magnolia Inn in Hot Springs, North Carolina. The bride walked down the aisle to "Here Comes My Girl" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, stepping lightly down an aisle runner of pink Oriental rugs to meet her groom underneath a tumbling floral installation that evoked all the fairy tale feels. And while mismatched seating, multiple lounge setups, and a s'mores pit offered lots of opportunity for merrymaking, it's Meghan and Forrest's love for one another that really stole the show.
