Once upon a time, Eric Patton, Jr. caught Megan Hoffman’s eye at the Church of the Resurrection’s neighborhood carnival. A friendship developed between the Brookline natives, which blossomed into an eight-year courtship. When their daughter, Annabella, was born, Eric decided to make the monumental day even more special. “As the nurses bundled up Annabella, everyone began to come in and visit,” Megan explains. “As I’m looking down at her in awe, nothing ever seemed so perfect. Everyone around me began to move. And as I looked up at the people I love surrounding me, Eric was at my bedside on one knee.” Megan, of course, said yes to her Prince Charming, and once Annabella was old enough to join in the celebration, too, the couple shared a fairy tale-themed wedding day. Wearing a satin, A-Line gown with pearl and sequin embellishments, Megan exchanged vows with Eric at the St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. Then, they joined Annabella for a carriage ride before the reception at The Fez. “Walking through all of our guests as they blew bubbles [outside of the church] while we walked to get on our horse-drawn, Cinderella carriage would be my favorite memory from my wedding day,” Megan says. And they live happily ever after.

“Try as hard as you can to not get stressed out,” Megan says. “Everything will work out and be perfect.”

Megan and Eric’s daughter, Annabella, looked like a princess herself on the big day!

The couple’s purple, teal, and silver color scheme was beautifully incorporated into their vanilla cake with raspberry filling and buttercream icing.
