Thorndale Oaks Wedding: Jonathan and Megan



Photographer: Moira Grace Photography

Location: Thorndale Oaks, Oxford NC

Getting to see Megan and Johnny tie the knot at Thorndale Oaks was so special and a tearjerker for sure!

I’ve known these two since high school before they first met, I first met Megan at a mutual

friends Christmas party, we baked sugar cookies as I got to know her fun and quirky self.

I met Johnny in acting class he always got the part of the kings or any man with a loud booming

voice, although off the stage he was a lot quieter and calmer. They balance each other out perfectly in their

personalities. This wedding is also so special to me since it’s the first wedding I’ve captured

where I knew the Bride and Groom wayyy before getting to shoot their wedding!

The day ran so smoothly, their ceremony only lasted 13 minutes and we were way ahead of schedule.

Even better the weather originally called for rain and instead, God blessed us with sunshine and clear skies!


Johnny and Megan first met through their homeschool group for their graduation. Johnny

was interested in Megan at first sight whereas Megan was completely oblivious to his

advances. Megan’s mom was the first to point him out to Megan while they took their class

group photos of 2016. Her mom thought to herself “Oh, wait a minute it looks like he

likes Megan!” when expressing this to Megan, Megan thought she was crazy but not

long after graduating Johnny asked Megan out on a date and the rest is history 🙂



Megan’s mom has been an active part of helping with their wedding day. With Megan

being her only daughter she wanted to get to plan her only girl’s wedding knowing

she wouldn’t get another chance. Megan is a laidback and hand’s off kinda gal so before

her mother could even insist she had already handed over the reins

for her mom to take hold, with only one request: hire me!
