We are back with another post featuring a lovely Simply Luxe Bride! This time we are sharing Megan and Dan's Allerton Park wedding and SPOILER ALERT is was stunning!! Megan and Dan met in the summer of 2005 through mutual friends. The real kicker is that both thought the other was cute but they didn't end up hitting it off. Three years later Megan and Dan reconnected at a party at Dan's friend's house and they began talking and spending more and more time together. On the 28th of September in 2008 Dan asked Megan to be his girlfriend on North Avenue Beach in Chicago after spending the day downtown! I mean is that cute or what?! In the spring of 2009 both Megan and Dan realized that they had found someone very special. Six years later after one boxer puppy and the purchase of a home, Dan popped the question! Megan and Dan spontaneously went to Nashville, Tennessee for Christmas. Dan wrapped the engagement ring in a large bag, as not to raise suspicion, and surprised her on Christmas morning. She said yes and on September 2, 2016 Megan and Dan began their forever!

Their wedding was at Allerton Park & Retreat Center in Monticello, Illinois. There are endless gardens, statues, and hidden treasures to experience on the grounds making their wedding day romantic, enchanting and stunningly beautiful!

Megans dress, Bali, is an ethereal gown by Willowby. This stunning ivory Natalia lace and soft netting gown fit perfectly in her enchanted garden setting. The soft v-neckline and sweeping chapel train were the perfect romantic touch to this dress! The pearl buttons and her addition of a sparkly belt were unforgettable!
