Wedding in Paradise | Paradise Cove | Megan & Jordan

Today we are getting an education in the lesson of love from a Wedding in Paradise. Newlyweds Megan and Jordan met in their first year of teaching at an elementary school. She is a kindergarten teacher and he is a Physical Education coach. Their story began when Jordan blew off a talk with the Principal to chase after her so they could chat after Meet the Teacher night. Naturally, Jordan likes to say that he gets all the credit for initiating their relationship.

Jordan was also the one who planned their first date. He used the equation of scary situations plus girl of his dreams equals Halloween Horror Nights. His plan worked out because Megan spent most of the night in his arms because she was so scared. It was the perfect date night.

Along with their love for teaching is their love for Disney. They occasionally have dates there and it was on one particular night that Jordan proposed. He coordinated everything. When they took a picture together under the large Christmas tree at the Magic Kingdom, he got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. Megan said yes and she was even more surprised when their whole family jumped out of the bushes to congratulate them.

Aside from date nights like being at Disney, you will find them at home playing multiple rounds of board games. They love to have fun, but are also a little competitive. Megan traditionally gets a Nerf gun for Jordan as a Christmas gift. She says she is his Nerf gun collection enabler. Randomly one of them will leave a Nerf gun laying around the house initiating a battle. They will go around and fire at each other until a truce is made. Even on their wedding day Megan shot Jordan with a Nerf gun during their first look.

Family is very important to Megan and Jordan and they incorporated them throughout their wedding day. One such case is the Superman ring Jordan wore that belonged to his father. His groomsmen wore Superman shirts under their wedding attire to honor his father and surprise him during the couples first dance.

Another something special you will notice as you scroll through their amazing photos is a fuzzy stuffed unicorn. His name is Carl and he has become a regular guest at family weddings. He was won as a prize at Universal Studios on the eve of Jordan’s sister’s wedding. Everyone felt that since he was at the party the night before, he should attend the wedding, too. It then became a family tradition. Jordan’s mom even took out his stuffing to ship him to New York for a cousins wedding. She re-stuffed him when she got there and he was good to go. Carl is such a hit he usually gets more attention and photos then anyone else at weddings.

That brings us to their beach themed wedding in Paradise Cove in Orlando. If you have not been to Paradise Cove, it is like a little secret beach that is nowhere near the coastline. The venue sits on Lake Bryan and has a nice sandy shore, so you feel like you are at the beach. The weather was gorgeous for their outdoor ceremony. The reception took place under a covered pavilion adorned with soft twinkling lights all throughout the space. They incorporated their beach theme into decorations like starfish as seating assignments and seashells for guests to sign. I am so excited to show you how Megan and Jordan’s special day was truly a Wedding in Paradise.
