NAMES Cameron & Megan Mowry (formerly Runkel) LIVE IN Bellingham HOW DID YOU KNOW HE/SHE WAS THE ONE “There was no real a-ha moment for either of us, but after many long talks, we were extremely fond of spending time with one another. Our worldviews were similar and we knew that we didn’t want to do all of this with anyone else.” HOW HE PROPOSED After an afternoon together at the lake, Cameron proposed to Megan on a bridge overlooking the city of Bellingham during sunset. BACHELOR PARTY A weekend at a condo in Snoqualmie that included rafting, brewery tours and relaxing. BACHELORETTE PARTY A weekend in Chelan, WA in a hotel right on the lake.

Our florist, Botanikal, was amazing.” WEDDING CAKE Chocolate Coconut Craze cake coated on the outside in raw sweetened coconut flakes and Almond Crème Brulee NONTRADITIONAL ELEMENTS Their best friend was ordained to be the officiant.
