Following a health scare, Megan Adkins and Phillip Gates decided it was time they made their commitment to one another official after eight years and one child together. The couple hosted a laid-back, shoes-optional destination wedding with a beachside ceremony on Florida’s Cocoa Beach on September 5, 2018.
Before the wedding, Megan and her mother fashioned the bouquets and boutonnieres from blooms they sourced from a local grocery store, which matched the rosy tones that were a common theme throughout the wedding, from ceremony decor to the bridesmaids’ gowns to the groomsmen’s shirts and ties to the bride’s coral manicure.
The bride is the assistant director at Children of America, and the grooms works as a security guard at TriHealth. The happy couple currently lives in Maineville.
