Meaghan and John grew up in the same neighborhood in Raleigh, North Carolina, and attended the same college—but they didn't meet until 2009, after Meaghan had moved to New York. "I was home for a visit, and he was the bartender at a place I went to one night," she says. "It was a whirlwind romance—he moved up to New York a few weeks later."

The couple exchanged vows at the Church of Our Lady of Peace on the Upper East Side, and, afterward, traveled downtown to Washington Square Park to take portraits in a 1930s Rolls Royce, borrowed from friends.The festivities continued at the Bryant Park Grill, where the couple and their 175 guests enjoyed cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres like mini Kobe beef burgers and crab cakes on the restaurant's rooftop terrace before heading down to the main dining room for the reception.
