In the midst of all the wedding planning a couple months ago, Meagan called to tell us that she and Nathan had decided that the whole wedding party would travel from the church to the reception in a motorhome.
Yes, a motor home. Not a limo, not a vintage car, not a fancy convertible—a motorhome!
Some of you who are new readers might wonder why in the world a newly married couple would choose such an unorthodox mode of transport.
The reason? Nathan spent twelve years of his life living in a recreational vehicle and Meagan spent five years of her life doing the same. (Both sets of parents were involved in full time traveling/preaching/singing ministries that included their entire families.)
In fact, Nathan picked up Meagan for their first “date” from a fifth wheel travel trailer. (They were just good friends at that point.)
And so with their combined history . . .
. . . the Unorthodox Getaway Vehicle Idea was just too great to pass up.
Fun fact: Speaking of families in the ministry, I did an informal tally of all the ministers Nathan and Meagan have in their lives. Between them, they have two grandpas, two dads, two moms, two uncles and one brother-in-law who are all ministers. Just one of the many wonderful things they have in common!
