Megan Faulkner and JT Lomenick were united in marriage on August 15, 2015. The bride is the daughter of Chuck and Mindy Faulkner of Hernando, Mississippi, and Levy and Julie Harris of Hernando, Mississippi. The groom is the son of Bob and Penny Lomenick of Holly Springs, Mississippi, and Charlie and Ellen Williams of Oxford, Mississippi.
Before Megan and JT ever dreamed of holding hands or exchanging vows, they were sharing crayons and trading juice boxes. The childhood friends were in the same second grade class at Magnolia Heights School in Senatobia, Mississippi. When you’re that young, it can be hard to tell if the butterflies in your stomach are because of the cafeteria food or the cute girl sitting across the room. Years passed before the two realized what they had known all along: They were soul mates.
The high school sweethearts went on to attend university. Megan pursued a nursing degree at Baptist College of Health Sciences, while JT studied at the University of Mississippi. After they completed their bachelor’s degrees, the couple decided to relocate to Denver, Colorado. JT attended law school at the University of Denver.
When Megan and JT closed on their first home, JT decided it was time to make his big move. JT invited their closest friends over and had the group hide at the next-door neighbor’s house. He even made sure a camera was in place to film the surprise. When Megan walked up to the door of their new home, he proposed.
The wedding took place on August 15, 2015, at the Meadow at T-Lazy-7 Ranch in Aspen. For something old, the bride incorporated her mother’s wedding veil into her bouquet. For something new, the bride wore an ivory gown by Nicole Miller. The form-fitting gown featured a low back and lace detailing. She also wore a custom rhinestone and pearl headpiece designed by Amanda Judge.
She borrowed her mother’s diamond tennis bracelet, and blue Toms shoes provided a touch of much-needed comfort as she walked down the aisle. Reverend Alan Cochet officiated the ceremony.
The reception was held at the Lodge at T-Lazy-7 Ranch. Bluegrass band Woodshed Red kicked the evening off with live music and kept guests on their toes late into the night. Conundrum Catering served up a selection of Colorado favorites and adding a bit of Southern charm with a few classic home-style dishes. A s’mores bar out by the campfire added to the chic, rustic feel.
The couple opted for a cheesecake instead of a traditional towering affair. The groom firmly believed that milk and fresh chocolate chip cookies were the best option, so he made sure some of those were available, too.
Following a honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, the couple resides in Denver, Colorado.
