Meagan Hill and Sean Farrell were united in marriage on December 19, 2015. The bride is the daughter of Brian and Debbie Hill, who reside in Hernando, Mississippi. The groom is the son of Mike and Alise Farrell, who reside in Olive Branch, Mississippi.
The Prince Charming to Meagan’s Cinderella, Sean first caught Meagan’s eye in a moment of middle school duress. After being told that her shirt straps were too narrow, Meagan was faced with two choices: call her mom and tell her about the dress code violation or find a jacket to wear for the rest of the day. Sean, a gentleman even in the sixth grade, offered Meagan his baseball jacket.Fast forward to 7/29/15. Meagan woke up to a text message from her mom about attending a friend’s birthday dinner later that night. Under the impression that it was just a typical Wednesday evening, Meagan made plans to go work out before attending church that evening. She mentioned this to her mom and was completely taken aback when her mom tried to talk her out of it. Clearly, she knew something that Meagan didn’t.
After her workout, Meagan went to community group at her church. Instead of the usual hour-long service, there was an ice cream social. Meagan left early, completely throwing off the plan for the evening. She met up with her mom and her sister under the pretense of exploring the University of Mississippi’s campus before dinner. They were walking along, and just as Meagan mentioned sending a quick photo to Sean, she rounded the corner and found him standing there with a ring in hand.
The ceremony was held on December 19, 2015, at Paris-Yates Chapel on Ole Miss’ campus. The bride was given in marriage by her father, Brian Hill. Her sister, Lexie, was the maid of honor, and the groom’s brother, Josh, was the best man. Joseph Garrison played the organ, and Dave Leblanc officiated.
The bride wore an Allure trumpet gown with a sweetheart neckline and a low back. For something old, she wore her paternal great grandmother’s ring. Her dress served as something new. She borrowed her sorority sisters’ badges, and her great-great-grandmother’s heirloom broach counted as something blue.
A reception followed, complete with live music and a decadent dinner menu: boiled shrimp, candied bacon, duck poppers and a homemade candy bar. The grooms cake blended the couple’s love of Ole Miss football and that the groom is attending medical school. The bride and groom had their first dance to George Strait’s “Check Yes or No,” the father-daughter dance was to Bob Carlisle’s “Butterfly Kisses,” and the groom danced to Rascal Flatts’ “My Wish” with his mother.
After a honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the couple is at home in Oxford, Mississippi. Both alumni of Ole Miss, the bride works for Kessinger Real Estate, and the groom is continuing his studies at the university’s medical school.
