Wedding Pro Meagan Bechtel and Zack Starr’s Nontraditional Nuptials

Meagan Bechtel and Zack Starr
October 28, 2019

Meagan Bechtel wanted her wedding to Zack Starr to feel more like an “incredible dinner party” than a wedding. The adventurous couple met online, and as Meagan remembers, “It was very clear from our first date that we were meant to be together.” As a hair and makeup artist in Dallas-Fort Worth, Meagan has seen a beautiful wedding at almost every venue in town. Wanting something different for her own celebration, she and Zack decided to venture south for their big day: to Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs. She opted out of a traditional wedding party, bouquet toss, and cake cutting in favor of less traditional elements, like Meagan’s father marrying the couple rather than walking the bride down the aisle and a blessing ceremony of the couple’s rings. The wedding weekend also included bouldering and a tailgate as pre-wedding festivities. Looking back, Meagan says that, for them, bucking tradition paid off. “The wedding that we had was exactly right for us.”
