Megan was initially skeptical of a blind date set up by her coworker, Kevin (who also served as their officiant), with his friend named Ufuk. After all he had a "funny name," pronounced Oofook, and he chose a restaurant that was close for him, but not for Megan. She decided to go anyway and they have been together ever since.
These two live in London, and have families in the U.S. and Turkey, so they opted to have not one, but three weddings! They were officially married in London and then came to the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee to have their stateside ceremony at the Chase House. A Turkish wedding is in the works as well (wish I could photograph that too!), so these two have lots of celebrating to take part in this summer.
Part of the festivities included the bride and groom entering the banquet room wearing masks with Kate Middleton and Prince William faces on them! It took everyone by surprise and had them all laughing as the couple took the floor for their first dance. Ufuk also recently had a birthday, so in addition to the wedding cake and Turkish Delight for dessert, he had a little birthday cake too.
Megan and Ufuk, I hope you make it to Portland for some lobster rolls, and happy third wedding coming up soon!
