Megan Artz & Adam Hyman

Megan Artz and Adam Hyman worked in different cities for the same company, but their paths crossed in New York City at a corporate event. Starting off as just friends, the two realized there was a spark and began dating long-distance. Eventually, Adam proposed on the shores of Bellagio, Italy. For their March 21, 2015, nuptials, the unconventional couple kept their Joule Hotel ceremony clean and contemporary but opted for a colorful, playful reception.
