Meggie Goodnow and Michael Ferguson met in college in 2006. They both lived in the freshman dorms at Kent State University. Each grew up in Stark County — she lived in North Canton and graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas; he lived in Perry Township and graduated from Perry High School. Meggie and Michael remained friends throughout their college years and began dating after college in 2010. Michael proposed on Meggie’s birthday in 2012 while the couple were vacationing in Marco Island, Fla.They married there a year later on April 20, in San Marco Catholic Church with a reception following at the Marco Island Hilton.
“We had a cocktail hour on the beach followed by dinner and dancing by the pool! It was absolutely beautiful, and we are so lucky,” Meggie said. “We had 88 guests — mostly family and a few friends. Our reception was one of a kind … we all danced the entire evening. It was amazing!”
The couple bought a home and reside in Perry Township for now — but they hope to retire to Marco Island someday.
