Morgan and Bryan had a gorgeous Fall day to surprise (most of) their family and friends with their Hallockville Museum Farm
Wedding! Yes I said surprise them! Everyone thought they were attending their Engagement Party. Sneaky right, it sure was! Well with Bryan’s sense of humor and Morgans amazing planning the day went absolutely perfectly with a sweet ceremony officiated by the wonderful Reverand Sarah Margaret
right before sunset. They celebrated after the ceremony by dancing the night away to the sounds of Tradewinds the Band
who rocked the barns roof off. They have a very sweet love story that is so worth sharing. Check it out:
Morgan tells it like this, “So, Bryan and I actually met on Tinder… Bryan loves to tell the story about how I “swiped right” first and he was some stud muffin picking and choosing only the most worthy of his attention… then poof! We were a magical match!
Truth is, I immediately connected to his eyes. They were kind…He had a sweet smile and kind eyes. When I looked at him, I saw a sincere, genuine man and I instantly wanted to know him.
We began dating in mid-January and we were basically inseparable ever since. He would probably tell you that he didn’t think I was interested at first! (But, it might have had something to do with the fact that he threatened to put a paper bag on my head if I wasn’t pretty… Obviously, he thinks he’s hysterical and he’s been pushing those limits since Day 1! If I say it once, I must say it a hundred times a day- “You are so lucky you’re cute….”
In a very short amount of time, we realized that we became a cliché… When you know, you know. But why stop there? Just as we seem to always do, we stopped listening to the world around us and did things “our way”. It has been so much more fun this way! We began planning the engagement party/surprise wedding well before we were even engaged! He (finally) made it official on July 3, 2015 (Yes, you did the math correctly!) We were together for less than 6 months when we decided that we were having so much fun already, we might as well make it forever! Although our loved ones were a bit skeptical, I had no concerns about the quick (and, well, short!) engagement. Even his daughter, Peighton, was all-in from the very beginning. We were already becoming a family, our wedding just made it official!
I found everything I was looking for in a partner when I found Bryan. We bicker and argue just like everybody else… But, there’s something really special that comes from actually talking through the challenging times. He hears me. He supports me and my crazy ideas and dreams… And, somehow, Bryan makes everything seem so obtainable. He is truly my best friend and I can’t even remember what life was like without him…
There are no other words to describe how my life has changed since meeting Bryan… It was “organic” from the start! Everything had just fallen so perfectly into place and I knew that my whole life was leading me to that one, singular moment when I would finally be able to look at my life and think “It all, finally, makes sense…” Everything in my life was leading me to the single moment when I found him… my amazing husband, hidden behind the kindest eyes I have ever seen.
A special thank you to my talented friend Lisa Nicolosi for second shooting with me. Here are some of my favorites form the day to share with you:
