Tom & Morgan | An Elegant Wedding Celebration at St. Raymond’s Parish and Wild Ridge Golf Course.

June 15, 2017

We have been so excited for Tom and Morgan’s day since we first met these two! They are such a fun, charismatic couple with great style and attention to detail (okay, the detail thing I’ll credit to Morgan)!!! Morgan is also a photographer and so going into the day, I had no doubt it would be planned to a “T”!!! I was not disappointed!!

From her rhinestone bridal heels to her Hayley Paige gown, Morgan looked like an absolute princess (which is exactly what her dad commented when he saw her for the first time!!). The invitations, incredible floral by Allure Premiere Event Florists, gold chiavari chairs, and ridiculously delicious cupcakes from Scratch Cupcakery in Iowa (I had the PUPPY CHOW flavor and OH my gosh yum!!!) — not a detail was out of place. Like I said, knowing Morgan, I thought the day would be as so!

More than the details of the day, however, what blew me away about Tom and Morgan’s celebration was the people who were a part of it. These two had the most AMAZING bridal party — SO much fun, full of laughter and encouragement for the bride and groom, and SO kind and respectful — it really doesn’t get any better and working with a group like this makes the day extra special (and easy!) for Caleb and I!

The speeches at the reception were only a continuation of this support as everyone giving a toast struggled to make it though without shedding a tear (or fifty!!). Friends and family spoke SO highly of these two (of course there HAD to be jokes involved to help with the crying situation ; )) and we heard time and time again about Morgan’s confidence and success as an entrepreneur, as well as Tom’s loyalty, skill as a golfer, and recent accomplishment of graduating dental school. Everyone was SO proud of these two and so proud to know them.

I am really excited to share our favorites from their day with you!! Tom and Morgan, THANK YOU for inviting us into your day and for sharing the gift that your friends and family are with us as well! We hope you’re having the BEST time in Hawaii — so much love to you guys!!!!!

Looooove this spot at The Lismore Hotel!!

Seriously the most gorgeous bride/bridesmaids!!!

I cannot get over this gown! Absolutely stunning, Morgan!!

Tom and Morgan’s son, Greyson, is THE cutest little guy around!!

That MARRIED joy!!!

LOVE : )

Morgan had a fan club of little ones following her around all night and this was one of them : ) So sweet!!

Tom is a really good golfer and golfed for the UW all four years of his undergrad. During their first dance, Morgan surprised Tom by having the DJ cut from their originally planned first dance song to the PGA Tour theme song!! I love it!!

Tom and Morgan’s amazing wedding day team!! Thank you!
