Morgan, a Teacher, and Carl, a Fraud Analyst, tied the knot on June 24, 2017 at the W Hoboken in New Jersey.  In their spare time you can find this dynamic duo at the movies, working out at the gym, vacationing in any number of places around the globe while increasing their pallets as foodies.  Read on as Morgan brings us up to speed on her journey to I Do!

How We Met

Carl and i met in high school. During a New Year’s Eve party in 2004, I had nowhere to sit and he offered me his lap. From that moment on, we spoke almost every day and started dating in May of 2005. We dated each other for 11 years on and off before he popped the question in June 2016.

The Proposal

Carl proposed on the beach of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We were on a family vacation with both of our families. During the middle of the vacation, my sister hired a photographer so that she could take professional family photos. During the session on the beach, we took hundreds of pictures. Then, it was Carl and I’s turn to take pictures. We had already planned our poses because we love taking pictures! So when the photographer said “1” Carl got down on one knee and I was so caught off guard and right after that he asked me to marry him. We then had a mini engagement photo session and celebrated the rest of the vacation!

The Wedding

What made our wedding special was having our favorite people there to make it even more perfect. This day couldn’t have been executed if we didn’t have our loved ones with us!  Everything was unforgettable. Our beautiful vows and of course the LIT reception!  The day was filled with love, laughter, friends, and family.  We also loved the money dance, ceremony, and sparkler send off.  The Bridesmaids were gifted personalized robe and champagne glass, jewelry, and champagne.  The Groomsmen received personalized flask sets and t shirts, and mini bottles of liquor.

Advice for future Coordinated Brides

Try your best to not get upset; bask in the happiness. Any problem that day will seem so much bigger than it really is. Trust the process and always smile 🙂 Also, do not drink too much water – you will not have much time to go to the bathroom.
