Hello Beautiful!

Meet our stunning bride, Morgan!

She chose a gorgeous beaded Mon Cheri gown for her big barn wedding and we are in LOVE!

We’re also in love with her reaction to the letter she received from her soon-to-be hubby as she got ready….

Morgan and her new husband Aaron were married at Blissful Barn in Three Oaks, Michigan.

This venue, you guys! It’s so so pretty!

They were lucky to have a sunny, summer day so they could take advantage of the beautiful ceremony spot, which was decorated with more gorgeous flowers.

After the ceremony, guests moved inside the gorgeous barn that was decorated with more flowers, drapery and beautiful chandeliers.

The newlyweds even had their own bottles of ranch dressing waiting for them at the head table {ranch lovers for life}!

Let’s find out more about the newlyweds!

Morgan was sweet enough to answer all of my questions - including how they met…

“Aaron and I met in college. We had a class together at different times and I switched my final exam time to take it earlier in the day and it was during his class period. We chatted on social media for about 8 months before he finally asked me out.”

How did he pop the question?

“We had taken a weeks’ vacation to Tennessee and stayed in a cabin in Pigeon Forge. After cooking a steak dinner and eating on the porch of our secluded cabin, Aaron brought out my favorite pie and during dessert, he got on one knee and pulled out the ring.”

Diamonds and dessert…couldn’t have been more perfect! Was Morgan surprised?

“It was a total surprise! I unpacked all of Aaron’s bags because he just throws his clothes in there. I washed everything, folded, and repacked the entire bag. We still do not know how I didn’t find the ring!”

Clearly he had a great hiding spot!

Let’s move on to our fave subject - wedding dress shopping!

“Something Blue was the first place I went to. Immediately they made me feel like I was the most important person in the room and I loved having the clothespins to clip to dresses and to give to my family that came shopping with me. I tried on about 30 dresses and thought I had found THE DRESS. I had a couple more appointments at other stores, so I wanted to check those out first. When I walked into those stores, I was not treated quite as well. I will say no one has customer service like Something Blue. A few weeks later I came back to try my dress on one more time to make sure it was the dress. As we were walking out, another dress caught my moms’ eye and she begged me to try it on. I was reluctant because I thought I had found my dress. Once I tried it on, we all knew that this new one was THE DRESS.”

How did she know??

“When I was comparing the dresses I had picked out, it honestly came down to the glam. I love sparkles and bling and the dress I picked out had more on it than the other and the shoulders in specific were so unique I just had to have it."

Moving onto wedding planning, what was Morgan’s favorite part?

“I loved trying the food! Our caterers held an open tasting that we were able to come to and try all their food. It was bottomless! We got to eat to our desire and it was very helpful in picking foods I wanted.”

What about her least favorite part?

“The guest list and seating chart. It is so hard to decide who to invite especially when you are in a small venue and truly do not have room to invite all your loved ones.”

When her wedding day finally arrived, Morgan’s favorite moment was her walk down the aisle…

“It was a chilly day, but I was warm all over. As many people that were staring at us, it really just felt like it was just me and Aaron and there is no moment that has ever felt as perfect.”

Any advice for other brides-to-be?

“Don’t stress the little things! Worrying about keeping everyone else happy or making sure they’re having a good time is absolutely NOT worth it. It is YOUR day! You only get one! We got behind on pictures before the reception started and people were trying to rush and I said that it was my day and they could wait on us until we were done getting pictures. And my pictures are all amazing. I got to dance at my wedding and laugh with my friends. We didn’t get to greet everyone and that’s okay! As long as you have fun on your day, that is all that matters.

Don’t forget to relax and enjoy being engaged. Planning a wedding with your soul mate can be such a fun experience but it also goes by so fast. Enjoy every minute of every day. “

 We love that! Thank you SO much, Morgan and Aaron, for sharing your beautiful wedding with us!!
