WeddingWire Q&A with Morgan

What is your ideal wedding style?

Romance and whimsy. I loved the vibe of my wedding (I got married on the west coast of Florida in the spring of 2017) and would totally use it again. I’d label the style “romantic waterfront”, which is totally made up. I wish I was one of those cool chicks who could pull off a chic, black- and moody-accented aesthetic, but as Emily in Paris would say, I am ringarde.

Dream honeymoon location?

Tahiti — overwater bungalow with frozen tiki drink in hand *chef’s kiss*.

What was (or would be) your first dance song?

Our first dance song was "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" by Stevie Wonder. My husband and I even learned a choreographed dance! 

Favorite celebrity wedding look?

The Ralph Lauren gown Priyanka Chopra wore to her Christian wedding ceremony. Could I ever pull off something like that? Nope. But, that illusion high-neck, the button detailing, the 75-foot veil… it gets me every time, pure magic.
