How did you and your husband meet?

Morgan and Justin met the summer of 2015 at a charity event at the Bowery Hotel, NYC. Justin attended the event to speak to a number of Navy Seals about entering the workforce after completing active duty. Morgan, who was wavering back and forth on whether or not to attend, decided to go since a friend of hers was attending. As soon as she walked in, she immediately caught Justin’s eye. The stars aligned and the rest is history.

What was the theme and or style for your wedding?

Rustic chic. Since it was the winter, we wanted to create a warm, romantic feel with a lot of candles, fireplace, blushes, ivories, greenery and hints of burgundy. We also incorporated a s’mores bar around an outside fireplace which was a big hit!

What was your favorite wedding day memory?

It ended up being the first snowfall of the season which we were hoping for but never thought would happen! That made the day extra special and romantic.
