Morgan Blackburn and Justin Thompson were married in September of this year at River Creek Lodge, and theirs was a whirlwind courtship. It started when they found each other on social media and soon discovered that they had tons of mutual friends. After a dinner one evening to get to know each other more, they REALLY knew there was something between them. Within months they were best friends, then madly in love, then expecting their first child, and finally engaged. A little over a year from that first dinner date, they married, are now parents and own their first home together. Morgan said it aptly, "it's true that when you know, you know."
The weather was gorgeous for their 4pm wedding at River Creek. Morgan told us that the wedding would never have happened had it not been for her amazing parents who pulled everything together for them and added special touches. Morgan's vendors were amazing too and made sure that the music, catering, cake and other details were perfect for the newlyweds.
Morgan's theme was rustic, but her palette was classic. The dusty blue, navy, and white worked perfectly in the green outdoor setting. The couple and their bridal party cut beautiful silhouettes all day for the photographer from Waterhouse Studios.
"I thought I knew exactly what I wanted going into it… but I found out that it’s okay to try on different things!! Even things you didn’t necessarily have in mind from the start because you don’t know how you’ll feel about something until you try it on. I definitely feel like my dress was perfect for me, but it was not my original vision. Which is why I am so glad I tried on different styles!! Being open minded is what led me to my dream dress."
The low V back, lace bodice and flowing skirt made this gown absolutely spectacular on Morgan. She wore her mother's wedding day earrings (another special touch) and told us how put together and comfortable she felt all day.
"The BT team (Kelly in particular) was so patient and helpful. She talks to you like a friend, and genuinely tries to lead you in the right direction, while helping to create your dream wedding!! Our experience with BT could not have been better, everything went perfectly thanks to Kelly and her team."
These two purchased all of their attire from BT and we could not have been happier to help them pull together the bridesmaids, menswear and even accessories.
Congratulations to Morgan and Justin (and their new son, Weston). We at Bridal Traditions wish you nothing but happiness in the decades ahead!
