Morgan and Katie’s love story started on a 36 hour layover and an online date. Morgan, from Mississippi, and Katie dated a few times but after six months felt led to part ways. But sometime later a met up for dinner was filled with butterflies and realization that the Lord had brought them back together for a wild ride full of trials, tribulations, trips and blessed abundant faithfulness writing their forever love story.
On February 24th, 2017 Morgan proposed to Katie at Hope Community Church. He had flown in their family members for the special moment and had them hiding in the sanctuary of the church. Later the group celebrated at Cantina 1511 at Park Road Shopping Center in Charlotte, NC. Shortly after, Katie said yes to a beautiful lace, A-line, illusion back Pronovias gown at Poffie Girls.
Katie and Morgan shared their first look at Winghaven Garden on July 28th, 2017 just before their wedding. Morgan was blown away, and excited to take Katie’s hand in marriage at the Myers Park United Methodist Church in Charlotte. After their “I Do’s”, Morgan and Katie enjoyed a night surrounded by friends and family at Byron’s South End for magical reception and their first dance to “Everything” by Michael Buble.
They honeymooned at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort in St. Lucia which Katie refers to as “true heaven on earth.” Katie says her favorite part of the day was “getting to celebrate with our most beloved friends and family.” She also enjoyed their first look, and tells future brides to “Savor every moment! It is such a wonderful gift to have all your “people” together celebrating your marriage. Don’t be afraid to splurge on that photographer or videographer to capture all of the moments of the day and how GORGEOUS you look in your dress at Poffie Girls!”
Her advice for grooms-to-be is to “relax, have fun, and take in each moment you can because it all happens so quickly.”
Katie and Morgan, now Charlotte residents, enjoy nights in at their new home! Wishing them nothing but the best!
