Morgan and Stevie met in Ludington, MI. They both grew up spending time during the summer at Epworth Heights in Ludington, MI and were friends (and so were their parents) for many years before the two started dating. Their wedding took place at Toledo Country Club, which perfectly complimented the classic and understated elegance of their wedding.
In December 2019, the couple took the day off work to enjoy Christmas activities in Chicago to avoid the large crowds on the weekends. It was a warm December day and Steve suggested they walk downtown along the lakeshore path. He proposed in a spot along the path that Morgan had previously mentioned was her favorite view of the city. She said, “We didn’t tell anyone we were engaged until later that evening and enjoyed the entire day together, just the two of us, in Chicago!”
Morgan and Stevie had a very relaxed and laid-back day. After getting ready that morning, they got dressed, had a first look and got all of their portraits out of the way, wedding party photos, and family photos. After their church ceremony, they had a ribbon wand exit, exiting to a classic car and heading back to the reception. Since all of their portraits had been done earlier that day, they attended their cocktail hour and then after dinner, the dance floor opened up and the live band kept everyone out there all night! They had light-up tambourines and microphones for guests as it got dark and during their last song, Don’t Stop Believin’, guests were surprised with confetti canons.
It was quite an amazing day their guests will never forget! Congrats, Morgan and Stevie! What a fun celebration!
