How long have you two been together?
Morgan: "Two years now. We met in March 2015, shortly after I moved to Birmingham."
How and when did Robert propose?
Morgan: "Our families took a joint trip to the beach over Memorial Day weekend. We had already been ring shopping and had the discussed the possibility of getting engaged, but Robert wanted to keep me in the dark and make it a surprise. I had secretly been hoping to get engaged over the long weekend, so we could celebrate with both of our families. Robert slow-played it, and finally took me on a walk along the beach at sunset on the last night. I had no idea it was coming (neither did our families), so everyone was pleasantly surprised and we had a great celebration together that night!"
Robert- what's one of the things you admire most about Morgan?
Robert: "One of the many things I admire about Morgan is her sweet, friendly and outgoing personality. I'm pretty introverted by nature, and I'm always amazed how easily she makes friends, and how everyone seems to love her. She helps me to get out and meet people and be social, and maybe I help to keep her calm and grounded. We're great complements to each other."
Morgan- what's one of the things you admire most about Robert?
Morgan: "How can I pick just one? I admire so many things about Robs. He is kind, loving and gentle. His patience and calming spirit is the perfect balance to my stress and impatience. As the saying goes, he is 'the calm to my storm.' He's also very encouraging and uplifting-- I'm so lucky to be his wife."
What was each of yall's favorite part of the day?
Morgan: My favorite part, aside from seeing Robert during our "first look," was celebrating our special day with our closest friends and family. It was so special to us that so many traveled to Birmingham for this weekend that we've been dreaming about for so long. Also, I loved seeing all of the little details come together. Kalee Baker has an amazing talent and her vision is what made this weekend an absolute dream. She was such a blessing. I also loved hearing reports from Robert throughout the morning from Kalee as she would go back and forth-- it gave me chill bumps :)."
Robert: "My favorite part of the wedding was walking back down the aisle arm-in-arm with Morgan, then hopping on a trolley with all of our bridal party (and maybe some champagne) and heading to the reception. It just felt really amazing to say, 'I do' to my best friend and then head to the biggest party of my life with all of my friends and family."
What's next for you two?
Morgan: "We delayed our honeymoon a few weeks-- we're headed to Italy at the end of March and we couldn't be more excited to explore a new country together."
