This wedding in a word: elegance. Morgan and Jon wanted a timeless, European wedding and chose The Bradford, which not only helped them achieve that dream setting, but also made the perfect photographic backdrop for this gorgeous couple’s ceremony and reception. 

If you have not been to The Bradford, you owe it to yourself to visit, or you can check out other weddings that Premier Party Planners has executed over the years, to include Kendall and Jarel, Bethany and Noah, Kimberly and Andrew among others. It is a place where you feel transported. 

Preparations & Firsts

Morgan chose a first look with her father, and he cried. She then had a first touch with Jon, saving the big reveal for the aisle. And when Jon saw, he too cried. 

The Ceremony

For this outdoor ceremony, the couple said their vows in front of a wooden arbor, draped with white fabric and a lovely white arrangement of florals that matched Morgan’s bouquet.

Live music from performed by the Tri String Quartet greeted guests as they were seated, and they played renditions of pop songs. For the vows, the family’s pastor officiated the ceremony, adding a personal touch. The couple also chose to light a unity candle as part of their vows. 

The Party

The reception was just that: a party. As the wedding party was introduced upon entering the scene, a 1990s or 2000 hit song was played. This was a huge hit with the guests and set the tone for the dance party to come.

The newlyweds left with big smiles, lots of well-wishes and sparklers. Congratulations Morgan and Jon!
