Morgan and Zack have known each other for most of their lives as their families are longtime friends. But what brought them together as a couple was the day Morgan got her car stuck in the sand in Wildwood, New Jersey! Zack was there and saved the day! And the two have been inseparable and in love ever since.
Zack made sure to propose in the spot where their relationship began, but actually not there in the sand… He’s a pilot and Morgan loves flying with him (as well as with her father and brother). So one beautiful afternoon, he took Morgan flying and flew right over the spot where he rescued her car from the sand. There, he asked her to be his wife… and she said, ‘yes’! Then, he took the plane over his parents’ house where their families were all celebrating and waiting for them!
Naturally, Morgan and Zack’s wedding would take place at the shore. The two got ready for their day in their family homes in Cape May Court House and Wildwood. Zack relaxed that morning with his groomsmen, then dressed into his classic black tux with assistance from his brother. They all looked so handsome, fully dressed to the nines on this special day.
Morgan was such a stunning bride, wearing an elegant, creamy silk strapless Amsale gown with a princess silhouette and a pearl and rhinestone beaded belt. It had a beautiful sash in back, too… and real pockets! Morgan accessorized with pearl earrings, a sparkling hair clip which she wore in her lovely relaxed updo and a long gauzy veil for the ceremony. And we absolutely loved her fun aqua blue socks!
The bridal party, with Morgan’s matrons of honor and bridesmaids in a soothing champagne color, carried such beautiful bouquets from Blooms by Country Greenery that were filled with lush ivory and blush flowers and greenery.
It was time then to head to St. Ann Church of the Notre Dame De La Mer Parish in Wildwood for Morgan and Zack’s wedding ceremony. They had a beautiful, traditional ceremony officiated by Father Paul Galetto. And it was so sweet to see how much joy the two had when reciting their vows.
It was a true pleasure to work alongside photographer Kaitlin Noel and her second photographer, Chris. They took beautiful, romantic photos of the couple strolling on the beach at Queen Street and then captured more with the party at their reception venue.
Morgan and Zack’s beautiful reception took place at Willow Creek Winery & Farm in West Cape May. This enchanting venue is situated inside a 50-acre vineyard, the rustic chic grand room featuring a stone fireplace, exposed wooden ceiling beams and sparkling tiered chandeliers. The blush and ivory floral arrangements and flickering candlelight made the atmosphere even more delightful.
The newlyweds were introduced and entered the rustic ballroom for their first, very romantic, dance together. We were treated to lovely toasts from Morgan’s two sisters, her matrons of honor, and from Zack’s best man and brother. They were so touching and so beautifully delivered. We especially loved how Zack’s brother said he was excited for them to one day look back on this special day and their time together since and smile on the life they’ve shared. Then during dinner, we adored the dances Morgan had with her father and Zack with his mother.
The party afterwards was fantastic as Monte Carlo from EBE Talent kept everyone out on the dance floor all night! And Morgan’s family was sure to have the Fudgy Wudgy ice cream cart there serving guests their sweet treats!
We’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Morgan and Zack on their fantastic wedding day ‘down the shore’. Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds as they continue to build a wonderful life together.
