Did the weather cooperate on the wedding day?

“It was absolutely gorgeous.  The day felt like early summer - it was sunny and warm, but had a lovely breeze to keep everyone comfortable.  Julep Point is a beautiful area for a Fairhope wedding, and the guests were able to enjoy the sunset over Mobile Day during cocktails and dancing.”

What made the wedding venue special?

“Fairhope weddings are always special, and The Grand Hotel is a gorgeous location.  The property is massive - there is a large lagoon circled by majestic oaks, dripping with Spanish moss.  It is like something out of a fairytale, with ducks padding about, flowers bursting forth, and the waters of the bay lapping in the background.  Most of Morgan and Joe’s guests were staying on the property, making it the perfect spot for a destination wedding.”

Was the exit exciting and unique?

“Yes!  At the end of the evening, all of the wedding guests lined up on the pier and released white balloons while cheering!  It was such a fun time and I loved seeing how much love Morgan and Joe received from friends and family who had traveled from great distances to celebrate.”

What was unique about the bridal party's attire?

Morgan chose the prettiest, gold sequined dresses for her bridesmaids.  They were flattering and glam and still super classy (I secretly want one!).  They were the perfect complement for the beautiful wedding that Morgan and her mom, Lori, planned!
