I haven’t met Morgan or Matt in person until shortly before their wedding. They both live in Virginia and planned a Utica, New York wedding from afar with the amazing help of Bella’s Event Planning. I was very happy to see huge smiling faces that were very excited to get married! I was also happy to finally hear their stories of how they met, dated, fell in love, and of course, decided to get married. It was a beautiful day to watch these two become husband and wife.
We started our day at family homes with perfect weather. And I told Morgan this before, after seeing her family’s golden doodle dogs, I’m dedicated to eventually getting one! Be sure to check out the bow ties that they’re wearing, so cute! After everyone got dressed and beautified we headed to St. Mary of Mount Carmel for their ceremony. I still can’t get over how beautiful her sister’s singing voice is. Then the photos began! We went to downtown Utica for more urban looking backgrounds. I have to thank the wedding party for being amazing and going along with all of my ideas! Our second stop was Forest Hills Cemetery which has magnificent stone arches. Such a beauty to observe in our Utica area.
The party began at Valley View Golf Course. I walked into a Tiffany Blue heaven for their reception space! And the flowers, as always from Coriale Flowers, was on point. And to make a perfect day even more perfect, one of my favorite people to work with, Kenny the Promo Guy was DJing and getting everyone to bust a move. Not to mention Morgan and Matt stunned everyone with a choreographed first dance! I am just so happy for these two and it was a joy being able to document their first day as husband and wife. Congratulations, Morgan and Matt!
