Morgan and Sharkey

While preparing for Morgan and Sharkey’s wedding at Sundara, I learned a lot about these two! I also learned how much heart was put into their big day!!! There were so many personal elements that they put into their wedding day. I LOVED it!!! 🙂 One special touch were the framed quotes throughout the reception. During Morgan and Sharkey’s relationship, there was a period when Morgan lived in Spain. Being long-distance is never fun. To help them get through that season, Morgan would send Sharkey different quotes every morning for him to wake up to. They picked their favorites to share throughout their wedding! Gah! So sweet! 

Another sweet and personal touch was their cake topper. The night of their engagement, Morgan saved the corks from the wine they drank while in Venice. It was a good thing too! They made the cutest cake toppers out of them! So sweet! I love how every part of their wedding day was so well-thought out. I know that when they look back on their day it will make things even more special! 

These two are so sweet and I am so thankful I could photograph their day! Their personal vows during the ceremony had me in tears and everyone else too! Morgan and Sharkey are so genuine and care for each other so much! I’m thankful to know them! 🙂 

Morgan and Sharkey, I hope you’re having the best time in Ireland! Enjoy adventuring with each other! Love you guys and I hope y’all enjoy my many favorites from your day!
