In May 2023, love bloomed and vows were exchanged amidst the picturesque setting of The Estate at River Run, as Morgan and John embarked on their journey into marital bliss together. Their wedding was nothing short of a fairytale, filled with exquisite details and heartfelt moments that left a lasting impression on all who attended.

The bride captivated all with not one, but two stunning gowns that accentuated her elegance and grace. Each gown seemed to embody the essence of the day – one for the ceremony and another for the lively festivities that followed.

As guests arrived, they were greeted by a color scheme reminiscent of a springtime garden, with hues of lavender and delicate spring colors adorning every corner. Touches of greenery added a natural charm, blending seamlessly with the lush surroundings of The Estate.

What truly set Morgan and John’s celebration apart was their innovative use of the venue’s spaces. The Front Lawn played host to a heartfelt ceremony, where vows were exchanged under the open sky, surrounded by loved ones.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the front of the Estate and throughout the Grand Foyer before being led to the Wedgewood Ballroom and Brick Terrace for dinner. The perfect spring weather provided a delightful backdrop for guests to enjoy an outdoor meal on the terrace, with the warm setting sun casting a soft, golden glow over the celebration.

But the magic didn’t end there. As night fell, the Tuscan Ballroom was transformed into a Miami-style nightclub, pulsating with energy and excitement. The reception was a celebration like no other, with music, laughter, and dance filling the air.

Indeed, Morgan and John’s wedding was a testament to their love and creativity. It was a day filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable memories, made all the more perfect by the idyllic setting of The Estate at River Run. In a grand finale, Morgan and John bid farewell to their reception in impeccable style, whisked away in a vintage Bentley, as they embarked on the first journey of their new life together.
