Morgan and Zach were married at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Ala. on September 1. The bride wore a fitted strapless lace gown with a chapel length train and a lace-edged veil. She wore her hair in loose waves and carried a bouquet of chamomile, mums, spray roses, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids were outfitted in short navy blue lace dresses with various necklines and carried a bouquet just like the bride’s. Her groom looked dapper in a Jos A. Bank khaki suit complete with a patterned navy tie, and his groomsmen matched perfectly! The ceremony took place under a tree outside as 150 guests looked on in white folding chairs. “I wanted our wedding to be romantic yet rustic,” Morgan explained. “Because it was outdoors, I wanted the decor and flowers to be an extension of nature and not overpower the natural beauty of the gardens.” Guests then enjoyed cocktail hour where they drank pink beverages out of mason jars. They were seated at round tables with white linens and blush flower centerpieces, that sat atop burlap fabric. The wedding party sat at a long banquet table facing the other guests. After dinner, guests indulged in a small two-tiered cake and lots of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes! Since both the bride and groom met while in school at University of Alabama, they had a fun twist on the average send-off. “For our farewell, all the guests were given Alabama spirit shakers and we walked through with guests on both sides of us while singing the fight song,”  Morgan said. Talk about a memorable exit! See the full board here.
