This wedding video is a must watch! Jake & Morgan’s wedding was full of surprises both for their guests and themselves! Guests gathering in the courtyard at Race & Religious found mixed seating including vintage chairs, sofas & church pews. As Morgan & Jake were pronounced husband & wife, they were showered in confetti as the gate they stood in front of for their ceremony swung open to reveal a second line band! As they led their guests on a raucous parade, Race & Religious was transformed into their stunning reception including a screen to showcase a surprise Morgan set up for their first dance. Morgan & Jake love to sing, play music & record videos together so their first dance was actually a music video of her singing their song. Jake was so in the moment that it took him a little bit to realize the music video was of his wife singing their song to him! The look on his face when he realized is priceless! We also used lyrics from their song on the chair signs for their sweetheart table.
In addition to an amazing menu that night, they also surprised their guests with several specialty stations including popcorn with flavors & toppings, snowballs, coffee & spa water to make sure there was something for everyone. Their wedding also featured a photo wall that had wedding photos of their family members hanging on it & cutouts for guests to stick their heads through for pictures. Guests also had fun with the photo booth & custom Jake & Morgan temporary tattoos. Finally, when your wedding coincides with mom’s birthday, you have a cake for her & sing Happy Birthday at the cake cutting. Their amazing wedding cake had Cupid’s arrow shot right through it & they had a Swiss cake roll as their secondary cake. They ended the evening by releasing lanterns & having a sparkler sendoff into their new life together. This adorable couple rocked their wedding in the most amazing way!
