James and Morgan were introduced by mutual friends during the beginning of Morgan’s freshman year at UGA and James’ senior year at UGA. James asked for Ciara, their mutual friend, to bring Morgan back to another party, and after that the rest is history! They dated for the rest of the year at UGA in Athens. When James decided to go to dental school at The Ohio State University, Morgan and James decided on three years of long distance. They both made a beaten path from Atlanta to Columbus, and vice versa while Morgan finished up undergrad at UGA in Athens. They filled the three years with adventures, mini trips in between Athens and Columbus, and tons of date nights. After undergrad, Morgan had the opportunity to attend grad school at OSU and the move wasn’t a question. When celebrating James’ dental school graduation at Amelia Island, James had secretly planned a proposal. Before dinner, Morgan and James went to take a walk on the beach and both of their families were hiding in the dunes! He arranged so that their parents and siblings could be there to witness and celebrate this next chapter with them! It was the best! Both James and Morgan have always known they were soulmates, and know God’s plan for them has always been each other.

Morgan and James’ wedding day really was one of the sweetest wedding days that I have photographed. The love between the two was so evident, they rarely left each other’s side the whole evening! They got married at Stonewall Manor, a gorgeous old home in downtown Cartersville, GA. Here is Morgan and James’ favorite memory from their wedding day: “During the ceremony we felt our friends and family so intimately close to us, and we know we wouldn’t be there, in that moment, without them. The entire day could not have been filled with more joy and happiness, the kind that gives your heart a warm and fuzzy like you’ve never felt. I wish I could hold onto that feeling forever!”
