The Love Story
You could say that Morgan and Tyler were an instant match! After meeting on Match.com and going on several dates, Morgan sensed there was something special about Tyler and was starting to fall in love. Fast forward a few months, Tyler moved to Dallas to be with Morgan and these two lovebirds have been inseparable ever since!
The Planning Experience
Both Morgan and Tyler knew they wanted a destination wedding because they wanted to do something special with their closest loved one. Many of their loved ones were so excited to join in on their journey to paradise and it was the best vacation/ memory they could have dreamed of. When it came to deciding their dream destination Pinterest played a huge role! They searched through plenty of photos and countless wedding albums before they decided on the beautiful Riu Guanacaste!
To make their loved ones feel extra special, Morgan and Tyler made custom gift bags for all their guests! Each one included mosquito repellent bracelets, glow sticks & bubbles, koozies, Costa Rican coffee, gum & candy, custom door hangers and more. With the help of Pinterest and their on-site wedding coordinator, their wedding vision came to life with gorgeous tropical flowers and custom decor. To make their wedding day even more special, Tyler's sister, Brenna, was the one to marry them! Her heartfelt vows and remarks are moments these newlyweds will never forget. Morgan recalls, "It was truly beautiful and we are so thankful for her willingness to marry us."
Morgan looks back at walking down the aisle with her dad and seeing Tyler as one of her fondest wedding day memories. "Nothing can compare to that moment of officially being pronounced husband and wife and having a partner forever," recalls Morgan. When describing their destination wedding experience, she describes it as fun, cherished, blessed and loved. It's hard to pick just three when describing the best day of your life!
Advice For Future Couples
Morgan and Tyler advise any future couples that want a destination wedding to trust the process and don't stress. Having a destination wedding takes the stress off of the typical wedding process. You will save lots of money and enjoy a vacation all while having the best experience of your life. It's the best decision we ever made!! All of our guests still keep raving about it too, so yay us!
