If Whiskey Were a Wedding…

This is how it would be. Morgan and Keith took their love of whiskey and turned it into a wedding. “What would whiskey do” as we should say. Morgan and Keith found their vibe, whiskey lounge, with deep fall colored decor and florals and it was absolutely stunning! With robust burgundy, orange flowers, dark greens, with pops of dainty petal pink and vintage like pieces throughout; you are sure feel like you’ve traveled into a secret Jay Gatsby lounge. Photographer and videographer, John Myers, carefully crafted all the video and images to really showcase all the intricate and special details for Morgan and Keith’s wedding. Take a look below!

Tell us about your engagement!

Morgan: We were long distance for one year while I finished my medical training in New York. Keith came up just before Christmas and said we were going to pick out a gift for me. He took me to this amazing used and antique book store and said pick anything I wanted. While I was looking through shelves in one empty aisle, I turned around to show him a book and he was down on one knee!

What was the vision for your wedding? What was your theme and what inspired it?

Morgan: We are big into whiskey, so we decided to go for a “whiskey lounge” vibe, while also being a little rustic, a little moody fall, and a little vintage flair.

Can you share any special moments or highlights from your wedding day?

Morgan: The best parts of the day were the little moments we built into the event that were either extremely “us” or just a private moment away from the crowd. We had a whiskey pouring unity ceremony, combining two different whiskies into one mini barrel. We had a private first look, secluded away for the cocktail hour with our signature cocktails (Jack Rose for him and Sazerac for me!), we stepped away to cut the cake instead of bringing everyone inside, and had a private last dance while our guests lined up out front for the farewell. Having these little moments helps ground the entire day, and this way we remember every single bit of it!

What are some tips you can share with other brides planning their weddings?

Morgan: Decide which few things are your splurges and what you can pull back on. Schedule some partner time throughout the day to just check in and enjoy the moment. Have a pre-wedding event (can be super low key and casual) so you can hug some necks and say hellos beforehand — you might not have time to run around to every guest on the wedding day. And ask the venue to pack up some cake! We had the best late night snack because of that.

Absolutely stunning work from this whole team. Thank you Morgan and Keith for allowing us to share your wedding and thank you John Myers for providing the stunning content as well! Check out more real weddings here!
