Free-spirited couple, Morgan and Zach met in Los Angeles in 2012 while they were both training at a Muay Thai gym. The sport’s name literally translates to “Thai Boxing” and is similar to kickboxing.
Five years later, the butt-kicking pair became engaged on a trip to Thailand for Morgan’s birthday. They found themselves laid-over in Taiwan for three days where Zach popped the question in the back of a cab. According to Morgan, it’s a very long story with a very happy ending!
Morgan and Zach currently reside in San Diego with their beloved dogs Jiggly Puff and Schmidt. Sadly, Morgan’s family live on the opposite coast in North Carolina, so when they announced a family vacation/reunion at a gorgeous Ocean Isle beach house, the couple took the opportunity to “hijack” the trip and share their big day with loved ones.
They were married on July 17, 2019 with their toes in the white sand. Morgan was beautiful and ethereal in a boho lace dress designed by an Etsy artisan; while Zach looked dapper in khakis, a navy button-up and brown suspenders.
Elegant touches like lace, California wildflowers, vintage-inspired banners, and sparking white lights transformed the space beneath the raised beach house into the perfect cozy-casual reception venue.
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Morgan’s cousin created a delectable array of desserts including brownies, waffle cupcakes, and homemade cookies served with mini Mason jars of milk. It was sweet, casual, and adorable – just like Morgan and Zach!
The newlyweds plan to spend the first year of their marriage trying for a baby, and possibly traveling to South America for a new adventure before settling into family life.
Best wishes, Morgan and Zach! Thank you for choosing A Charmed Life Photography to help you capture and commemorate your special day!
