Morgan and Travis are the kind of people you see together, and they make you smile. So it came as no surprise that at their beautiful La Mariposa Resort Wedding everyone was smiling. Seriously, everyone. From the bridal party to the staff who were setting up the reception hall tables. Everyone felt the love and joy that surrounded the bride and groom.
I’m actually going to share a story with you from Samanatha’s (the Maid of Honor) toast, which shows how Morgan and Travis lean on each other and support each other. So, to set the scene Morgan was on a girls trip and Travis was remodeling the guest bathroom when he called her. The bathroom had started flooding and Travis called Morgan.
“During the entire conversation, Morgan is just calmly sitting there, repeating what Travis is saying, offering a few tid-bits of advice, smiling and kind of rolling her eyes a little… and when he finally hung up Morgan just sat back and laughed to herself. Then she tells her girlfriends “it’s fine he’ll figure it out.” She wasn’t worried one little bit.
So I think there are two lessons here:
Travis called Morgan, and I am going to say from the pitch of his voice that she was his first call. He probably knew that she couldn’t help him. But he called her anyway. I think that says a lot. When he was frustrated, and at his wits end and needed someone to talk through it all… Morgan was his first thought.
In those moments of chaos you can really see a person. When the ‘fit hits the shan,’ and they have the choice to be mad or to be kind, but they don’t really get the chance to think about how they’ll react, that’s when you get to see who they truly are. Morgan’s first instinct was to be calm, kind, helpful and laugh about it, when it would have been so easy to be mad, and unforgiving.”
Ultimately, Travis did fix the flooding and the bathroom looks great. Together these two work as a team in all aspects of life. I’m sure that as they continue to grow together it with be with love and laughter.
Morgan and Travis, thank you For trusting me with your special day. Seeing your La Mariposa Resort Wedding come to life with the help of friends and family was truly amazing. I can’t wait to see where life takes the two of you! Big hugs and lots of love!
And of course none of this would be possible without the amazing creative team!
