Meet Morgan and Shawn.
Morgan and Shawn tied the knot at Autumn Oaks Event Center in October 2017. Fall wedding season is my favorite time and theirs was absolutely perfect! It was a beautiful Autumn day for an outdoor wedding. They had an intimate outdoor ceremony followed by a gorgeous indoor reception with their loved ones.
How did the Bride and Groom meet?
Morgan is from Midland, Tx and Shawn is from Weatherford, Tx. Morgan attended Texas Tech University and graduated in 2011. Shawn is a Lieutenant Firefighter in Big Spring. The couple met through mutual friends. Morgan worked with the wife and Shawn worked with the husband. Their coworkers thought the two had similar personalities and introduced them. In Morgan’s words- “boy were they right!”
A year and a half later, Shawn popped the question! He had big plans for an engagement in Durango, Colorado while on a ski trip until plans fell through and the couple wasn’t able to go . That didn’t stop Shawn though! He planned to take Morgan out to dinner. When he arrived at there house, he rang the door bell and quickly got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She excitedly said yes!
Favorite Wedding Memories
Morgan says their favorite memories are “all the friends and family coming! It was so great seeing them. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and I loved finally seeing all of our planning come together and turn out so well!” Her favorite moment is “during the ceremony the Preacher asked for the rings… Well I forgot Shawn’s in the Bridal Suite and I was still wearing mine so we had to pretend when exchanging them. It was funny and kind of showed how nervous we both were!”
The couple started their new life together with a honeymoon in Jamaica relaxing by the pool and beach, spending time with each other.
Autumn Oaks Event Center was honored to host Morgan and Shawn’s wedding and enjoyed working with this sweet couple. It was a wonderful day. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
