Morgan and William’s story began in January of 2016 when Morgan performed at an open mic night. “As usual I arrived late and ended up being one of the last people to play that night. Billy had already left by the time I got there, but his mom had taken a video of me singing and posted it to Facebook. Billy saw the video, and messaged me a few days later introducing himself.”
The couple got engaged on Halloween in 2019. “I love Halloween and it’s tradition to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show, so he invited me over to the bakery where he works to hang out since we’re good friends with the owners. We’re all hanging out and he tells me to check these cookies they made today. I go over to the window and there are three cookies there with the lyrics, ‘The river was deep but I swam it, the future is ours so let’s plan it, so please don’t tell me to can it, I have one thing to say and that’s, Marry Me?’ and he got down on one knee and proposed.”
Morgan and William had originally planned for a June wedding. “We realized COVID wasn’t going away so we went ahead and decided on October. We already had a small guest list but we cut it shorter and really kept it to close family and friends. We had it in our backyard, where we have 15 acres in the Catoctin Mountains. It was perfect.”
25 guests joined the couple on their wedding day. “We kept it super simple and just about us. My three-year-old son walked me down the aisle. I wore my late grandmother’s cameo ring to carry her with me as we got married under an arbor in the yard.
