It was as though Walt Disney himself had created a place of wonder and majesty for Elisha and Morgan’s fantasy wedding that was nothing less than MAGICAL! Some of the images seem as though they were taken from a storybook, indeed, from a story we are about to share. But I warn you that you’ll forget all about Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty if you keep reading. Because these two stunningly beautiful women had a wedding day that would make princesses jealous and princes envious. Many of you may just be asking your spouses for a “Wedding Day Do-Over.”
Elisha & Morgan’s whirlwind romance started long before that magical day at the Addison in Boca Raton, Florida, where they pronounced their eternal love before family and friends. High School is where this love story truly began to take shape. Even though they ran with different crowds, Morgan, with the”Band Geeks,” and Elisha with the “Cool Kids,” that wouldn’t stop their worlds from colliding years later. As captain of the dance team, Morgan somehow managed to dance her way onto Elisha’s radar and soon, into her heart. Even beyond graduation, Cupid wouldn’t allow these high school acquaintances to stray too far from a love that was meant to be.
Though they would go on to separately travel the world until social media came along, and Elisha, but more so, Morgan, used it to keep tabs on each other. However, one day, fate, in the form of a mutual friend’s engagement party, brought them together again. The rest, shall we say, is history because they have been inseparable ever since. What began as high school acquaintances has since transformed into an everlasting love story for the ages.
Elisha & Morgan
Now you may be wondering who of these two “Popped The Question?” We can confirm that it was, in fact, Elisha, after first planning an elaborate over-the-top proposal, who opted for a more intimate surprise proposal to Morgan. Elisha recalls, “It was a random Tuesday night in February of 2019 when Morgan came home from work. Morgan is one of those people who gets extremely excited about surprise gifts. So when she arrived home, I told her I had something for her and to sit on the couch with her eyes closed while I get it. Morgan sat patiently, all giddy with her eyes still closed, waiting on the “surprise.” Elisha goes on to say, “When Morgan opened her eyes, I was on one knee, asking for her heart forever.” A “Band Geek,” a “Cool Kid,” and after about 30 minutes of “ugly crying,” a RING! This is the MAGIC that makes LOVE happen!
The wedding day was all about the details. Initially planned for Mother’s Day on May 5, 2020, to honor the 10th anniversary of Elisha’s mothers passing, the wedding was delayed until October 4, 2020, due to COVD-19. Although they had initially planned to handle the details of the wedding personally, Elisha and Morgan assembled the magical dream team of MBM Events & Design, Munoz Photography, Eskimo Love Stories, and other fabulous wedding vendors to create their unforgettable and truly magical wedding day.
The scene was set, and the magical spells were cast. The wedding theme was “A Night in Old Miami,” and not one detail was left undone! The decor was amazing, the place settings were flawless, and the reception hall was breath-taking. And, let’s talk about this picture-perfect couple! Morgan wore a stunningly elegant ruffled white Lena Berisha mermaid fitted wedding gown, accented with a diamond hairpin and white vail. Elisha chose a classy white tuxedo with a black shawl collar & black accents and black slacks from Garcon Couture.
As the first wedding venue in the United States to host a same-sex ceremony after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, the Historic Addison was the perfect backdrop for Elisha and Morgan’s storybook wedding. With picturesque settings both inside and out, it gave friends and family lots to talk about.
Elisha and Morgan, thank you for sharing your story with Black Gay Weddings, and congratulations as you begin your magical journey as wife and wife.
