Morgan & Ross {Blue Ridge Mountain Club}

Morgan & Ross {Blue Ridge Mountain Club}

It seems that East Carolina University is a place that creates chemistry–or at least helps future love birds meet through the major! When Ross and Morgan locked eyes in a required pre-calculus class, it was the start of some serious feels and eventually led them to become best friends (cue the aww’s!). This darling duo remained in the friend zone throughout college until Ross decided to take a chance by inviting Morgan to be his plus-one to a wedding in the gorgeous West Virginia mountains. “We haven’t been apart a day since.” says Morgan. After a year of dating (ooh this is my favorite part!), the now alumnae found themselves leading an impromptu campus tour for their closest friends and family after the East Carolina vs. Virginia Tech game, where Ross led the way to the idyllic fountain at the center of ECU’s campus and dropped to one knee to propose to his beloved, officially stamping East Carolina in their hearts forever. That fateful weekend in West Virginia, plus a childhood of visiting the High Country, helped spark an inspiration for their own Blue Ridge Mountain Club wedding, featuring a blissful view, touches of rustic accents and pops of different shades of purple (the bride’s favorite). After the “I do’s” were shared, the couple led their loved ones to a reception filled with food nirvana, including–get this–a donut bar, creamy lobster firecracker rolls and a buffet loaded with a mouthwatering beef tenderloin and herb & dijon roasted chicken. While I’m over here drooling at these details and this menu, everyone wish this couple a lifetime of love, laughter, and winning East Carolina football games! Oh, and how freakin’ awesome was they firework exit by JECO Pyrotechnics Inc.
