Mike and Morgan’s modern Citizen wedding

Yay! It has been way too long since I posted a full wedding! Well, the hiatus is over and we’ve got a really good one to share! Working with Mike and Morgan was so fun! We got to know them by working with them on invitation and escort card design before the wedding. You can check out the design in our previous post. They are both kind, smart, down-to-earth, and of course, so very much in love. Their wedding at the Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento was so nice! My day started in the governor’s suite at the Citizen with the girls getting ready.

Morgan was looking SO beautiful!

While I was busy with the ladies, Geoff was doing his thing with the guys.

Then it was time to get married! The ceremony was held on the metropolitan terrace at the Citizen. So lovely, so much love.

LOVE the look on Mike’s face when he saw Morgan coming down the aisle.

I love that Mike and Morgan wanted to stop in for some coffee while we were doing portraits!

100% sweetness.

After some portraits, it was reception time! There were so many cute little details Mike and Morgan did a fantastic job!

These are the escort cards we designed! Morgan and Mike made the cute sign.

This have got to be my favorite idea for favors ever! Each table number was named after a place, event, object, or story that was important to Mike and Morgan’s relationship. The favors for that table were based on that. They now live in Scranton, PA and felt at home the first time they found a new favorite coffee shop. So that table gets little jars of coffee!

The crackerjacks are what Mike used to bribe Morgan into liking baseball games.

So many different favors for so many stories! And each one was adorned with the cute monogram we designed for them.

Why yes, we do have important reasons to be on our phones at our wedding…


Morgan and her dad were so cute!

Party time! What a crazy fun group of guests! Mike and Morgan even had us bring The Shot Spot, our awesome photo booth! So fun!

One of our favorite things about the Citizen is this VEIW! We had to steal Mike and Morgan away from their party for some nighttime balcony pics.

And who could resist a quick jump on the bed!

Cue big sparkler exit!!

Congratulations Mike and Morgan! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your wedding day. We had so much fun working with you!

LOVE this wedding – of course all the polka dots are helping, but the details just put everything right over the edge into awesomeness! The bridal party shot in the bar lounge – love.
