From including her cute cocker spaniel pup to choosing a breathtaking Stella York gown, Real Bride Morgan slayed every detail of her gorgeous Minnesota nuptials! We love the way she incorporated her color palette and you’ll want to save all of the Bruzek’s photos for your own big day inspo! Read on:
It all started with the big question. Shawn took Morgan’s best friend to pick out her dream engagement ring. The football lovers had planned to attend a Minnesota Vikings game – but the night before, they toured the stadium. Shawn dropped to one knee and popped the question – talk about touchdown, Bruzek!
Following such a personal proposal, Morgan set out to find her dream dress! “I wanted to look elegant, classy and very bridal,” she said. “My shopping experience was great!” She found her gown at Bridal Traditions Omaha and deciding on the dress was an easy feat. “I stopped trying on the second I put on Style #6574; it was everything I was looking for.”
An updated and modern take on a sexy silhouette, this fit-and-flare wedding dress by Stella York is an absolute showstopper! Lace and tulle create a figure-slimming shape while shimmering beadwork and scalloped lace set this dress apart. A plunging neckline is adorned with bugle beads and shimmering water pearls that elevate this look. Thin shoestring straps are embellished with delicate beading and meet in the back, creating a unique, floating illusion style. A long train features hand-sewn, placed lace and a fully-finished hemline, giving drama and depth to the dress.
“Our wedding was very elegant,” Morgan mused. “We incorporated maroon, burgundy and gold as our colors. We have been dating for 9 years – high school sweethearts! We got married at our childhood church in our hometown.” One of the most common pieces of advice that brides give fellow brides-to-be is to cherish the moment, and that’s exactly what Morgan and Shawn did. “We had our videographer do a same-day edit that we got to watch at the reception. That was the most emotional part of the day for me! It really hit me that the day was almost over already; I love being able to relive it!”
Morgan’s favorite moment of the big day? “Watching my groom get emotional as I walked down the aisle. It was amazing!”
