The Newtons | 3.7.15 | Former UK Quarterback Marries His Dream Girl

Laura + Morgan - Lexington, Ky

Hilton Downtown Lexington

March 7th was an exciting day for former University of Kentucky wildcat & quarterback, Morgan Newton. 

The day he would finally marry the beautiful Laura Workman & get to call the woman of his dreams his wife!

On a snowy, chilly day we traveled to downtown Lexington, Ky to celebrate with Morgan & Laura. The streets of downtown Lexington were busy with a sea of blue & anxious wildcat fans who were on their way to Rupp Arena to cheer on the wildcats...but the REAL EXCITEMENT was next door in the downtown Hilton where Laura & Morgan were getting ready for their beautiful wedding day!

We arrived to the suite where Laura, her mom, & her bridesmaids were all getting beautified by the talented hair & make-up artists- Pink Lou Lou & Stephanie Moore. Each of these ladies were naturally stunning...but Allison, Dana, & Stephanie worked magic with their hair & makeup. Each lady looked fabulous! 

Laura stepped into her beautiful wedding gown as her bridesmaids each assisted her in their own, unique way. Helping with earrings, shoes, gifts; you name it! It's so important to have your best girls by your side on a wedding day. Ones who will laugh with you, cry with you, & are willing to get on their hands & knees...in a floor length dress...to put your shoes on for you! ;) 
Now that's what we call a true friend! 

Meanwhile, Morgan was just a few levels above getting ready in a condo with his groomsmen. Likewise, gents, it's important to have the men who mean the most to you alongside you on your big day. Those guys who have been there for you through thick and thin, who continuously show their support for you, & who will joke around with you on a day that's meant to be the most FUN! & that's exactly what Morgan's groomsmen did! 

Once everyone was ready & all final adjustments were made...the bridal party & a very anxious bride & groom loaded up into a bus {to where the groom & bride were still unable to see one another} & set out for their first look destination at The Grand Reserve. 

This is where we need to brag on Conrhod Zonio Photography...on a complete whim, keeping the day of schedule in mind, he was able to choose this nearby location for a beautiful first look & bridal party photo opportunity. Everything went super smoothly & the backdrop was absolutely stunning with the pops of purple! Laura & Morgan shared a sweet moment together & off we went to the church...it was finally time to get these two hitched! 

We arrived at the First United Methodist Church of downtown Lexington; a church full of beautiful architecture & character. Guests & loved ones began trickling in one by one &, before we knew it, Laura, the most stunning bride, was walking down the isle to her handsome groom, Morgan. 

Their ceremony was sweet, personal, & God-honoring. What a joy to witness! 

After their officiant announced them as  Mr. & Mrs. Morgan Newton...guests were welcomed over to the Hilton for a cocktail hour.

Summer Cooper & the entire Hilton staff did an incredible job decorating the grand ballroom. The gorgeous center pieces & florals by Crist Creona were stunning. A candy bar for guests to help themselves to was the sweetest added touch to their reception! 

The celebration of the love between Laura & Morgan was an absolute blast to get to be a small part of! We are so thankful you chose us to share in your special day with you & we pray for many years filled with as much joy as was experienced on your beautiful wedding day!
