Courtney Christian & Phillip Morgan

While the two may not see eye to eye on who made the first move the night they met in Buckhead, Courtney and Phillip both agree that the ultimately romantic surprise proposal was all him. What Courtney thought was a mother-daughter trip to Los Angeles turned out to be a surprise engagement trip to her favorite city in California as soon as she said “yes!”
Frosty-white arrangements of lush peonies, hydrangeas, roses and more adorned each table at the reception in the High Museum of Art, where guests danced the night away courtesy of an upbeat backdrop by SE Events. The bride kicked up her Jimmy Choos as she bounced around the party, new hubby in tow, in her stunning Jovani dress, and greeted her guests as they noshed on the delicious fare from Bold American Events catering.
WHAT THEY LEARNED
“Enjoy every moment of your special wedding day and all the festivities that come with getting engaged. It goes by very quickly. Try not to worry about the small stuff,” says Courtney.
After a night to remember at the High, the couple went on a 10-day cruise though the Eastern Caribbean, venturing to the paths less paved on each romantic island visited.
