There was nothing that could stand in the way of this magical and romantic Morgan Hill wedding. Brianna and Omar were one of many couples this year who had to change several things about their wedding day. However, looking through these images, we were found speechless because of the sheer beauty, yes, but also the immense genuine joy that was experienced throughout the day. Adore venue, The View at Morgan Hill, hosted the wedding and accommodated with installing the most luxurious and romantic tent for an outdoor wedding. That paired with florals by Allium Floral Design, another Adore vendor, the views were truly nothing short of magical.

How did you meet?
We met in college at Penn State through a mutual friend.
What was your proposal like?
Our proposal was magical. My husband knows that Christmas is my favorite time of year. That being said we had planned a trip to NYC (which is where I’m originally from) with all of our friends and we went to go see the Rockefeller tree. Right there, during my favorite time of year, surrounded by all of our friends, he popped the question! I was surprised because it was such a public place and he’s not a big public person but it meant the world to me and being surrounded by friends.
What was most helpful on the day of the wedding?
The most helpful on the day of the wedding was having my girls and my mom by my side. Things did go wrong but they all helped me through it and helped to not let it ruin our day. Also, the fact of telling myself we’re married now and that’s all that matters really helped too. It helped me focus on not caring about the little things that went wrong.
What was something fun that you did with your wedding party?
Something fun I did with my wedding party was toasted and jamming out with each other while we were getting ready after I gave them all their gifts.
What surprised you?
What surprised me was the fact that we had decided not to do wedding day gifts but as always my husband surprised me with a BEAUTIFUL necklace as a gift anyway.
What was most helpful in the planning process?
The most helpful in the planning process was being able to bounce ideas and suggestions off of my family and closest friends. It’s always good to have an outside opinion to brainstorm ideas and Incase you’re indecisive!
What was your favorite moment of the wedding day (if you had to pick just one)?
Favorite moment that’s really hard it would either have to be our first look or the moment they pronounced us husband and wife!
What made you cry?
What made me cry was the vows my husband and I exchanged during our first look. Our first look meant everything to us because we had a moment to ourselves just us and got to express how we truly felt without the pressure of having everyone else around.
Leading up, what moment was most important to you?
The most important to us was our first look. We wanted to have that intimate moment between the two of us with no one around. We knew it would be the only moment we really had with each other by ourselves through the night so it was really important to have that moment where we could read our vows and soak it all in just the two of us. It was really important to have that moment captured for sure.
What was going through your mind when you saw your significant other for the first time that day?
I could not stop saying omg it’s finally here I get to marry my best friend after 7 years together! I kept thinking this is it we made it we’re finally doing the damn thing haha! It almost felt so surreal and not real but it was!
What was your favorite design detail?
My favorite design detail had to have been my arch for the ceremony and how we were able to repurpose its beauty behind our sweetheart table!
What made you laugh? Did you have an unforgettable funny moment?
What made me laugh/our guests laugh was when we were saying our traditional vows during the ceremony. There’s was a part where my husband messed up when repeating the vows but it was very comical and it just made even more special and memorable.
What would you do differently?
Honestly, I don’t think I would do anything differently. Despite the fact that our wedding was rescheduled due to COVID, I feel as if things happened the way they were supposed to even on our rescheduled date. We actually ended up loving having everything outdoors rather than what we originally had planned. I mean everything happens for a reason right!
What advice would you give to couples who are currently in the planning process?
My advice is just let things go. Don’t stress or worry about anything, it will all work out the way it’s supposed to. Nothing goes perfectly but on the day of the wedding the little things won’t matter.
What is something you wished someone would have told you in preparation for your wedding day?
I wish someone would of told me how many directions I would be pulled in. We knew we would be talking to a bunch of people but I felt I was always talking to vendors about going to take pictures and then everything was moving so fast. I couldn’t even stop to think if I got all of the pictures I wanted and things like that.
