Real Wedding: Brianna & Morgan
Brianna and Morgan’s love story is that of a modern-day romance. Brianna, an independent consultant and Morgan, a project manager, first met on the app Tinder. She thought he was handsome and shy, and he thought she was outgoing with a great smile. Several years later, Morgan proposed on New Year’s Eve with the help of the couple’s dog Milo!
Brianna and Morgan knew right away that they wanted to have a destination wedding. They wanted to travel somewhere they had never been before, and Panama’s beautiful beaches and lush rainforests provided an ideal destination for their big day. Their love for RIU Resorts made Riu Playa Blanca an easy choice as their resort!
On January 18th, 2018, Brianna and Morgan exchanged their vows on the beautiful beach of Riu Playa Blanca in front of 40 of their closest family and friends. The moment Brianna walked down the aisle was Morgan’s favourite part of their day – and they both loved Brianna’s grandma’s surprise speech at their pool bar reception! Both the ceremony and reception space were decorated beautifully in their elegant colour scheme of navy blue, white, silver and light pink.
