Morgan + Jeremy
Little Rock // December 29, 2018
Move-in day at the University of Central Arkansas was also meeting day for college sweethearts Morgan Huff and Jeremy Light. “I was a freshman and he was a junior,” Morgan recalls. “We were both in Greek life at UCA, so we met through mutual friends.” After four years of dating, Jeremy proposed at Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs. “It was a very sweet moment for both of us. We were over the moon with joy and excitement,” Morgan says. Prior to the engagement, Jeremy asked for permission to marry Morgan and received a ring from her grandmother. “It was the first diamond my grandmother received from my grandfather, 11 years after they were married,” Morgan says of the cherished token.
During their nine months of planning, the couple envisioned an intimate and romantic celebration. After selecting a day in December, they visited Goodwin Manor as they searched for a venue. “We knew as soon as we stepped foot there that it was the place. We loved that it felt like a castle and was perched on a hill,” Morgan says. Here, the pair said “I do” with 110 close family and friends in attendance. Afterward, they hosted a cocktail hour complete with a lobster bisque for guests to enjoy prior to the seated dinner. Later, they shared their first dance to Adele’s “To Make You Feel My Love” before exiting the night through a line of well-wishers holding sparklers against the wintry night sky.

To provide additional heated square footage on the property, the couple had a tent placed on the grounds for dinner and dancing.
White flowers, including peonies and anemones, mixed with greenery for a timeless look.
DARK & DREAMY
Morgan notes she likes “dark colors and classic styles.” Thus, the intimate celebration was a true reflection of her.
Traditional wedding cake, strawberry, and chocolate layers comprised the three-tiered cake.
