Vanessa Morgan and Michael Kopech’s wedding
In July 2019, Michael Kopech proposed Vanessa during a camping trip to Havasu Galls, Arizona. They walked down the aisle on 4th February 2020 at the Historic Walton House in the countryside of Homestead, Florida. She revealed,
“It was a fairy-tale dream. It was under this incredible waterfall. We were engaged for six months and our entire wedding was planned in just one with our planner.”
They enlisted Ottawa-based planner Tami Varma, who brought the couple to the Historic Walton House in Florida. Their wedding venue was tropical with monkeys, parrots, swans, flamingos, and horses on-site. She wore a beautiful Eisen-Stein Bridal wedding gown from Israel. Her finch gown had long-sleeve and form-fitted. The designer Eisen-Stein said,
“The high neckline accented with an open back and sheerness throughout made for a daring and sexy, yet sophisticated one-of-a-kind look,”
She wore a white feathered stiletto which was a surprise gift from her castmate Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa designed by Gianvito Rossi. Vanessa’s brother Jeff Morgan was the wedding officiant. She was escorted down the aisle by her father, while Kopech was accompanied by his mother and father. Morgan also performed a song Beautiful Crazy with Kopech’s father.
“I had seven bridesmaids and four bridesmen. I wanted the girls to match our color scheme… They wore burnt orange silk dresses and the bridesmen wore khaki pants with a white dress shirt, suspenders and a burnt orange bow tie.”
