Mr. and Mrs. Jim Myers Morgan
While Meg Myers Morgan may have been anticipating a slice of frosted cake at her Te Kei’s birthday party two years ago, little did she know exactly what that evening would entail. Before leaving for the restaurant, Jim Myers Morgan presented Meg with a cake, but rather than confetti sprinkles or candle numbers, a small box and the icing-scrawled words “will you marry me” adorned the top. Although Meg was certainly surprised, she wasn’t speechless; she said yes.
After over a year of planning later, Meg was back at the party site the night of the proposal, Te Kei’s, for her bachelorette party, which progressed to Vintage 1740 wine bar and an overnight at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Jim held his bachelor party at Kilkenny’s Irish Pub.
On October 4, 2008, rich autumn shades of grass green, earthy brown, spice orange and deep plum complimented the natural beauty of the pecan grove adjacent to the bride’s parents’ home in Vinita, Okla. 275 people gathered at the grove, where Meg’s brother and sister were wed, respectively.
At the reception, held under a large white tent overlooking the wedding site, Jim sported an oversized Mad Hatter’s hat during the cutting of the couple’s “Alice in Wonderland”-themed cake. While performing, the lead singer of Tulsa’s Earl Clark and Spectrum Band donned the whimsical hat the rest of the night. The couple gave their guests little sacks of pecans to commemorate the wedding’s location.
Now residing in Tulsa, the newly married Morgans honeymooned in Napa Valley, Calif., and Oregon. Jim works as a copy and technical writer for T.D. Williamson, and Meg is a full-time graduate student and research assistant at the University of Oklahoma.
Note: The couple legally adjusted to have matching middle names rather than hyphenating their last name.
