You’ll see her on billboards all over the greater Houston area. Meet Morgan Zimmerman, the Billboard Bride.
Morgan Zimmermann is a former cheerleader and cheer instructor. She met her fiancée, Jack Line, through a mutual friend and they’ve been dating for nearly three years. Although marriage had been discussed, Morgan had no idea Jack would pop the question on a trip to Napa. Jack planned it perfectly. He set up a private wine tasting with food pairing at Artesa winery where he asked for her hand. As soon as she said yes, the photographer Jack hired appeared and began shooting engagement photos in the beautiful Napa setting.
Currently, Morgan works at a Houston-area wedding venue and understands issues brides encounter during this exciting time. She suggests focusing on the memories and important stuff: your dress, hair, makeup and the reason you are at the altar. It is about love and the feelings you have for your soul mate—the rest is just icing on the cake! “I am a firm believer in not stressing about the wedding planning process,” she says. “At times it can be overwhelming but you just have to remind yourself this is supposed to be a fun and special time—not stressful.” As she makes plans for her late Summer/early Fall 2016 wedding, she is certain she will enlist the services of a videographer. “I think it is so awesome to be able to watch live footage from the big day,” she says. She looks forward to re-living the memories and catching moments she might have missed in real time.
Lorie Speich from A Splendid Event coordinated the billboard bride shoot at picturesque Pecan Springs. Her specialty is taking a bride’s love story and portraying it to the guests through the wedding. When Lorie saw the beaded gown from Ventura’s Bridal Fashions it immediately became the inspiration for the shoot. The gown evokes a Tuscan, old-world feeling. “Morgan looks like a princess,” she says.
The photography team from Dream Photography and Video was on hand to capture every moment of the shoot. AJ’s Urban Petals created a custom table scape with beautiful flowers to coordinate with the look of the day. Morgan’s hair and makeup were transformed by the team at Simple Beauty Artistry. Lines were provided by LBL and Supreme Kakes provided the naked cake.
