Johanna and Morgan’s Wedding at the National Mississippi River Museum in Dubuque, Iowa

An Aquatic October Wedding at the National Mississippi River Museum in Dubuque, Iowa


Love stories come in all shapes and sizes, and Johanna and Morgan’s love story is truly unique. It all began on a cozy October night in 2018, as they shared a delicious pizza from Casey’s and savored a bottle of red wine. Little did they know that this night would become a cherished tradition known as their ‘Pizzaversary.’

Johanna and Morgan’s love story is a testament to the fact that true love can begin with something as simple as pizza and red wine. They love visiting zoos and aquariums, so it was only natural to host their celebration in the location they chose. Their journey, filled with shared adventures, culinary escapades, and a shared love of reading, is an inspiring example of love that continues to grow and flourish. We celebrate this remarkable couple and look forward to the many more adventures they will share together in the years to come.

Mutual Friends and Shared Connections

Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, with countless details to consider and decisions to make. That’s why many couples opt for the expertise and guidance of a professional wedding planner to help bring their dreams to life. For Johanna and Morgan, the decision to choose Emily and her team at Soiree Wedding Planning was an easy one. Their choice of the Assistant Package was driven by a shared vision of a stress-free, seamlessly executed, and enjoyable wedding day for all their guests.

Congrats, Jo & Morgan! We were so happy to be a part of your gorgeous day!
