Vanessa Morgan has shared photos from her intimate New Year wedding, and it will give brides-to-be serious wedding inspiration. The Riverdale actress married her fiancé Michael Kopech on Saturday 4 January in front of just 35 of their close friends and family wearing the stunning Finch embellished wedding dress from Eisen Stein Bridal, and told fans their wedding day was "a fairytale".
The 27-year-old reflected on her wedding day on Tuesday, sharing photos of everything from their pampas-lined aisle to their incredible bespoke cocktails that featured a picture of two parrots on the top. Vanessa incorporated several of the year's biggest wedding trends into her décor, including pampas grass centrepieces and elaborate floral displays on the tables, with engraved copper signs to showcase their 'his and hers' cocktail menu, and even shelves of fresh coconuts engraved with the couple's names.

Their wedding stationery tied in with the tropical theme too; a black-and-white parrot illustration feature on their menus, while a neon sign hung over a teepee in a cosy seating area. Guests were also treated to personalised iced biscuits in an array of designs including a flower, wedding dress, tuxedo, and a heart decorated with the words "Mr and Mrs Kopech".
"My wedding was a fairytale. Getting emotional even thinking about it. Had a super intimate 35 person ceremony & wouldn't have had it any other day," Vanessa captioned photos of her beautiful wedding, as well as tagging all of the vendors who she said "helped make this the best day of my life".
