Wait until she gets the full wedding selects. Riverdale actress Vanessa Morgan married baseball player Michael Kopech on January 4, 2020, and she is now unveiling the photos slowly across social media.

Morgan took to Instagram three days later to share beautiful pics from her nuptials. “Married my Prince,” the actress wrote, alongside two portraits—one of herself looking up at her husband with a heartfelt expression and the second, a photo of Kopech getting ready before walking down the aisle.

Morgan’s gown, a long-sleeve, beaded and sheer lace gown featuring a high column neckline, was designed by Eisen Stein Bridal. According to the brand, Morgan’s gown was the “Finch” style and she accessorized her look with drop earrings and a veil. “Wishing them both a magical life together, just like this day was [magic],” the brand commented on social media.

The couple married at the Historic Walton House near Miami, Florida. “My wedding was a fairytale,” Morgan added Tuesday afternoon. “Getting emotional even thinking about it. Had a super intimate 35 person ceremony & wouldn’t have had it any other way.” The bride hired wedding planner Tami Varma, whom she thanked “for bringing my vision to life.”

Of course, it was with the help of all the wedding pros involved, prompting the bride to thank “all the vendors who helped make this the best day of my life.”

Kopech proposed in a rather romantic and scenic spot in July 2019. The athlete dropped down to one knee while the two were on vacation in front of a roaring waterfall. “My Forever,” Morgan wrote at the time.

Prior to the wedding, Kopech quit social media last fall. “I always felt like something was missing. I was always looking ahead but at the same time, my choices from past mistakes still haunted me. So followed anxieties, so followed depression. I needed answers. I needed help. So I searched. And I found,” he explained in his final social media post. “There is no moment like this one, or the next one, and there never will be again. The presence of creation in stillness is a beauty that will never die. In stillness lies our awareness of what’s to come. There is no peace like it.”
