After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

It is always a dream come true photographing weddings at Olympia’s Valley Estate!  The property is filled with little treasures including the antique chic decor in the home, an old wooden boat house across from a large pond, and of course the huge barn with crystal bling hanging from its beams.  This wedding was filled with wonderful touches.  I loved the bride’s flower crown and gorgeous bouquet! She and her groom had an entourage of flower girls and ring bearers that were too cute for words!  The boys looked so dapper in their vests and converse sneakers and the girls looked like garden fairies in their beautiful sage dresses and flower crowns!  After a ceremony that included a sing along to “You Can Count On Me” by Bruno Mars and bubbles for the newlyweds to walk through there was an amazing outdoor feast for the guests.  After sunset everyone moved into the barn to get down to a live band!  Such a great night and so happy for the new Mr. & Mrs!

I seriously cannot get enough of this wedding or this amazing couple!  Kristen & Nick make me and my camera smile!  I just love the chemistry they exude and the way they look at each other.  You can just tell their lives are filled with so much joy.  They have an all star group of friends too, who definitely shook things up in front of the camera which is my type of crew!  The grey bridesmaids dresses paired with the sunflower bouquets were perfect for this outdoor wedding surrounded by rustic barrels, carriage wheels, and chandeliers sprinkled throughout.  Kristen’s inspiration for their rustic country wedding were her ‘To Die For” Frye wedding boots!  She has loved boots since she was a child, so when she saw these boots a few years back, she knew they would be the boots she would wear on her wedding day.  Each of the bridesmaids & groomsmen also sported their favorite boots.  I just loved how the guys got to change into jeans and vests after the formal wedding ceremony so that they could party in comfort! All the special home spun details added to the warm feeling of the day including the quilt that Kristen’s mom sewed and the home made jam that Nick’s mom made for each of the guests.  I cannot wait until I get to photograph another milestone for these two awesome people!  For now, enjoy their wedding!

Check out this gorgeous wedding on Fab You Bliss!

When you take an extremely awesome, fun loving couple like Beth & Jared and combine it with one of my all time favorite wedding venues, Olympia’s Valley Estate, you get a wedding that only dreams are made of!  From the moment I met these two I knew we were going to have a blast together!  I mean when a first meeting starts with Corona’s and tacos, forget about it.  It’s like you’ve won over my stomach and my heart all at once and the only thing that tops that is actually being fed tacos while I shoot your wedding.  When you first approach this estate you get goosebumps.  The lavender path leading to the charming home welcomes you with a fresh scent.  The sound of girls getting ready and the beats of the best play list ever fills the home with an infectious energy!  Beth looked absolutely stunning in her drop back lace dress and her shoes were to die for! Beth and Jared wanted to wait to see each other at the ceremony, but did a “first touch” which was so fun!  I could just sense the giddiness they both felt as soon as their hands met.  After the lake front ceremony, the reception took place in the beautiful barn with antique chandeliers, mirrors, and so much rustic charm!  Whenever there is a gathering at the barn, you know it is gonna be an experience that you will never forget!  Something about the setting makes for the best dance parties EVER!  Let’s just say, I didn’t want to leave! Before I give it all away, check out the story of their day below and don’t miss the delicious sunset that created an amber waves of gold in Beth’s hair.  Beth & Jared, I wish you the best and hope our paths cross again soon!

Most creative gift to date!  “I wanted to make the first ‘toast’ of the day!”

And these wine bottles each labeled with different ‘firsts’ as a married couple!  You open each bottle after your first baby, first fight, first big purchase, first dinner party, first anniversary, and first big trip!  The sentiment here speaks to me on so many levels!
