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!

Sarah and John know how to throw a party…and a wedding 🙂 I should have known from the second Sarah told me she was from New Orleans, that it was going to be a wedding to remember! We had just returned form New Orleans two weeks before their wedding to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! It was our first time there and we were instantly in love with the city! There was so much culture and the live music and food was the best we’d experienced in all our U.S. travels! I was sooo excited to see that they were incorporating some of this culture into their wedding day! As they walked down the aisle as newlyweds, all the guests waved white scarves, while a brass band played a celebratory song. All the guests danced their way from their seats all the way to cocktail hour! It was an amazing moment that totally set the tone for the rest of the night. A HUGE dance party! The reception was cocktail style so the guests could dance all night and take breaks for food and drinks whenever they wanted. I LOVED every second of it! Another highlight was Sarah’s son, who was incredibly adorable! I couldn’t take enough photos of him 🙂 Congrats Sarah & John!

Classica & Greg said their vows at the beautiful Vintner’s Inn in Santa Rosa, Ca with a beautiful vineyard backdrop. It was such a joy to capture their wedding day because they are always laughing and smiling in each other’s presence, which was totally infectious ’cause I caught myself grinning ear to ear as I photographed them. It was fun to witness the way their love for each other poured out through their smiles. One of my favorite moments from their wedding was photographing them in the vineyards during sunset. They were freshly married and completely on cloud 9 as they held each other. I am so excited to share this blog from their wonderful wedding! Congrats to Classica & Greg (and your adorable dog Chopper!)

Congrats to Ashley & Eric! Their day was filled with so much beauty and love. They were married at Vintner’s Inn, one of my faves and one that never EVER disappoints! The place is oozing with charm and whimsy and I must add incredible sunsets! Ashley and Eric’s golden hour happened during dinner and getting all the way to the vineyard in heels at this point was not gonna happen for Ashley…which I totally get! I am only good for 45 minutes in heels! So I literally took them to where the sun was setting just a hundred yards away tucked behind the parking lot…I had no idea what I would find, but I stumbled upon the Holy Grail of hidden gems…Maybe it was the lighting or maybe it was the natural high I was on from photographing this amazing couple, but I’m pretty sure the garden was magical. Golden Hour is officially Magical Hour at Vintner’s Inn in my book.

One of my favorite parts of their day was the ceremony. It was filled with happy tears from siblings, parents, relatives and friends…and of course Eric when he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time walking down the aisle. I love tears on wedding days because that is the way I express over flowing happiness as well…(Cheerio commercials and proposal stories get me every time ). There is nothing better than capturing unfiltered emotion and I am so excited to share the story of their day through images!

Shirley & David’s Radiant Orchid Wedding is being featured right now on Every Last Detail Wedding Blog!  Head HERE to check out the article!

Oh My Goodness!  Words can’t describe how much I love David and Shirley.  From the moment we had our first meeting in San Francisco I knew shooting their wedding and having just a sliver of a role in their life would be a huge gift.  When I heard their story, I welled up.  It touched my heart.  It was too late from the word Hello…I had fallen too deep, invested myself too far into their story.  I HAD to shoot their wedding.

We had a ton of fun at their engagement session, which I might add was overflowing with beautiful details planned by Shirley…for inspiration check it out HERE.  I thought, if their engagement session was this beautiful, then I am gonna be like a kid in a candy store come their wedding.  It definitely exceeded all my expectations!  They were married under an arbor draped with white silk chiffon and said their vows beneath 3 crystal chandeliers…IT. WAS. BREATHTAKING.  to say the least.  There was amazing surprises throughout the evening that brought tears to Shirley’s eyes as well as mine (of course)…I felt like I was living the moments with Shirley through my camera.  From the 1st look that took David’s breath away, to their nephew’s precious voice signing and playing the piano (children singing gets me EVERY time!), to the surprise song written and performed by David to Shirley, and lastly to the beautiful letter he wrote her tucked within their wedding slideshow.  Oh boy, it was a tear jerker!  To top of the night they had Garden Creamery food truck serving decadent desserts that were to DIE for!  I of course had the Pumpkin ice cream with crumbles of heaven on top.  Congrats to you both! xoxoHeather

For Vendor Information regarding the amazing vendors that pulled this wedding off, see end of the post.

A live performance that was so beautiful by their nephew and David surprised Shirley with the most amazing love song personalized to their own story…ahhh, just melted my heart!
