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!

Nestldown was their dream wedding location, but when their ideal wedding date was not available, they booked another venue. Then entered Covid. Their wedding date was pushed back 2 years, but luckily the wonderful concept of Minimonys was born! They decided this was the perfect solution to become husband and wife at a sooner date and still have a few close family and friends present. Nesltdown was the perfect place, and their ideal minimony date WAS available! Everything was falling into place beautifully AND they get to have two weddings with the big one happening next year! Nestldown is like stepping into a fairytale. Hidden amongst redwood groves in the Santa Cruz mountains, it boasts a massive koi pond and a gorgeous ceremony site tucked inside of a sea of redwood trees and lush greenery. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful to admire. It has long been a dream of mine to shoot there!

The day started off with Connie getting into her gorgeous wedding dress! A corset inspired lace bodice with tiny crystals scattered throughout the skirt. They had their first look under a weeping willow tree by the coi pond which was a beautiful moment as I could tell Connie knocked his socks off! My favorite moments however, happened during the ceremony. Just watching her come down the winding steps that meandered through trees and lush gardens was breathtaking. There were so many happy tears throughout the ceremony which made it feel even more intimate. I am so thankful I got to be a part of their wedding and am excited to see them again for the BIGmony!

Danielle & Matt will always have a special place in my heart! It was my “Coming Back” wedding after a year and a half of not photographing a single wedding due to Covid. They had to postpone their date TWICE! The stress of the unknown they experienced with grace is admirable for sure. But in the end, their day…THE day, couldn’t have gone any better! I could tell from the constant smiles and laughter from Danielle and Matt that they were on cloud 9 being able to finally celebrate their marriage with all their friends and family.

There are some special details I have to mention, like the dress…It took my breath away when I saw it hanging in the bridal suite. Layer upon layer of tulle, each with a different wow factor. Some layers had lace appliques, while others were covered in a subtle gold glitter pattern. I also just love how the lace around the neck looked like a gorgeous piece of jewelry framing her neckline. It was a 9 month collaboration with her designer to make her dress-dreams a reality. Another detail that was a vision come to life, was the orchid and floral chandelier that they said their vows beneath. A total masterpiece by Wine Country Flowers and a dream come true for Danielle. See images below. I am so thankful for getting to be a part of this special day! I hope you enjoy the photos!
