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!

Yukie & Daisuke were married at one of my all time favorite places…EVER!  Willow Heights Mansion is the epitome of glamor and class with killer views to boot!  Yukie & Daisuke have one of those stories that make you believe in destiny.  They are both from Japan and first met working for the same company doing an internship.  They developed a friendship that was cut short when Yukie moved to the Bay Area for a new job. But as fate would have it, Daisuke would get a job with the same company and relocating the the Bay Area as well!  It was inevitable that their magnetic friendship would turn into something more…a lasting bond…a beautiful marriage.  You could just feel the love at this wedding.  There were so many tears during the speeches, and although most of them were not in English, I found myself tearing up witnessing the emotional response the beautiful words were eliciting.  It was a glamorous celebration filled with feminine sparkly detail including her AH-MAZING shoes!  I am so happy for Daisuke & Yukie!  Check out their stunning wedding story below!

LOVE this idea!  A fun way to show your connection to the bride and groom!

For those wondering, this is a real child, not a doll!  I know this cuz he was dancing all night long 🙂

There is something so romantic about having your face pulled in by your new husband for the first kiss!  Am I right?!

Heather & Rikio ~ Married!! ~ Willow Heights Mansion Wedding, Morgan Hill, Ca

It was a proposal like non other.  He had it all planned out.  A Tiffany’s box, the wine country, & a happily ever after.  The only catch is that this was not just any guy proposing, this was a guy known for pulling pranks.  That Tiffany blue box every girl dreams of opening was empty. […]

It was a proposal like non other.  He had it all planned out.  A Tiffany’s box, the wine country, & a happily ever after.  The only catch is that this was not just any guy proposing, this was a guy known for pulling pranks.  That Tiffany blue box every girl dreams of opening was empty.  All part of the plan.  She, utterly disappointed.  He, down on one knee with the real ring in the real box…looking up at her asking her to be his wife.  Tears of sadness turned into tears of joy within seconds…

Heather wanted to incorporate a little of Rikio’s heritage into the wedding so she herself folded 1,000 paper cranes…a Japanese symbol for good luck.  The cranes were filled to the top of every vase and scattered about the reception.  It was just gorgeous!  I know this couple won’t need any luck as they are simply perfect for each other.  The day was magical and the love that surrounded them was beautiful.

LOVE this ‘First Touch’ instead of ‘First Look’!!  It was so playful and such a clever way to build the anticipation of the big reveal when they would see each other for the first time at the ceremony!

 

Sometimes it’s good to have a little ring dropping to keep things interesting…

Couple’s like Cary and April are the kind I dream about photographing!  They have so much fun together in front of my camera to the point where I have to wonder what Cary is saying to make April laugh so hard.  I love it!  April was an absolute vision on her wedding day.  I literally could not stop taking photos of her!  She rocked her lace trumpet style wedding gown  like no one’s business!  Simply breathtaking.  The Willow Heights Mansion is absolutely gorgeous with it’s sweeping views of the valley below, modern interior design and gorgeous chandeliers everywhere.  The colors and concept of lace, khaki and peach went together so well.  I absolutely was obsessed with the floral designs by Loop Event Arts.

I am so excited to share this fun, beautifully designed  wedding of April and Cary.!  Congrats you two!

LOVE this look of awe as Cary first sees his bride come around the corner arm in arm with her dad!

 DYING to know what Cary said to his new wife of 60 seconds to make her laugh!

Every once in a while I get to shoot a wedding that is beyond my wildest dreams…This wedding definitely fell into that category.  It wasn’t just the beautiful Willow Heights Mansion, the amazing Coordinating by Morgan Events, the gorgeous table centerpieces by Soulflower or the Omega Band that sealed the deal,  it was the amazing couple and people who were a part of it!  I really wanted to trade in my camera for some orange heels and a floor length blue satin gown because this couple and wedding party were beyond FUN!  It is a huge testament to the type of people Karen and Pete are being that so many wonderful friends and family were there to witness this beautiful union.  This wedding was filled with so much love and heartfelt speeches as well as the wildest dancing, shot-taking, and floor stomping that I have ever witnessed!  Seriously awesome!  Meghan Faith, my amazing Second Shooter helped me make this story complete!

These are just a few of my favorites!  Cheers to Karen and Pete and all those who made this breathtaking day possible!

Oh, those are just cuff links made from the baseball pitched by Matt Cain in the game he beamed someone…awesome.

Did I mention I am Obsessed with this dress from David’s Bridal!  I can hardly believe it either!

Love this First Look!!

Bridal party secretly watching the “First Look” unveil!
