When I think about Heather & Luke's wedding day, what stands out the most is not just the love they had for each other -- but the love that SURROUNDED them. These two are loved, adored, supported by so many. Family played such a big part in the wedding day (and when the bride has five sisters, all of whom were in the wedding party, what else would you expect?). Friends and family just poured out their love on Heather & Luke with cards, notes, and smiles. But let me tell you about the bride and groom!
They met through mutual friends, and got engaged over a year before their nuptials. I LOVED shooting their fall engagement session that included Montevallo's campus, parks, and *cough* sneaking into an overgrown field nearby (maybe. MAYBE.) After the session there was still almost a year to go till wedding day and believe me, I suffered through those months impatiently! But it was so worth the wait. The groom and his groomsmen stunned in light gray suits. Heather's bridesmaids and sweet flower girls shined in cotton-candy pink and aqua. (p.s. thanks for using my two favorite colors, Heather!) But Heather was a devastating beauty in her lacy mermaid gown.
Anyone can see what a gorgeous couple they are, but what you may not know is just what a humble & kind spirit they both have. During the days before the wedding in my communications with Heather, SHE was always asking ME if there was anything she could do for me! Are you serious?? WHO has the presence of mind during the crazy pre-wedding days to ask if one of their random vendors needs anything?! I know I didn't! But this is just how Heather and Luke are--kind, outgoing, and putting others before themselves.
I could go on forever about how wonderful these two are, but why don't you just scroll through and see for yourself?
This moment when Heather's sister had to hold back tears upon seeing her. Be still my heart!
Heather's grandparents are both deaf. She's signing, "I love you".
Have you ever seen such a stunning bride?
This prayer time was so incredible and sweet. Just another way Heather & Luke were surrounded with their families' love. None of this was posed, I promise!
