MEET heather

Kali and Dustin were married 5 years ago in a simple courthouse ceremony, and they chose to celebrate their 5 year anniversary with a beautiful vow renewal ceremony at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  This sweet couple just radiates with love for one another.  It’s evident from the moment you meet them, that they were meant to be together.  These two are truly beautiful inside and out.   We loved planning a special celebration with them, including a clean and classic look for their ceremony and reception space featuring ivory, white, and hints of blush.  A trio of vases filled with candlelight made for a simple centerpiece that added glow and sparkle to each table.  Kali was a stunning bride.  She looked like movie star, the perfect compliment to Dustin’s classic look in his black tuxedo.  These two are just gorgeous!  A very sweet and emotional ceremony that the couple wrote themselves (including personal vows that our bride and groom surprised each other with) was followed by photos on the grounds, and it was so nice to enjoy a warm sunny day!  After some stunning photos of the couple and their families, we adjourned inside for afternoon tea, cake and lots of celebration.  Our couple ended their big day with send off through a cloud of bubbles!  It seemed to me that there were magical moments happening every where I turned on this wedding day…it was truly a joy to photograph…I’ll let the photos do the talking…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

-xoxo Heather
