I love Matthew and Heather's engagement story. Matt got down on one knee and asked the important question after he and his soon-to-be fiance crossed the finish line after a 26.2 mile marathon in Disney. How he managed to keep the ring in his pocket the entire time is beyond me, but he did and she said yes!

They both planned a beautifully elegant ceremony and reception at Laurita Winery, surrounded by views of sprawling land and a breathtaking sunset as they both made their vows to one another.

I was in awe of the uniqueness of the bridesmaid's dresses, among so many other things. Each lady of the bride wore a dress in the same color scheme, yet showcased their personal aesthetic by individual dress styles! It was creative and tied into the romanticism perfectly; the husband-to-be and his fellow groomsmen all donned light, yet dapper suits. Everyone paired exquisitely.

Another sweet detail were the flowers! Heather is allergic to authentic ones, she ordered from EcoFlowers and her crafty-creative bridesmaid arranged them all and they were too beautiful for words. They also gave out succulents as their wedding favors; succulents or any kind of cacti for the matter are perfect for anyone who suffers from pollen allergies. Just know that there are so many other options for floral arrangements and gifts other than silk ones.

As I walked throughout their ceremony and reception, capturing every memory of their day they could ever think of, I had the exciting moment of working along with one of my favorite vendors: Bahr Cinematography! I always feel wonderful when clients take my advice and choose to hire one of my preferred vendors, because we all work so well together and I feel the photos definitely reflect that.

Here's to forever, Heather & Matthew-
