After spending just one day with Heather and Steven, it’s clear to me that family is the most important thing to them. Heather and her daughter joined Steven and his son to became one loving blended family. Family and friends flew from all over the country to celebrate with them at their gorgeous wedding.

The bride chose a rustic, natural decor theme, including baby’s breath, wooden crates, and rusty metal hearts. It was adorable, cozy, and inviting. Vintage Gardens was in full bloom, as usual, and the light was beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for more!
