This was SO hard for me to choose what to post and what special moments to tell because there were so many! Heather and I became friends through the wedding industry and when she and Crafton got engaged I was so excited to be the one that got to do their engagement session in NY and Sylense and I capture their wedding story. While the girls were busy getting ready, the boys were still having fun by the pool as you'll see by Crafton's cannon ball, I'll give him an 8 on that one:-) Heather wanted just her mom to help her get into her gown, so she could surprise her a special gift. Crafton and Heather are both so thoughtful and I love what they did for their gifts because both of them were totally shocked! The maid of honor delivered Crafton's gift to him and poured him his last drink as a single man. He was definitely surprised with the watch she gave him. Crafton sent his best man down to give Heather his gift. Oh my gosh, it was the best moment. He teared up as he told her that Crafton was giving her a very special family heirloom. As she opened it, Rusty told her it was his aunt's setting and the diamond was on a necklace so Heather can wear it and someday pass it down to their daughter. The tears were flowing.
We did their first look in Vinoy Park and as soon as we got back into the Vinoy to do bridal party pics it started pouring!! Thankfully, it made for some pretty awesome off camera flash pics in the front facade.
The Marey room was totally draped in white for the ceremony. The girls wore navy with pink and white florals and the guys wore navy jackets, chevron ties and I love their shoes! The reception decor was navy linens with crystal and silver lamps, chevron pillows, chevron gobos, and white lounge furniture. Their guests enjoyed action stations, signature drinks, and got sugared up at the sweets table. Heather had custom coasters for guests to put on the drinks while they were dancing. Crafton's dance with his sister was so sweet and emotional. Toasts, dances, I could go on forever!! But I won't. It was amazing and nothing makes me happier than seeing these 2 happy! Congrats Heather and Crafton!!!! xoxoxo
