I had the amazing privilege of taking the wedding pics for one of my very best friends in the world, Heather. I’ve known Heather for about 21 years (crap, I feel old) and practically lived at her house through high school. There are so many wonderful memories that come to mind, but I won’t babble on about that. This post is about her AMAZING union to Alejandro. These two are perfect for each other! Their personalities truly compliment each other well. A perfect match!
Their wedding was A.MAZ.ING!! Best wedding I’ve been to…period! I’m so very happy for them. I wish we could go back and re-live it. H has always had impeccable taste and it showed in every detail of the wedding. From the fresh market flowers, to the locally bought salsa dishes that the food was served in, to the custom face hole board for guests to pose behind. She also did handmade pillow covers, a handmade quilt for the the teepee(yes, I said teepee), and gave handmade kitchen towels as wedding favors.
The details were thought out and precise, the ceremony was warm and loving. It was also in Spanish and I didn’t understand a darn thing, but it was lovely! But what topped the evening off is what came as a surprise to H and A. Heather had wanted the local churro guy to come and to have a Mariachi band play. Neither one of those things were going to be there…so she thought. At about 5 minutes to 11pm, Heidi (Heather’s sister) came over to me and told me that the mariachi band would be showing up at 11. Next thing I knew, Heather came over and asked, “Wouldn’t that be awesome if a mariachi band just showed up?” Yes, yes it would be awesome! That moment when the band walked into the backyard was priceless!
It was an amazing celebration of love and I’m so thrilled beyond words to not only be there for one of my bestie’s weddings, but to also be the one to capture it for her memories for years to come. Love you, Heather and Alejandro. I’m so happy for you two!!!
