She swore she'd never date him, and he wanted nothing to do with her. Only a few weeks later, they started dating. A year later, they were saying I Do. Heidi - the epitome of grace, spirit, and charm - never had a nervous thought. Through the flurry of the morning, her thoughts were fixed on one thing: marrying the man of her dreams.
Evin - cheerful, resilient, and so incredibly gracious - handled the day with ease, making everyone comfortable with his smile and easy-going charm. Amidst the busy details of the day, he never lost sight of one thing: making Heidi his bride.
Laid back weddings are my absolute FAVORITE, and this wedding was no exception!
Heidi, being a ballet dancer, chose a beautifully elegant dress - loved it!
And of course... ballet shoes. :)
She was so laid back the entire morning - not many brides can make their own bouquet the morning of their wedding!
Their rings were so incredibly unique - I love the solitary diamond. :)
Heidi made such a beautiful bride. :)
And so the sweet moments began...
And didn't really stop all day!
Evin began his day like a groom should - with steak and tight-roping. :)
Their first look was adorable. Heidi requested that Evin be able to see her coming - just like when she would walk down the aisle. Seeing them run to each other's arms made my heart swell. :)
These two were so wrapped up in each other that I had SUCH an easy job of capturing their love...
This girl is FIERCE!
Evin was a little bit excited to get married that day... :)
Their bridal party consisted of some of their closest friends...
And they all had SO much fun together!
After photos, everyone was able to relax before the ceremony - even the bridesmaids. :)
Evin cried the instant Heidi appeared - it was SO sweet.
Husband and wife!!
Their reception details were filled with little bits of nature - rocks, sand, and roses.
So simple and sweet. :)
Since Evin has Celiacs Disease (allergic to gluten), all of their desserts were gluten free. Since I'm also gluten-free, I was in cookie heaven!! :)
I love these moments from the reception:
Evin and Heidi, thank you SO much for allowing me to photograph your beautiful wedding! It was such a huge priviledge to be able to spend the entire day with you. Thanks for trusting me with your images. I hope you have a beautiful new life together, and may God richly bless the future ahead of you! :) Love you guys!
