Evin and Heidi | St. Cloud Wedding

CouplesAmanda MohinaniComment

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!

She was so laid back the entire morning - not many brides can make their own bouquet the morning of their wedding!

Their first look wasΒ adorable.Β 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. :)
