heidi + brent

Filed in weddings shot by on at

Heidi and Brent are a pretty amazing couple.  One of the first things we noticed about them was how kind they both are – not only to each other, but to everyone around them.  They have been together for more than nine years, and they are still totally in love, and the best of friends.  They couldn’t be more perfect for each other.  Their wedding was one of those weddings that made us forget we were working.  We were welcomed in, made to feel like honored guests, and treated like we were old friends that they’ve known forever.  It really was an incredible day, overflowing with love and laughter, and we feel honored to have been a part of it.

We were super excited to be back at the Glen Iris Inn!  We were there in July for Sandy and Brian’s wedding, and decided back then that it was one of the best venues EVER for a wedding – just incredible.  One of my favorite parts about weddings at the Glen Iris is that the bride gets ready in the library.  Not just any library, but a library with stars on the ceiling!!  I LOVE those stars.  I also love that Heidi chose such a cheery shade of yellow as a wedding color.  It’s so happy and fun!  Just like her.  :)

The ceremony was so beautiful…in every way possible.
After the ceremony, we got to stroll around and grab some portraits of our gorgeous bride and groom.  There is, of course, no shortage of amazing photo locations at Letchworth.
Heidi and Brent rented a bubble machine for their reception and it was so awesome!  Having bubbles shooting up all around you while you make your grand entrance is such a cool idea!  Also, if you’re planning on having a kid-friendly reception, a bubble machine will provide them with hours of entertainment…I promise.  :)
Heidi did an incredible job with all of the reception details.  The daisy place cards were pure genius.  :)
Instead of a traditional wedding “favor,” Heidi and Brent made a donation to the ASPCA, and had those adorable postcards printed up to put at each place setting, which is really just a further testament to what amazing people they are.  Those are their cats, Peachie and Ed, who you may remember from their e-shoot.  (Photographing kitties in costume was a MAJOR highlight of my summer!)  :)
I love this shot…times a billion.

And, what a party it was.  ;)

Heidi and Brent – thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being such wonderful people. Not only are we honored that you chose us to document your wedding day, but we are grateful just to know you. You are two of the kindest, most genuine people we have ever met. We wish you both all the happiness in the world – you deserve it. Much love, J + B :)

    You’ve made me cry! Good tears, of course. You have an incredible gift for capturing the emotion of a moment. Every time I look at these, I relive the best day of my life. I can’t thank you enough for that. And your words are so touching. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t wait to see the rest. (P.S. the pic of Brent & I hugging that you love “times a billion” is right after they brought out his grooms cake. I am so glad you were there for that moment :) ) – Heidi
