I loved getting the chance to photograph Heather and Eric’s Emerson Venue wedding day! Heather had such a clear vision of what she wanted her wedding to be. It was so much fun hearing about her plans and then seeing it all come to life! There was amazing, colorful design elements everywhere. At the heart of it all was Heather and Eric’s love for each other and those closest to them. Heather was kind enough to write about their story, her wedding vision, and more:
This was so much fun and Jeff got some incredible pictures of us at The Adolphus Hotel. It was also so nice to get a special moment like that on camera. It helps calm the nerves of the day and let us enjoy everything a little bit more!
My dad has had many many health scares throughout my life so having him here to walk me down the aisle was a very big deal to me. Our first look was so much more memorable then I even imagined. I feel all the same feelings flooding back every time I see the photos.
My dress was another very very very hard decision. That’s probably the one thing girls dream of the most growing up and I knew exactly what I wanted. I had been to many different shops but wasn’t getting that “this is the one” feeling. This is until I walked into The Blushing Bride. My problem went from not loving anything to loving too many!
I ultimately went with a plunging neckline, full pearl beading embroidery, and a custom two piece cape. I felt like it was the perfect blend of modern and classic. Anyone who knows me knows I rock bold red lipstick everywhere I go. My wedding day would be no different! Red nails, deep plum lips, and red velvet Jimmy Choos to top of the full look!
I was so unbelievably nervous but it was exactly what I always imagined it being. Lots of laughs and inside jokes between Eric and I. I’m blown away by the pictures, the pops of color, and all the happiness that comes pouring through.
We wanted Emporium Pies at our wedding after the first time we stumbled into their Deep Ellum store 3 years ago. Plus, everyone loves pie!!
Our wedding reception was the most fun I’ve ever been to! It was filled with great music, and even better drinks.
