We so enjoyed photographing the FUN yet very elegant wedding at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The bride, Heather, was so full of energy and excitement when we arrived, and it continued all day! She was just so excited to finally marry the love of her life. We reached out to them to have them tell us their love story in their own words….so enjoy!
We met in high school our senior year. Antonio and I had mutual friends and were around each other often. I even tried setting him up with another class mate. Little did we know, we were made for each other. In December 2007 Antonio asked me to the winter formal dance. I said YES! After meeting in September our friends knew that we were meant to be (especially Marc LaBarge). On April 8th, 2008 Marc told Antonio to just make that girl Heather his. He did, and once again I said yes. The two of us have been inseparable ever since.
Antonio gifted his bride gorgeous diamond stud earrings, and left her a little note on the bottom of her wedding shoes…..how sweet is that?
Antonio proposed may 13th 2015. He hide the ring on our dogs collar and got down on one knee in front of our very best friends. He and my best friend actually used my Pinterest account to design my engagement ring according to pins I had posted. After three hours at one please they made the perfect ring.
Antonio: I love Heather spontaneous and peppy personally. She’s always up for a new adventure, my life will never be boring with her by my side.Heather: Antonio has the sweetest heart. He would do anything for anyone. He’s such a hard worker and brings out the extra fun side of me, pushing me to always try something new!
Committed to always putting each other first, loving each other even when we’re unlovable and challenging one and other to always be a better person than we were the day before.
For fun we travel, challenge each other at the gym, cook and spending time with our friends and family!
One of the most memorable things as a wedding photographer that I go to do was go on top of the JW Marriott with the bride and groom to the helicopter pad and do sunset photographs with them up there. What an amazing experience and view!!
