Heather and Nick became Mr. and Mrs. Ortner on January 13th, 2012 and it was glorious. I know Heather from church and was excited for pretty much the past 8 months about the wedding, especially knowing Heather's super classy style and fun personality. Sure enough, the wedding did not disappoint. More than anything though, I love that Heather and Nick's wedding wasn't just about a day, it was celebrating the fact that God brought these two together for the rest of their lives. When I arrived at Arbor Pointe, the reception hall where everyone was getting ready, I was blown away. Not only is the venue itself gorgeous, but all of Heather's hard work paid off and it looked stunning, with a romantic, Victorian-inspired theme. But I'll show you that stuff later! I like to be chronological so we'll start with the girls getting ready. To date, this wedding produced a few of my most favoritest detail shots ever:
P.S. Heather made her bouquet and her mom made the garters. Do you think I can convince them to go into business with me? They'll make stuff and I'll just take photos of it. I think this is a good plan.
Look at these gorgeous girls. They are wonderful and make awesome models!
I can't get over how beautiful Heather was/is all the time. My sweet second shooter caught this next photo, which I adore.
We then headed over to the Texas Baptist Children's Home chapel, where the ceremony was to be held.
I know I've said this countless times before, but I love my job.
Now you get to see reception photos! So many beautiful details!
They even had a hot cocoa station! And combining two of my favorite things, Heather found unique gourmet popcorn and displayed it in an old suitcase for favors! The beautiful cake was created by Classy Cakes by Lori and the grooms cake (Heather and Nick both went to Tech) was made by my wonderful friend Sonnet, of Sweet Intentions.
Can you tell this was a fun wedding?! And it just kept getting better! Gobo Entertainment did an amazing job with lights and music to make the reception quite a party. But by now your eyes are probably glazing over from all the photos, so I'll try to wrap it up.
