Erik and Heather. She’s a makeup buyer for Nordstrom, and he’s a firefighter. They met in an elevator (Well, kinda- they live in the same apartment building). They were married by Erik & Heather’s 2 uncles last week, and there was not a dry eye in the house. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding celebration that was such a family affair! It seems like every aspect, every piece of decor, and every morsel was made or designed by a one of Heather and Erik’s friends. It was truly a day where everyone came together to celebrate as one large lovely group. Here are a few of our favorite wedding photographs that we snagged while doing the first pass-through of editing!
Did we mention Erik is a firefighter? Who has fire extinguisher cufflinks? So cool!
As each of the groomsmen walked up the aisle, they would shake Erik’s hand. I new something was going down, but couldn’t quite see it until I spyed it in my Nikon’s LCD screen. They were handing him ROCKS!! And they wrote the sweetest little love notes on them. Every man should be so lucky to have such thoughtful groomsmen!
Why yes, that IS a green parachute hanging from the ceiling!!!!
