Saturday, June 20th, the weather managed to hold off for us, yet again, in honor of Heather and John's wedding day! A late afternoon ceremony was held at the Immanuel Baptist Church followed by an evening reception at The Eastland Park Hotel.
Heather and her bridesmaids were so much fun to hang out with before the ceremony. They were busy getting hair finished, make-up applied and dressed... all while periodically taking time to play with the two flower girls (who should be applauded for their incredible patience!!). :) Heather even made time to help the flower girls with their make-up.
A surprise gift from John...
As you can see, Heather was pretty excited about it! :)
Then it was time to head to the church.
There was a little nervous energy as John and his groomsmen prepared for the big event. They soon made quick work of getting dressed, though and they were off to do some formals before going to the church.
A little after 4pm, the ceremony was underway. This church is filled with the most beautiful stained glass and it was a wonderfully romantic setting as Heather and John exchanged their vows.
We accomplished a handful of family formals after the ceremony. (BIG thanks to the best man for all his help in keeping people organized and ready to go!) Then we spent a few minutes with the bridal party and just the bride and groom before heading in to the reception.
It was a spectacular wedding! The Bob Charest Band had everyone on the dance floor all night (as always) and the crowd was shouting for more as the reception ended! Everyone had a great time with Heather and John on this day. It was so clear just how much these two mean to all of their family and friends.
We wish you both continued happiness in the years to come!
