Heather & Michael

"And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday"

"And I know
That I am...
The luckiest"


I keep typing and then backspacing this first line. I don't even know how to sum up this whole weekend.

It was just lovely and joyful and so, so romantic. Heather and her friends are beautiful women - and they all love Heather so much. Seeing these girls rally around her made me so excited for me friends when they get married! I hope that I can be like Heather's friends are!

The day went off perfectly (actually, that would be a lie - there was a big bustling disaster but it did get worked out haha - other than that the whole day went perfectly!). For months the weekends have been beautiful in Atlanta, however, everyone was worried as the weather forecast called for 3 straight days of rain. It rained the night of the rehearsal, it rained wedding morning - but in the afternoon it all came to a halt and Heather had the outdoor wedding she had dreamed of. And it was spectacular!

But, lets start at the very beginning...

Heather and Mike ended the night by dancing under the stars all alone. Their friends watched from a distance, Ben Folds sang "I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you..." and it was the PERfect end to the fun, romantic day :)
