Heather & Julian’s Gorgeous Vintage Styled DIY Wedding

I’ve had this wedding booked for over a year, but I’ve been anticipating it for much longer than that! Heather and Julian are two of the kindest, most loving, generous, fun people ever and I’m absolutely certain that they were made for each other. I could go on and on about them, but then my baby would wake up and I’d never get this blog post finished. Besides, I know you’re really here for the photos! I knew that when I was shooting the wedding of two artists to expect some pretty awesome decor, but never in a million years did I imagine all of THIS! When I arrived at The Parson’s Table in Aledo I walked in, set my bags down, and asked myself out loud, “IS THIS REAL LIFE?”! I can’t even wrap my brain around the amount of time, creativity, and preparation it took to put together and event as magical as this one. There were flowers, handmade garlands, hand cut streamers, antiques, beautiful sayings, and little pieces of Heather and Julian’s life together on every single surface inside and outside the venue. Each centerpiece was unique and told a little story about Heather or Julian. If I didn’t know any better, I would assume that they hired an amazing wedding designer, but they didn’t. Every single detail you see here was designed and handmade by Heather with the help of her sweet family and friends. It was a wedding wonderland!


Heather & Julian – you two. OH, YOU TWO! Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph this amazing time in your lives. It wasn’t even my wedding and it’s still a day I’ll never forget.

    Waiting and praying for that special guy for my niece paid off BIG time. This wedding was the most beautiful wedding I’ve been to, and that’s a lot. The special handcrafted deco and themes put it over the top. I watched day after day, from early to very late or no sleep as Heather’s mom (and I big sister) poured her heart into making this everything Heather wanted. There are simply too many creative and talented people in the families family that I was finally realized, I had to be adopted! Shanna, you captive so much more than people, places, and things….2 loving families coming together for a lifetime. Good job Hans!ReplyCancel
