Heather and Justin | Wedding at Vista Creek in NC

Tying the Knot

Heather and Justin are finally MARRIED! Their wedding was originally scheduled for earlier in 2020, but COVID-19 pushed it back. However, with a little bit shuffling and a team of family and friends behind them, they were able to still celebrate their special day this summer. I’m so happy to say that they finally tied the knot at Vista Creek in NC.

The sun was out and shining at full strength that day, making it feel like 104 degrees outside. Regardless of the heat, the day turned out absolutely beautiful. Details were captured inside their reception area while the ladies were getting ready in the bridal suite upstairs.

Vista Creek‘s bridal suite was on the third floor so Justin and Heather were able to be easily hidden away from each other until it was time for the first look.

Their ceremony was held in front of a small number of guests. To be able to celebrate with their loved ones who weren’t able to attend, they also streamed their ceremony on a Zoom call. Heather walking over the bridge to the ceremony location was such a beautiful sight.

Sweet Surprises

Heather had a surprise planned for Justin! He is a huge Steeler’s fan so she arranged for yellow “terrible towels” to be swung around by all of the guests once they had their first kiss! It was a such a fun sight and a sweet surprise! Small touches like this can make your wedding day even more memorable.

After the bride and groom and bridal party photos were finished, we all ran inside to the AC and went right into the bridal party entrances and the first dance. Look how beautiful these moments were!

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was the shoe game and seeing everyone voting on Heather and Justin. It was so great getting to know these two more and I was honored to be part of such a special moment in their lives.

A Sparkling Send-Off

The wedding ended with a sparkler exit with beautiful weather, not a drop of rain until the drive home. What a perfect day!

Thank you again Heather and Justin for booking me!
