From Heather Elizabeth Photography
…I am sending you the wedding of Doug and Felice that I photographed on May 31st of this year. The wedding took place at Doug’s parent’s place in Healdsburg, California. The couple still lives out in that area and are huge beer & wine fans. So of course the wedding had the best of the local brews and wines. Felice is so detail oriented that she really had a small detail for everything – down to the sign pointing to the restroom! It was really a feast for the eyes for me to photograph. They even had a private vineyard to shoot in!
From The Bride…All the succulents were ordered on Etsy from a vendor in San Diego and (DIY). We bought all the vases and put the burlap on them and put the lavender in the tall vases. The escort cards were paper from the paper source and I embossed them, cut corks and my mom did the calligraphy. Everything that was not rented was a DIY. Even the arbor was made by Doug’s brother. The bars were rented. We did so much of the wedding ourselves.

For as un-southern as I am, I am fully obsessed with the elegance and traditions of the region right down to the way my Southern friends add y’all to just about anything. And this Louisiana affair is the poster child for Southern elegance. Photographed in that gorgeous Erich McVey way with styling and vintage vignettes by Mrs. Vintage and grand, sweeping florals by Karin’s Kreations LLC, this full gallery is a must.

From The Bride…My husband and I became engaged a little over a year prior to our wedding, and I couldn’t have been more excited about the upcoming journey! Like most ladies, I had a vision for our wedding day. I immediately booked our amazing photographer, venue, and stylist! I had dreamed of a very classy and elegant look with purples, blues, and pinks mixed with a hint of gold. From mood boards to Pinterest boards, we began our planning! I worked very closely with my photographer and stylist to create the perfect wedding! Our wedding was very intimate, and the day could not have been any more magical! I will dearly cheerish March 8th of 2014 for the rest of my life.
