Heather+Jack | Montgomery, AL Wedding
"This is Bella. She is the sweet pup of the Beck family, whom I am really close to. They were kind enough to let me live with them for the month before the wedding, as well as fill their house with girls getting ready for the Big Day. They made sure we got ready in the utmost comfort."
"Jack wrote me this beautiful letter for the Big Day, and surrounded it with my favorite flower, gardenias. On top of that, he got me this BEAUTIFUL pearl bracelet to wear."
"I'm a sucker for black and white photos, so this has to be my favorite of Jack. :)"
"I promise this was not posed, but it is my favorite picture of me from the entire day." (Ed.note: we can confirm- not posed!)
"I started this journal August 1, 2010, my freshman year of college, as a reminder to not waste my time with meaningless relationships. The journal was to My Future Husband. And though I am not one for cheesy, I gave this to him as we were all getting ready in our separate rooms. He knew about the journal and what it meant to me, so I think this meant a lot to him as well."
"He always has a way with words. (What was that about not being cheesy?..)"
"It meant so much to me to be surrounded in prayer by my best friends."
"This perfume belonged to my Mama B, who has always been such a strong example and role model to me. I wanted to have it with me on the Big Day to remind me of her, since she wasn't mobile enough to come."
"I was raised by my grandparents, but both my parents have always been present in my life. So it seemed fitting that both my grandfather (left) and my dad (right) walked me down the aisle. "
"Our wedding party was made of such an eclectic group: high school friends, college friends, family, friends from church, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc. And we couldn't have asked for better people to stand at the altar beside us!"
"He just kept kissing me, and I was very happy to let him!"
"Tiffany Cotton, a friend of ours, did such an AMAZING job on the wedding party flowers! With the help of Pinterest, I showed her what I wanted, and she went above and beyond my expectations!"
"The back of the cake topper is perhaps my favorite subtle highlight of the reception. It has the bride pinching the groom's bum. I find it very fitting. ;)"
"Jack has his family have always been big into Disney, so he and Mom danced to "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" (Movie version, not the Elton John one) for their Mother-Son dance."
"We're pretty big jokers, so he knew it was coming."
"Jack and I went into our wedding day with the mindset that not everything would be perfect, but at the end of the day, we would be married and surrounded by the ones we love, and that is all that mattered. And we were right! There were little bumps, but they paled in significance to the events of the day! We couldn't have asked for a better day, better friends and family, better surroundings, or better photographers. Luke and Jackie were amazing. I hardly noticed they were there, but they captured the day so well! Thank you."
