Seafoam & Peach Wedding

Maggie Sottero is and always will be one of my favorite wedding dress labels. I vividly remember pinning over the Reese, a Maggie Sottero slim-line gown with a deep-v front and sparkly halter straps; similar to the gown Heather has on here. There’s just something about Sottero gowns that embody the perfect blend of sexy and classy – a tough balance to achieve! Add in seafoam, chiffon bridesmaid gowns, a killer updo, blush peach roses, and William, the dashing groom, and you’ve got one breath-taking wedding!
But you know what’s better than all those lovely details? The fact that Heather and Billy met when they were just 14, and this church? Same one their parents and grandparents married in! And they didn’t do just any ole’ first look – they went with a father-daughter first look, which, by the way, is the sweetest idea ever!

Photographed by Dan and Melissa, this whimsy, light-filled day will make your day! Congratulations Heather and William! Thank you for sharing such beautiful images with us.
