Heather and Michael got married right in their own neighborhood in Mesa, Arizona! Their ceremony was at Heather’s home church and reception was at their club.
Michael and Heather first met in August of 2007. She had just moved to Las Vegas to go to school at UNLV two days prior to their meeting. Heather’s roommate decided to throw a party before the first day of school in order for her and another friend to meet some fellow Rebels. Michael showed up to that party! They struck up conversation and had immediate chemistry, but timing just wasn’t right to start dating at that time so they kept in touch as acquaintances and saw each other occasionally on campus or at a party. In the spring of 2010, Heather moved home to Colorado earlier than planned, and at that time, Michael and her hadn’t been in touch for several months. One day in November though, she received a casual ‘hey, how are ya’ text message from Michael and was very surprised! His timing couldn’t have been better, she would be returning to Vegas mid December to walk at graduation with all her classmates! Also, Heather’s birthday just so happened to be a few days before graduation so she would be in Vegas for several days. Heather says it was so great to see Michael again. He took her out to celebrate on her birthday and then again the next night. That night, after a movie, they sat a 24 hour Starbucks and talked until 3am before either of them realized what time it was! After that, they talked every single day. Heather finally went back to Vegas to see him in May 2011 and they officially began dating in July 2011, and through tragedy, law school, and long distance for 4 years, they have been together ever since!
You could tell that this was a long awaited day not just by Heather and Michael, but all of their family and friends! Everyone was just so excited to finally see these two married!
They had such a cool color palette of navy and a rose gold color. The bridesmaids’ dresses were absolutely gorgeous!
The amazing ladies over at Bloom and Blueprint really pulled off a beautiful day for Heather and Michael!
We also got spoiled with amazing weather! The end of October in Arizona could not be more perfect for weddings!
Congrats Heather and Michael! I hope you have the most amazing time in the Caribbean!
