We’ve been looking forward to Heidi & Colin’s wedding ever since their engagement session. They are such a fun couple and have great personal style, so we just knew this day would be memorable. Set at Newberry Library, which Heidi describes as “a special part of the city…free from busy traffic and noise,” this day was filled with personal touches that created a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. It was exactly the kind of intimate and unique occasion they wanted.
Heidi had told us that this would be a “Do-It-Yourself” kind of wedding, but we had no idea how much care she and her family were putting into every detail. Heidi is a graphic designer and created all of the programs, place cards, and menus for the day. Her mother made her wedding dress, including a heart a patch reminiscent of the similar patch sewn on one of Heidi’s favorite childhood dresses. Her veil and hairpiece were a handmade gift from her grandmother.
It really was a family affair, Colin and Charles (his brother-in-law) wore ties that had belonged to his late-grandfather. All of the tie-clips were gifts from Colin embodying the personality of the wearer. If you look closely, you might see a Dr. Seuss tie or a Batman tie clip! These little accents were perfect ways to include their family and friends, making sure everyone’s personality had a chance to shine. It was an absolute blast to be a part of this wedding day, and to see all the little things that tell Heidi & Colin’s story.
