Brandon + Heather|Wedded Bliss

I'm sure you remember Brandon and Heather. I did their engagement pictures back in October. I have been so excited to show you their winter nuptials... and here they are! 

Brandon and Heather's big day finally arrived on December 17th. The weather cooperated perfectly for their winter-themed wedding celebration. Snow flurries were beginning to fall as I arrived at the church! It was as if they had planned it! Heather was already bustling around inside the church getting ready! So, I headed inside to capture the wedding excitement...

My little sister, Olivia, second shot for me for the first time and captured this image of Heather! Stunning!

Heather's flowers were beautiful. Perfect for winter!

Meanwhile... Brandon was gettin' all spiffed up!

Brandon ready to see his bride!

While we were waiting for Heather I snapped a couple shots of Brandon all dapper in his tux!

Brandon and Heather decided to do a "first look" before the wedding ceremony. I highly recommend this to all brides! My husband and I did this and we had alot more time for pictures! When it comes down to it pictures are all you have left from your wedding day, really ... So it is well worth it! Since the weather was so cold (and when I say cold I mean COLD!) Brandon and Heather decided to do their first look inside the church...

The groom's reaction is always priceless!

Happy tears! Love the teardrop on Heather's cheek!

After a few more shots inside the church we headed to downtown Noblesville with the bridal party!

Such a happy group! I didn't have to force any smiles out of these guys!

This bridal party knows how to do "fierce".

After nearly freezing to death I sent the bridal party (except the bride and groom of course) back to the warmth of the church. Brandon and Heather braved the frigid weather with me and we got some shots of the happy couple...

The "dipping" kiss.

Love this storefront we found!

Found these awesome doors (I know... I'm obsessed with doors.)


Since I didn't want the bride and groom to freeze to death before they could tie the knot we headed back to the church to get ready for the ceremony!

Brandon sang to Heather! So sweet!


Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Hilligoss!

Reception time!

So many beautiful details!

I loved these flying lanterns that the crowd used as a send-off for Brandon and Heather!

Brandon and Heather, thanks again for asking me to shoot your wedding! Congrats, you two!
