Real wedding by Jeff Simpson Photography

Working side-by-side is no new thing to Heidi and James. The gorgeous couple studied architecture at the same university, tackled the same undergrad and graduate programs, and have worked together for three years. Given the couple's closeness and shared interests and expertise, the two architects-in-training-and-in-love expected to have similar design aesthetics, which would make planning a fabulous wedding a breeze. Heidi and James anticipated months of blissful wedding planning in a constant state of agreement, but surprise!! This was not the case :-) While Heidi and James didn't always see eye-to-eye on the wedding details (color palette, wedding party attire, invitation designs, etc.), they readily agreed on the process of designing their wedding. Putting a combined 12 years in design school to work, they transformed a raw outdoor wedding venue space into something spectacular! The wedding vibe was laid-back and romantic with a touch of whimsy. Wedding reception highlights included a fun photo booth, delicious candy bar and a live polo match. Needless to say, this is a wedding we'll always remember!
