Jon and Heather had known each other since high school, but didn't start dating until after college. Jon asked Heather to go to a concert at Red Rocks, but Heather couldn't figure out if he was asking her out on a date or if he just wanted to hang out as friends. It wasn't until Jon kissed her that night that Heather knew the answer!
Jon and Heather started reconnecting after she moved down from Fort Collins after graduating from CSU. They started dating, and Heather immediately fell in love with Jon's heart, sense of humor, laugh and his kindness...(I can honestly say they both carry these attributions and make sure a beautiful couple inside and on the outside). Jon and Heather moved in together pretty early on in their relationship and haven't turned back since. They've been through so much together...but as their obstacles have grown, their bond has continued to deepen even more.
THE PROPOSAL (from Heather's perspective):
"We got engaged in October 2016 in Manchester Vermont. Fall is my favorite season (thus the October wedding), so we booked a week at a bed and breakfast in Vermont for a getaway. It was a picture perfect vacation of wine, good food, hikes, and late night fires. I suspected Jon was going to propose to me, because Jon was acting so nervous the entire vacation. Every time Jon was about to say something, or suggest something, I thought "this is it!", but it wasn't! On the 6th day of the vacation (the day before we were leaving), I had given up the idea that this was going to happen on this vacation. We went on a hike through the mountains, sat down at a bench looking over a mountain lake, and I turned around to Jon getting down on one knee and proposing in the mountains. We had some other vacationers that were walking by take pictures and share that joy. We had no service in the mountains, so when we came down from the hike we were able to tell our family (who had also been anxiously awaiting the news the whole week). We celebrated the rest of the day, and flew back to Colorado the next day to celebrate with our family!"
Jon and Heather, you are a dream couple, thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your special day!
Jon and Heather's beautiful day would not have been possible without all the amazing vendors involved!
