Sparks flew (literally!) for the happy couple.

The Couple
A chance work meeting led to Mary and Heiko’s love story. She was living in Germany and he was sent there from London for a meeting at her place of employment. Fast-forward to the fourth anniversary of their dating: engagement in Champagne, France!

The Details
The bride’s sophisticated Vera Wang, with frothy layers of tulle, turned heads. Wtoo slate gray bridesmaids’ dresses from LuLu’s Bridal Boutique added more elegance.

The Party
Holly Tripp worked her event design magic, creating a romantic reception, where Absolute Entertainment added dynamic mood lighting to The Stoneleigh’s boutique-y ballroom. Singer and guitarist Justin Cash’s bluesy and jazz-inflected spins permeated the space—and provided just the right note for Mary and Heiko’s first and last dances.
