Heather + Wes Downtown Los Angeles Wedding

I was so excited to be a part of Heather + Wes' wedding. They literally bring so much joy to all that know them. I knew this day at the Hudson Loft would be a magnetic day. Despite the 103 degree LA weather, we braved the heat and rolled with it. 

The Story 

It was all a set up….Well, kind of. The idea of Wes and Heather began with a mutual friend who was determined that they needed to meet. Wes had just returned home from spending a year up in Bend, OR, and was advised to keep an eye out for Heather. Meanwhile, Heather was kept in the dark about the whole thing. So when they ended up meeting on their own at a friend’s house a month later, she had no idea why this stranger named Wes was so persistent in trying to talk to her.

Heather had plans the next weekend with a group of friends to head out on a weekend getaway in San Diego, and Wes had plans to go down that same direction for his cousin's wedding. The mutual friends were working overtime and found a way for Wes and Heather to carpool. Well, they totally hit it off, and ended up missing their freeway exit (combo of Heather's bad co-pilot skills and how involved they both were in getting to know each other). When they saw signs for Mexico, they realized that their Encinitas stop was an hour behind them and that something special was in their future.

Fast forward through falling in love with lots of adventures and life packed into four years. 

 Shout out to all the other epic vendors that made this night possible.
