Joe and Heather were married on July 2nd, with a ceremony and reception at the Alexlee House in Greenfield, MA.
These two met through mutual friends during their first year at UMass, and Joe left his jacket behind in the building to make sure that he had an excuse to come back the next day! He just kept coming back every day after that, and they quickly became inseparable until, 12 years later, Joe made dinner at their home on Valentine’s Day and proposed over dessert!
The ceremony itself was stunning as Joe and Heather saw each other for the first time as she walked down the aisle. They had written their own vows, and it was clearly emotional for both the two of them and for everyone in attendance.
After the ceremony, it was off to the reception! While there was not live music, they wanted to do something special for their first dance, and they had Shawn, their DJ, perform Edwin McCain’s “I’ll Be,” a favorite from the time when they first met.
During the reception, the two of them sat outside to watch the Greenfield fireworks in the distance. It was the first time they were really alone together, and they really took the time to enjoy each other’s company, listen to music, and just drink in the love of their family and friends.
Heather & Joe, thank you for allowing us to be part of your amazing day! We wish you nothing but happiness together.
