Who doesn’t love a wedding with plenty of sparkle and tons of luxe florals!? Heather, the bride, had always envisioned having an outdoor wedding, but once she and hubby Brandon visited The Adolphus Hotel and saw the contemporary yet traditional look of the wedding venue, they changed their minds and decided to bring the garden inside the ballroom! Shannon Rose Events brought everything together and the celebration ran seamlessly! Cheers to Heather and Brandon!

After Heather and Brandon’s first date, the couple became almost instantly inseparable. They didn’t know each other very well when they first met but they hit it off so well during their dinner date that they stayed until the restaurant was closing. Their friendship eventually grew into a loving relationship.
Growing up, Heather’s favorite place to spend time was under the giant pecan tree behind her parent’s home. The tree had a big wooden swing, a picnic table and a porch swing. Brandon worked with Heather’s mom to orchestrate a family photo under the tree. As the photo was about to be taken, Brandon got down on one knee and proposed. It was special for Heather’s family to witness the proposal but he also surprised Heather with a number of close family friends and his family to celebrate after. Heather loved the symbolism of proposing under the tree since it represents the past and the future.
