We love this couple so much that we EACH wanted to write our OWN blog post for this one so…I have known this beautiful couple since Mac and I first started dating almost 6 years ago, and have loved them since day one. You don’t meet couples like Jon and Heather very often.
You should know is that THIS Heather is THE Heather who designed our website! (Craaayzy talented!) She also designed and created all of the stationary at her wedding – the program, seating chart, table numbers, even the boxes that held the favors! Ah-may-zing.
Naturally, Mac and I were super pumped to film this wedding. Who doesn’t want to be a part of their friends wedding?! But from a strictly “wedding cinematographer” perspective, this wedding was a dream. The couple is blindingly gorgeous, they had a first look, the locations were unique and so beautiful, and there was so much heart throughout the entire day. You will notice in the film that Heathers mom is mentioned a lot. She passed away a few years ago. At the rehearsal dinner, her dad presented her with a necklace and earrings that her mom had picked out for her to wear on her wedding day before she passed away. Almost lost it when I found that out. She also wrapped her flowers in fabric from her mom's clothing. Sharon Hastings was very much a part of this day.
For this couple, they consider their friends their family. This is probably why their wedding was by far THE most fun I’ve EVER had at a wedding in my life. Everyone was so incredibly happy for them, all their friends are impossibly fun, AND the dance floor was pa-aaacked all night long.
Heather and Jon… We feel so honored that you invited us to be a part of your wedding day. It was one of those days we’ll never forget. We love you both so very much and can’t WAIT to go on multiple couples trips with you! Congratulations! - Erin
I've known Jon since middle school. We were a pretty cool duo. So cool that we would breakdance every chance we got and I'm quite sure that everyone thought we were extremely awesome. Along with some of our best friends, we grew up together and had many good times skateboarding, snowboarding, skimboarding, wakeboarding… so a lot of boarding. Jon was actually a huge part in getting me started in video. In high school he thought it would be cool if we made a full length skateboard video with some friends. We ended up making 2 skate videos and those are some of the best memories I have. A few years ago he was also my landlord at the infamous "Burrow" where some of my closest friends and I lived. Again, some of the best memories I have and that I'll treasure forever.
Heather is one of my favourite people ever. Period. She's hilarious, a design genius, extremely creative and not to mention the kindest person you'll ever know. She's also the brilliant mind behind our brand refresh and new website. Heather and Jon met in high school and it wasn't long until they were inseparable. Their story spans a long time and they've been through many ups and downs together but through it all they've stuck together and have become stronger. I've always looked up to Jon and Heather. When Erin and I began dating, I truly wanted my relationship with Erin to model theirs. Two people of God, who endlessly support each other and have fun together. So much fun. Check out their film for a glimpse of who these two wonderful people are. Congrats Jon and Heather. We love you two HEEPS! -Mac
