Heather + Ricky :: wedding story
HEATHER GRAY + RICKY PRINSLOO :: MARRIED AT REGALE WEDDINGS & RECEPTIONS – SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA
Heather’s in real estate. Ricky’s in manufacturing. They’ve spent the last 4 years wrapping their lives into one.
Ricky comes off as the very shy, quiet guy. Heather is stunningly sweet & all smiles. Ricky lights up any time she’s near.
Heather & Ricky share their home with a beautiful boxer named Emma. Emma has had a huge part of their lives, including being a part of Ricky’s proposal to Heather. So sweet!
Heather’s father passed away when she was a little girl, but she still felt it important that he was there, in a fashion, to walk her down the aisle. So she wore a small pendant with his photo on her dress. Something discreet & quiet, full of meaning. I loved it.
My biggest challenge at this wedding had to be the height of the groom & best man! I swear, they’re at least 8 feet tall! I’m typically one of the tallest people present with the bridal party… These two made me work hard to get the angles right!
Every photographer has a favorite image from a wedding. Typically it’s one that may be overlooked by others; one that has nothing to do with who’s in the photo or how it’s posed. It instead breathes a moment of life all on it’s own, tells it’s own story or captures a moment filled with simple beauty. This is that photo for me. Heather simply, casually looked around at her gorgeous bridesmaids as we walked from one spot to another & the look on her face of pure & simple joy was what caused me to quickly snap away. This. This is why I love what I do.
Heather & Ricky’s grandmothers played an extra-special role in their wedding day; they graced the wedding party with their laughter & beauty as well as honored the aisle with a truly unique role as flower girls–er ladies.. Women. Flower Grandmas??
Heather & Ricky, it truly was SUCH an honor to spend your wedding day with you! I’ve loved every moment I’ve had with the both of you & all of your families! I wish you both many blessings & true joy in the moments that life brings you!
