The Manor at Mountain View Summer Wedding

Aug 17, 2022

I may have sounded like a stalker when I first met these two. I promise I’ll explain, and I promise it wasn’t my intention.

Alaina and Adam inquired with me shortly after the wedding I did for Renee and Brian last year. You can check it out here. The two of them were guests and had heard/seen great things of me while at the wedding.

First off, how can I not instantly love them?

I got so excited when I found out they had been there that, before we had our initial call to get to know each other, I went through Renee and Brian’s gallery searching for the two of them. I wanted to see if I captured the two of them together and if they were partying it up on the dance floor.

Like a true HMP couple, they were!!

I was just so excited about it that on our call I actually sent them the photo, hence why I may have come off like a stalker. Sorry guys, I just loved finding you two and feeling like we had already met prior to our chat. Even if we technically didn’t, it instantly felt like I was catching up with old friends. Heading about changes in their life, wedding plans, and getting to know the two of them!

I instantly knew that working with them would be the absolute best!

I mean, anytime a couple is referred to me by a past HMP couple, I know it is going to be a fantastic day. Guess what? Alaina and Adam’s Manor at Mountain View summer wedding was exactly that! Fantastic! Stunning views. Amazing bridal party. Gorgeous dress. Amazing couple!

The list goes on and on!

I don’t think I’ll ever stop raving about this day! Alaina and Adam were the best. Nothing phased them, and they were up for anything. Personally, I think the photos will show that! They are stunners! Their biggest thing was just capturing as much as possible. They just wanted to enjoy the time with family and friends but wanted to make sure they could look back on the photos so that they would never forget their special day!

It was a sweet sound to my ears!

That is the mission for why I do what I do. It wasn’t until my wedding day that I finally realized the part that was most important to me. It was the only day, ever, that you would have ALL the most important people in one place and at one time. How crazy is that. So I love when my couples realize that and want to make sure they are truly soaking up every minute with their guests. Sure, we will get all of the necessary photos, but all of the candid moments in between tell so much of the story, too!

That truly is the “why” at HMP!

Capturing the full story so that when you look back on the photos, you can see what was going on even if you were somewhere else. Alaina and Adam, I can’t wait for you to flip through that full story soon! For now, these are some of my absolute favorite highlights from your Manor at Mountain View summer wedding! I’m telling you, this one will be in my memory for a very long time!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
