Classic Purple & Yellow Wedding from Viva L’Event

It’s a happy, happy day because I get to feature the fabulous design and styling talents of Viva L’Event today!!! This classic purple and yellow wedding is super pretty from beginning to end. And with the added elements relating to baseball, super fun too. And I’m not just saying that because the groom happens to be a fan of my favorite team, the Boston Red Sox :) Certainly a nice bonus though. And everything captured glamorously by Andi Grant Photography. Come see!

Heather and Chad first met some years ago outside of Heather’s workplace. She worked with a girl (Becky) whose husband (Mark) worked with Chad. With absolutely no intention of setting their friends up whatsoever, the four happened to meet up one day outside the building. Chad was immediately taken with Heather and asked Mark to help set them up on a date. Mark, of course, obliged.

The day of their date, Chad sent Heather flowers with a note that said can’t wait until tonight. They went to The Cheesecake Factory where the food, conversation, and everything really, went great. When he dropped her off at the end of the night, he went in for a kiss, but Heather turned away. Looking back now, Heather can’t for the life of her remember why. They talked for several weeks after that first date, Chad even brought her lunch a few times at work, and then suddenly never spoke or saw each other again. Neither can remember why and it wasn’t until a few years later that things between them really began or began again – depending on your point of view.

On February 15, 2009, Heather received a text message that said you probably have no idea who this is, but Becky tells me you’re single! She knew from the moment she received the text message who it was, he was the only guy she associated Becky with so it wasn’t hard to figure it out. They texted back and forth for several hours that day, into the evening and for several days before finally agreeing to meet up on February 18, 2009.

They met at Keegan’s (in Virginia Beach Town Center) for drinks and caught up on the last few years. The bar was really loud though, so after a few drinks they went to their cars to talk. They did so until the wee hours of the morning and also shared their first, second, third and fourth kiss too! ;) It amazes them to this day just how fast things happened between them after that and how they were able to pick up right where they left off. Even after all those years, it was as if they had never been apart.

Chad decided to pop the question the same day he returned from a trip back home to Boston, MA. The very same day Heather had stayed home from work because she wasn’t feeling well. He called her the moment he landed and explained that he wanted to take her out that night. Reluctantly, because she wasn’t feeling well, Heather agreed. She waited two hours for him to come, which was odd she thought, before he whisked her away for the night.

They went to a restaurant called Rudee’s for dinner and for a walk on the boardwalk after. Heather left her phone in the truck, though Chad suggested several times to bring it with her, before stopping to get ice cream at Dairy Queen. As they walked, Chad told Heather how happy he was with her, that he loved her very much, and that he was so glad she’d given him a second chance. They sat down on a bench so Heather could finish her ice cream. But Chad didn’t stay sitting for long as he was getting down on one knee only seconds later. It was only after she said yes that she realized why Chad had wanted her to take her phone because she wanted to call and text everyone and tell them the good news.

Now, wasn’t that just the perfect Friday pick-me-up? I certainly think so. Besides a bride who wears purple Converse on her wedding day is a-okay in my book ;) Congratulations, Heather and Chad! We wish you so much love and luck and can’t thank you enough for sharing your story with all of us! And the biggest of thank you’s to the lovely ladies of Viva L’Event! I’m still so excited to be featuring your fabulous talents today! xoxo
