Heather and Anthony’s paths first crossed seven years ago and in her matron-of-honor speech, Heather’s twin sister said “Anthony is truly Heather’s soulmate.”

This wedding was a whole mood and the way I’d describe the vibe is “sophisticated, spooky, yet spiritual soulmates.” At KWP, we do a lot of traditional or classic weddings, sure. Lots of hotel ballrooms and we’re all about it – but we also love changing our work and style to fit what the couple truly wants. Sure, we will take all those traditional photos – but we really do work hard to try to capture what the couple wants and their aesthetic. That’s one of my favorite parts of working a wedding – no two days are ever alike.

We’ve worked at the Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe many times – they remodeled their bridal prep room into a color palette that was perfect for this wedding. Heather and Anthony wanted more photos inside than some of my clients, so I’m so glad this room fit the tone of their wedding day – dark romance fantasy forest.

Heather is a stylist so I knew she would bring her personality and talent to her wedding planning. The event was gothic-inspired and fell on Halloween (A Hallowedding if you will) – but the theme was more eerie-enchanted than pumpkins or scary skulls (there were a few skulls!). I loved the glamour and the deep purple and eggplant colors as well as their neon “Til Death” sign. When editing, we tried to go with a slightly more desaturated look than our normal edit, but also make sure the colors they DID embrace really popped, like Heather’s incredible hair.

I love the HGI-Southpointe and we always find unique places to photograph there (and the sunset that day was spectacular and in the perfect spot!) but we do encourage our couples to go off property for variety as well – I found this location nearby that just fit and Heather and Anthony were so kind to indulge us in traveling over and making these images.

After their wedding, these two celebrated with a Las Vegas honeymoon and then came home where they expanded their family – they’re now the proud parents of two beautiful kitty cats!
