Heidi + Brandon’s Big Day
Blog By: Monique Ashcraft
We’re kicking off our monthly series of wedding flash backs with this wonderful and engaging couple! Heidi and Brandon brought their big personalities and added *a little bit of spice* into their special wedding day which made it that much more personalized. They had so much love for each other and their guests. They even chose the perfect bridal party to complement their day. Not only were their wedding parties down for a good time, but they were also fun, energetic and made sure to keep the party going for this spirited couple.
The morning started off with the bride and all of her ladies getting ready in matching BUC-EE’s t-shirts. Once hair and makeup wrapped up, these lovely ladies stepped outside to pop some bubbly before getting into their formal outfits for the day.
This couple and their bridal party showed up in style, down to their matching Nikes! All the ladies rocked white Nikes with the wedding date written on the side. The guys rocked black Nikes and fun socks with silly faces on them. Our beautiful bride even showed off her kicks while having her first look with Dad. How sweet the moment was! Their personalities and style didn’t stop there! It shined through during the ceremony as well. Heidi and Brandon chose to do away with tradition.
Instead of a flower girl, they had flower people! Each of them chose a good friend to walk down the aisle throwing petals out for the bride. Everyone enjoyed this fun element and it made for a bit of laughter before the tears.
Directly following the ceremony, this spunky bunch took their group photos. From the typical lined up and cheering group photo all the way to the group marching off to start the reception. Every second was filled with laughter, surprises, and a great crowd of friends lifting up the bride and groom! This crowd did a fantastic job keeping the couple pumped for their special day.
Kicking the reception off on the right foot,with a very enthusiastic “Yes!” from our Venue Manager, Carrigan, the bridal party brought the fun outside for a round of Flip Cup.
Can you guess whose team won? We’ll give you a hint: the team’s leader was wearing white. Finishing a victorious game of flip cup for the bride, Heidi and Brandon shared their first dance out on our terrace under the market lights. Their guests cheered and swooned watching this happy couple make new wonderful memories. Surrounded by loved ones we know these memories will last them a lifetime!
After the first dance, guests headed inside to listen to speeches that made the entirety of the guests crack a smile. Heidi had snuck off and done a quick change before her father daughter dance. Her new dress looked breathtaking as she twirled and swayed with her Dad. We LOVED the fringe detail on this dress! Brandon and his mother knew how to boogie with mom even twirling her son! Not only did the guests enjoy, but the staff also loved getting a peak at all of the entertaining moments.
They concluded the formalities with an exciting cake cutting. Brandon had dared to try to get cake on Heidi- Heidi wasn’t having it and got Brandon first! Smiles were had by both the bride and groom. We’re certain everyone’s cheeks were hurting from all the smiling! To wrap up the reception the couple danced the night away with all of their loved ones. And in true Heidi and Brandon fashion, they left their reception on a red double decker bus just like the ones seen in London! The bridal party had a great time leaving the party in style and the guests waved the couple goodbye.
