MERCEDES PEN­NER & ZACH PETERS

FROM MERCEDES: The ro­man­tic allure of the for­est served as in­spi­ra­tion for our el­e­gant wood­land wed­ding. I wanted to in­cor­po­rate as many woodsy de­tails as pos­si­ble while main­tain­ing the sim­ple and el­e­gant decor. To keep the colour scheme airy we chose a pal­ette of green, white and light grey with a mix of berry tones. Heier De­signs did an ab­so­lutely amaz­ing job on the flo­rals. They per­fectly brought to life my vi­sion of wispy, ro­man­tic bou­quets for me and the girls. I think I got more com­pli­ments on the bou­quets than any­thing else! Spend­ing time with my brides­maids prior to the wed­ding was so much fun. We all got to­gether be­fore the big day to spend an evening drink­ing wine sur­rounded by flow­ers while we put to­gether the cen­tre­pieces. Each cen­tre­piece was a unique piece of art from one of my gals, and I was so proud of their work. Zach and I rarely dance to­gether, so our first dance was re­ally spe­cial. We chose “Say You Will” by Hearts & Col­ors, a song we both know the words to, for our first twirl to­gether as Mr. and Mrs. One of my favourite me­mories is danc­ing with Zach, fore­heads touch­ing, eyes closed and promis­ing for­ever to each other.
