No one can say that Heather & Joe rushed into getting married. These lovebirds were high school sweethearts and have been together for 13 years. If I think back to all the hairstyles and fashion faux pas that took place in my high school days – a slight matching hat with socks obsession a la Blossom, very chic blue braces and crimped hair – let’s just say I am more than thrilled that Facebook was not around when I was a teenager. Heather & Joe went to Prom together and then exchanged vows in front of friends and family on the beautiful Playa Conchal beach in sunny Costa Rica. They love each other to bits and pieces – past fashion faux pas and all.

Their wedding, 13 years in the making, took place at the very luxe, very fabulous Reserva Conchal. The vision for their sweet day was brought to life beautifully by top notch wedding designer and planner Larissa Banting of Weddings Costa Rica.

Heather rocked one of the loveliest wedding dresses we have seen – that could only come from the atelier of the mega talented Jenny Packham. S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G. What a timeless dress and the perfect look to say I do to the guy that has been by your side for better or for worse for over a decade already.

Here’s to a zillion and one more days together!
